Bollywood actor and fitness enthusiast Jacqueline Fernandez was in New Delhi recently at a Raw Pressery event, a brand associated with cold pressed juices. When we caught up with her, she had lots to share about her Yoga practice and how she always manages to be so high on energy.

I’m very healthy, I’m very fit as well. It’s given me so much more energy, so much more discipline in my life and it does definitely make you happier, more confident and a better person to be around.

Yoga and Jacqueline

Yoga allowed her to talk to herself, to realise that she can self-talk her body into doing anything, says Jacqueline. When it comes to her routine, she adds she practices it thrice a week, while on other days she ensures her body gets enough stretching on other days.

Yoga for me is just a philosophy and a way of life. It’s so, so important that we take out that little time in a day when we are not stressing about something, or thinking about phone calls, we are not on our phone or our social media or in meetings, but literally we are just one with our body.

When Doing Yoga, Remember to...

...pay attention to the form, the actor shares. When she began working on her splits, she wouldn’t pay much attention to the form and alignment and just go for the simple physical act of splitting. However, once Jacqueline started paying attention to these aspects, despite all her practice, it felt like she’s starting the split from scratch.

The second thing to keep in mind is to keep your practice pleasurable. You’re more likely to return to it in that case.

Don’t make Yoga a painful process.The more pleasurable I made it, the more I was breathing into it and relaxing into it, the better I was becoming at it.
