Motherhood is a beautiful experience. But, after a whole roller-coaster of hormonal alterations, losing pregnancy weight can be hard. This experience is correctly captured through Hruta Durgule’s character Vaidehi in Phulpakhru on ZEE5. Like her, if you are looking to shed some kilos, try Vrksasana.
Stand straight on the ground, fold your one leg sideways and place your sole on your thigh. Join your hands together and close your eyes. Along with weight loss, this increases flexibility and improves your balance and focus.
