We all know that Shilpa Shetty and Bipasha Basu have been promoting a fit lifestyle not only within Bollywood but are also extending their reach towards masses in India and abroad. Shilpa, who is also a successful entrepreneur now, took to social media recently to share her story about how yoga turned her life around and it is definitely worth a read.
Shilpa Shetty took to Instagram to share a video of her doing yoga and wrote a note on the same talking about her experience of yoga and how it helped her fight her demons which included her battle with cervical spondylosis. Her note read, “This video means a lot you will know why.. because there can be No Courage if one is not scared.. Courage is attempting what you are scared of .. Doing yoga for 15 years now and I have no shame in admitting that I was “scared“ to attempt the Sirsaasana.. Having suffered with Cervical spondolisis (still have goose bumps remembering the time I was bedridden for a month) with a C4 C5 disc injury in my neck and recurrent issues having to use a neck brace after (which is why I took up Yoga) It’s taken me 15 years to triumph over my demons..was always very tempted to attempt but I didn’t want to risk my neck as I’m inundated with responsibilities as a mom and a professional.. then I used my “age” as an alibi. So told my Yoga teacher and he said.. “If not now then when??!!The greatest pleasure is when you are able to do what you cannot do”..Started slowly with the wall a month ago and now without any support..only going to show that there is something inside us that is greater than any obstacle.. you just have to have Faith.. and BELIEVE. Will power , determination, positivity and practice will make anything you want to achieve possible..Today I can proudly say ,Yes I have Courage and that’s a great weapon to have. Thank you Guruji @sairajyoga for pushing me #mondaymotivation.”
Shilpa Shetty has been promoting about yoga and its benefits at various events and she is even invited by corporates to encourage and help their employees embrace a healthier lifestyle. On the other hand, while the actress is busy focusing on her entrepreneurial ventures, she is yet to make announcements about her return to Bollywood.
