Check out these yoga postures that look hilariously similar to a few popular Bollywood dance moves. You could probably hit the dance floor instead of doing your regular yoga routine.

1. Maar Daala

The slithering move with the back twist in the songMaar Daala from the 2002 movie Devdas became a huge hit. We think Madhuri shows us a combination of the bhujangasana and a bit of bharadvajasana here.

2. Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh

Here’s a head-turner. Don’t you think this look-over-your shoulder step in the song Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh... from the 1955 movie Shree 420 is uncannily similar to the vakrasan? Palat!

3. Gandi Baat!

Now we know where Shahid Kapoor and Prabhudeva got this hip numbing move from for the film R... Rajkumar! Ramdev should have certainly walked away with the Best Choreographer award here.

4. Locha Hand Move

A bizarre comparison between Arjun Kapoor and Baba Ramdev, but they do have similar moves, don’t they? While the gif above shows Baba Ramdev displaying a light hand exercise, Arjun Kapoor does a very similar dance step in 2 States.

5. Dhak Dhak Pranayam
