Malaika Arora opened up about his accident earlier this year saying his body had been through a lot of shock and needed time to recover. On International Yoga Day, the actress, in a recent interview with India Today, revealed that after encountering the accident, she wanted to do yoga as she knew it would make a big difference to her “mental state. and physical”.

Recalling her difficult times, the 48-year-old actress said: “Without shedding light on the situation, besides my recovery, the one thing I kept asking my doctor was when I I could resume my yoga practice. I couldn’t do it immediately. I could only start with basic yoga at first. I knew that yoga would make a big difference to my mental and physical state, that’s why I I kept talking to my doctor about it. The day my trainer came home and did a class, I was in tears.

The actress added: “My body has suffered a lot of shocks [post the accident] and needed time to recover. When I could fit 45 minutes to an hour out of my yoga class, it made me so happy. Today, two and a half months have passed since the accident, and I have resumed my practice and I am so happy about it. Thank you, yoga.”

The incident happened on April 2 in Khopoli, Maharashtra, when Malaika was returning from Pune to Mumbai and her Range Rover was caught in a pile-up of three vehicles on the Mumbai-Pune highway. She suffered minor injuries and was sent to hospital for treatment. The actress was then rushed to Apollo Hospital in Navi Mumbai for treatment. After a day, she was discharged from the hospital and taken home by her actor boyfriend Arjun Kapoor.

Malaika Arora has featured as a judge in many Indian reality shows. She takes yoga classes for fitness and is often broke after working out. Meanwhile, the actress is making headlines for her relationship with Arjun Kapoor. Reportedly, the couple will also be part of the new season of Karan Johar’s controversial talk show ‘Koffee With Karan’ which will air later this year.

I don’t know about you, but I often forget to train my calves. Until now, they weren’t something that worried me too much when doing squats, lunges, and deadlifts. That said, a recent conversation with a running coach made me stop and think about my calf strength – your calf muscles absorb the impact when you run or walk and propel you forward. They’re a staple when it comes to lower body strength, so why did I overlook them?

Never afraid of a challenge, I decided to add 100 calf raises a day to my routine for a week to see what happened. As a marathon runner, my schedule includes about five runs a week, plus a few weight training sessions, and a few Pilates or yoga classes thrown in for good measure.

Is yoga too white and rich?

Nadia Gilani had high hopes when she started working as a yoga teacher in London in 2018. Although teaching yoga was never the plan – Gilani was a media journalist by trade – she was introduced to the practice at age 16 by his mother and it had been a big part of his life ever since.

After going through various difficulties in her personal life, including the death of her grandmother, she believed that teaching yoga full time would give her the peace and direction she needed.

“Because I loved yoga so much, I thought I would be living the dream when I started teaching, but I was let down by the industry almost instantly,” she says. Stylist. “I had major impostor syndrome. I was going to all these auditions where I was the only person of color trying out, so I felt like the odd one out.

“I was seeing all these styles of yoga that were very different from the way I was teaching and next to the other instructors with their nimble bodies and fancy gym clothes, I felt like I didn’t have the air of the game”, she continues. “I ended up buying myself all these multicolored leggings and tops to look like a ‘yoga teacher’ and be taken seriously.”

Gilani often felt conflicted between meeting the expectations of studio owners and students in a yoga class and sharing the practice in a way that felt authentic to her. “I spent hours choreographing elaborate sequences and creating hard-hitting playlists because I knew that was what they wanted, even though I didn’t believe that was how yoga should be taught.”

Looking back on that time in her life, Gilani remembers feeling upset, stressed and anxious most of the time. She found herself working within an elitist, whitewashed wellness industry that she hated and that seemed totally at odds with the practice she had known since her teenage years.

“It was painful for me to see yoga being twisted, decontextualized, and repackaged into something so far removed from what it was meant to be.”

She explains that when yoga first appeared in ancient India thousands of years ago, it was about making sense of the world, discovering yourself, and meditating. “The new practice seems to have become a selfish, fitness-focused, fashionable, expensive and in many ways elitist activity,” she says.

As Gilani continued to see problems with the modern yoga industry, she couldn’t ignore them or stop thinking about them, so she started writing as a way to deal with her feelings. “I didn’t take writing seriously until I resigned from my studio job and felt able to speak freely about the state of modern yoga,” she says.

The Yoga Manifesto: A Guide to Decolonizing Yoga

She started writing long Instagram posts about the cultural appropriation of yoga and the Instagramification of wellness. She didn’t get much response to begin with, but when the UK went into lockdown in March 2020, that all changed.

As Gilani continued to post, it seemed his message resonated with more and more people. “My posts were full of people of color telling me how grateful they were for me speaking up and putting their feelings into words.”

As her community continued to grow, she was quick to secure a book deal, and in October 2020 Gilani began work on the The Yoga Manifesto. “I wanted to take my pain and my anger and turn it into something positive that could make a small difference.”

Part memoir, part manifesto, her debut book explores where yoga came from, how it evolved into the trendy wellness product it is today, and what the future holds for it. ancient practice.

