She lost 12 kgs within five months of giving birth to son Taimur, and now Kareena Kapoor Khan aims to shed eight kgs more. The new mother is now in a hurry to shed the extra pounds before she kickstarts Veere Di Wedding.
Bebo’s yoga instructor, Anshuka Parwani, who also has celebrity clients like Jacqueline Fernandez, Malaika Arora, Parineeti Chopra and Huma Qureshi, is however quick to point out that Kareena is not counting kilos, rather she is focussed on strengthening her core muscles, reports Mumbai Mirror.
Parwani, who has been training Kareena since 2009, admits she does not know how much she weighs and what her goal weight is. Anshuka was a commercial pilot till a fatal bike accident left her with multiple fractures and a head injury. She had to quit but physiotherapy, yoga and a strong mind had her walking again. She studied ashtanga yoga and started her own company with Kareena as her first student.
Anshuka has put the actress on a new routine called ‘Flying Fit’ which includes 60 to 75 minutes of aerial twists, along with a high intensity yoga and pilates workout, apart from the usual mix of pranayam, meditation and surya namaskars. “It’s not about jumping but holding postures. Kareena can hold position for up to two minutes which is an achievement,” the yoga instructor proudly told the tabloid.
Parwani goes on to reveal that Kareena was doing yoga until a week before she delivered and started again three weeks after. “Her workout is tailor-made and we keep changing the routines. Post pregnancy, it’s been a lot more about balancing out hormones and the endocrine system. She practises the ‘Aerial Silk Yoga’ which uses a low-hanging hammock to aid traditional postures by supporting your entire body weight mid-air. Kareena and I are always working towards achieving more aligned postures through relaxation and breathing. I usually travel with her so we don’t miss a session and when I can’t she does cardio,” she says.
