An Actor’s Challenge

DC_Govind-Arun-Ahuja.JPGWhy do you practice yoga? For some people, it’s because they want to feel better, whereas for others they want to look better. Most of the time, though, it’s a combination of both – and we all know how satisfying a regular yoga practice can be.

That’s why so many actors practice yoga – being and looking fit in both mind and body is absolutely vital to their careers.

Recognizing this essential fact, Govinda Arun Ahuja, a popular Bollywood actor, recently decided to make yoga his exercise of choice. In an effort to shift his career from a comic actor to an action hero, Govinda has been putting serious time into his exercise regimen, which includes the practice of martial arts. With assistance from a trainer, Govinda has now added yoga to help him reach his goal.

In a recent interview, Govinda explained that “Yoga has changed my life. No matter what my schedule, I’ve got to do yoga every morning. I feel the difference within me.” He admits that it’s not all about the health benefits, though. “It’s not about just losing the weight. No, yoga is about self-discipline, about toning the body. I feel myself losing inches around my waist. I feel fitter.” And, with his self-deprecating sense of humor, Govinda adds, “I can get into tight clothes without cringing.”

Of course, you don’t have to be a celebrity to appreciate the full benefits of yoga. No matter what your career is, a regular yoga practice can only enhance your mind, body and spirit.