Cultural Appropriation vs Appreciation

One issue Gilani discusses at length in the book is cultural appropriation. What does it look like in yoga? It’s Om tattoos, mispronounced Sanskrit chants, classes that involve booze and endless namaste puns, she says. “It’s about taking the ancient Indian practice and reorienting it to something completely different and profiting from it, without respecting or acknowledging where it came from.”

So how can we practice in a culturally sensitive way? It all comes down to integrity and respect, says Gilani. “I think it’s about looking at your own practice and asking yourself if it feels respectful to you. If you want to sing, for example, learn the meaning of mantras and practice your Sanskrit pronunciation.

It is also important to recognize that yoga is not just a physical practice. “The way we treat yoga today is very much tied to the physical body, but it is a philosophical practice and the asanas (postures) are only part of a larger spiritual system. I think it’s really important to recognize that.

Should we partake in the different styles of yoga popping up all over Instagram like puppy yoga, beer yoga, and hip-hop yoga? “I’m not here to tell anyone what to do, but again, it’s about looking at your own practice with integrity and respect.” For Gilani, these variations contradict what yoga was designed for.

“I don’t think they can be described as yoga. Poses are a means for many enlightenments, so I don’t see how the practice is going to work if you layer all those crazy distractions like up-tempo music, puppies, and booze.

If you’re concerned about cultural appropriation and want to learn more, she advises taking the time to educate yourself on yogic principles. “We’re sick of being asked questions about cultural appropriation so do your own thing. The information is there, it’s not that hard to find.

Looking at the way yoga is marketed, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s exclusively for thin, blonde, hyper-flexible white women who eat superfoods, wear expensive gym clothes, and post “workout workouts.” yoga” carefully curated on social media. This is a major problem, says Gilani, because it excludes and disempowers people of color — both teachers and practitioners — who don’t feel welcome in a predominantly white space.

And it’s not just people of color who are being pushed away from the billion-dollar industry. There seems to be little room for people from LGBTQ+ communities, people with disabilities, and other groups that don’t reflect the stereotype of modern yoga. “We’re so creative with our yoga classes in terms of hitting the playlists, booze, and puppies, why aren’t we creative in making it accessible?” Gilani said.

Another major hurdle is the commercialization of yoga. “Not only are yoga classes expensive, with studios often located in affluent areas, but training to become a yoga teacher is expensive – I paid £3,000 for my training,” she explains.

These high prices suggest that well-being is a privilege, says Gilani, and shouldn’t be. “Yoga is so powerful and should be easily accessible to as many people as possible, especially those who are so often overlooked by the wellness industry.”

Gilani acknowledges that on the face of it, things are looking up when it comes to diversity and representation in yoga. “After George Floyd died, people became obsessed with diversity and inclusion and they started offering various models in their marketing,” she recalls. “While representation is important, if your efforts stop there and you still keep prices high and you don’t hire teachers of color, that’s not good enough.”

Is it time for a revolution in the yoga industry?

“The yoga industry needs a massive shake-up, we can’t go on like this. The world needs better,” says Gilani. “Everyone involved in yoga – companies, brands, media influencers social workers, teachers and students – however we interact with yoga, we need to look at how we do it.”

Although the yoga industry is riddled with problems, it still has hope for its future. “It may seem like an insurmountable task, but we can all take action to change the world, it just takes effort and willpower.”

What does this look like in practice? In her book, Gilani offers an eight-part manifesto detailing how we can all do our part to restore yoga, preserve its roots, and make it accessible to all.

“One of the most important things that needs to happen is awareness,” she says. “If you have a yoga business, I think you should live in the spirit of the practice. Look at the environment you are in and think about how you can meet the needs of the surrounding community and make it better. to serve so that it crosses the doors.

Prioritizing opportunities for teachers of color, paying teachers fairly, providing scholarships and bursaries for training courses, and offering courses that meet different needs are also crucial steps, Gilani says.

As students, we can take a look at where we choose to do yoga, we can ask our teachers about their journey, and we can try to practice more mindfully, without the namaste slogan t-shirts. and mala beads.

“With the Yoga Manifesto, I know there’s a lot of criticism and I’m tearing things up but it’s in order to rebuild and create something better. People have the power to change everything. This may sound drastic, but I really believe it.

Nadia Gilani’s first book, The Yoga Manifesto, published by Pan Macmillan is available now.

Brooke Burke is determined to help others lead healthy lifestyles, especially after losing her beloved brother.

The star’s younger brother, Tommy Burke, affectionately known as “Fatcat” by those close to him, died suddenly on July 20, 2021 – a day after his 44th birthday. According to a GoFundMe created by Tommy’s family, he left behind a wife and 10 children.

The former ‘Dancing with the Stars’ host later cited her brother’s death as morbid obesity.

“I’m determined to start and continue this conversation because losing my brother to obesity a year ago – I think that shouldn’t have happened,” the 50-year-old told Fox. NewsDigital. “I wish I had a better understanding of the disease back then. I wish I had known what I’m going through now. And I think when we start to open up the dialogue, we can have the conversation and encourage people to understand their bodies, so they can create change.”

