Yoga has nothing to do with religion: Shilpa Shetty

Monday, June 22, 2015

Bollywood diva and fitness freak Shilpa Shetty yesterday said yoga has nothing to do with religion, but is a pure science. "I don't think it would have been declared as an international event if it had anything to do with religion. Yoga is a pure science," she said at the International Yoga Day celebrations at Sree Kanteerava Stadium, organised by the state government here.

About her favourite yoga posture, she said, "Each pose has a work on your body but there is no such thing as favourite. But I think all encompassing is the Surya Namaskar. When you do Surya Namaskar it works on every part of your body. You don't need to do anything after that," she said.

Shetty also advocated people to prefer yoga over workouts in gyms as the ancient science can be practiced free of cost.

"Yoga aligns your mind, your body, your soul, and if this happens, there is nothing in life that you cannot achieve," she said.

Shetty also called upon people to inculcate yoga among children because they are the future.

She did a DVD on yoga to change the pre-conceived perception that yoga is for old people.
