Morning time is indeed a better time to exercise and do yoga, as compared to any other time of the day. And this is something that actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra truly believes in. Every Monday, the actress specifically shares a particular yoga sequence, and why she includes it in her routine. As part of #MondayMotvation today, she shared her video doing Eka padasana, or the one-foot balancing pose. This yoga asana is known to improve overall balance and strength in legs, spine and arms. The word eka means one and pad stands for foot.

Agrees Kundra and writes in the caption of her post, “The best time to practice yoga is early in the morning on an empty stomach. Limited pollution of all kinds allow you to breathe and centre your focus with ease. Focusing on yourself allows you to align your mind and body, thereby enhancing your body’s balancing abilities.”