“It’s not about losing for me,” she shared. “It’s about living, and that’s part of my commitment, on top of the tragedy that I’ve been through with my own family. I feel committed to having this conversation, and it goes way beyond the type of work that I do in the field of health and wellness. It’s really about educating yourself. It’s about living.

Burke joins Queen Latifah as a panelist on the “It’s Bigger Than Me” tour, which aims to spark conversations about “how we can all support and empower anyone at any stage of their health journey.”

He cited that more than 40% of adults in the United States, or two out of five, live with obesity, which is associated with “at least 60 health conditions”. He stressed that obesity is “a health issue, not a character flaw”, which is why encouraging those who aspire to take charge of their health journey is so essential.

During an appearance on the “Tamron Hall Show” in October last year, Burke said his brother had never been overweight as a child. He dealt with obesity later in life due to his lifestyle and economic hardship. Trying to cope with their father’s addiction was another factor, among others.

The fitness guru revealed that at one point he managed to lose 70 pounds while living with her at different times in his life. She described heartfelt conversations they shared when he admitted to being afraid of losing his life. More than anything, he wanted to live for his family.

Burke revealed that many misconceptions still exist regarding obesity. It’s much deeper than food.

“There are a lot of misconceptions out there,” she explained. “There are medical conditions that sometimes prevent people from leading healthier lives, so this whole campaign is about educating ourselves and understanding the medical issues of obesity and understanding that obesity is a disease.

“A lot of people don’t see it that way. We want to create a level of comfort so people can talk about it and learn… We want to create a safe space with compassion so people can start learning about their own bodies. and be inspired.”

Burke noted that maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be difficult on its own, even after losing weight. This is why the practice of self-care is so vital, she stressed.

“I think you have to find things that you love,” the mother-of-four explained. “I like to inspire people to focus on the things they can have rather than what they can’t have. I think it’s important to create support in the self-care space. I thinks it’s about changing your inner dialogue and the way you approach things and building your self-confidence and your body confidence, which is a big part of this campaign.”

“It’s not about body confidence in your size and shape,” she continued. “It’s the confidence that you can do the things you want to do in your life, that you have the energy to live a long life, that you can do the things you love. That’s a big part of the philosophy that I have in my approach to fitness I want to encourage and inspire people to develop a lifestyle that they can maintain to create the desired changes.

Prior to Tommy’s tragic death, Burke launched a fitness app called Brooke Burke Body in 2017. It offers a variety of workouts that can be done at home for all fitness levels. She’s been known to use objects around her house to show how surprisingly simple an at-home workout can be.

“We had so much fun using a stable chair to do step-ups, using water or wine bottles if you don’t have weights, using mop or broom sticks,” she said. “The goal is to use your own body weight with no equipment… We try to take the excuse factor out so people can get into a program and conquer it. I think that builds self-confidence, as well as the desire to want to get up and start over.”

Burke said she’s also created “a very comprehensive free PDF” that offers recipes to complement a revamped lifestyle.

“If you were to rummage through my fridge you would find lots of greens, vegetables, lots of nut milks, cheese, avocados, fresh meat, salmon and tea – I love tea,” he said. she declared. “There’s vinegar, Dijon mustard, olives, eggs, spices, lots of hot sauces. You will also find pre-made quinoa. It’s a question of organization and preparation. can have everything individually wrapped for the family so they can choose. They can make a bowl of homemade cereal. For example, we will put in it green vegetables, chopped avocados, mushrooms, olives, sprouts and vegetables – things already prepared and at hand. It makes it easier for my family and encourages them to be creative in the kitchen. »

The star noted that she keeps sugar cravings at bay with cocoa, dates and nut butters which can be added to a morning smoothie. It’s also important to stay hydrated throughout the day, she said, adding that it “plays an important role in the experience of hunger.” She also encourages people to find a workout routine that speaks to them.

“I think fitness can be fun,” she said. “But we have to reinforce that mindset. We have to look inside and not be so critical, so hard on ourselves for what we see on the outside. On the days when I don’t feel better, I force myself to do it. I realized that when you do it, you will feel really good afterwards. It gives me energy and a sense of accomplishment.

“I teach classes, which keeps me honest and engaged, but sometimes I schedule workouts with friends,” Burke said. “Finding a responsible buddy can help. And it all depends on how I feel that day. Maybe one day I’ll take a yoga class where I can stretch a lot or go for a walk the next day. L Digital space is also useful The goal is to keep moving.

Burke is hopeful about her future and how she can use her platform to help others. And Tommy always stayed on his mind.

“I think it’s important for people to understand what the issues are,” she said. “When we think about obesity, we have to go inside and understand why someone might be struggling. There are other issues we may not be aware of. What works for someone? one may not work for another. It’s a process.”

“I miss him,” Burke said of his brother. “I will always miss him. I wish he was still here. He should always be here. The movie playing in my head is a long and beautiful memory of our family and our children. It will never fade .”
