Actor Yami Gautam on Sunday wrote about her experience of overcoming her chronic pain, resulting from a “serious neck injury”, which often came in the way of everyday activities.

The actor, who was last seen on the big screen in Bala, posted a picture of herself doing yoga on Instagram and said that the coronavirus-induced nationwide lockdown helped her focus on her body and “heal” from the pain.

“Everytime I would try practising Yoga, I would be left more in pain owing to my condition, hence my experience never encouraged me to continue. But this time I self-tutored my way through and allowed my body to heal itself inside out and it has worked like never before,” the 31-year-old actor wrote.

Yami Gautam said due to her injury, she always had to be cautious about every movement.

This post is very personal… Having suffered a serious neck injury, Iv always had to be extra cautious – esp owing to the fact the amount of physical exertion due to dance , workout, non stop travel, physical activity, action, painful footwear etc etc & this list is endless, resonates with being an actor… somehow it’s always been about never expressing the pain beneath the surface & rather conditioning your ownself to bear it & like its said,,,the show must go on… But this lockdown, I got to explore something which I couldn’t before ! Everytime I would try practising Yoga, I would be left more in pain owing to my condition, hence my experience never encouraged me to continue.. but this time I self-tutored my way through & allowed my body to heal itself inside out and it has worked like never before ! This lockdown was not about ‘looking fit’ or ‘ workout of the day’ … it was the time where I listened & just went with the flow ! I am no expert (which you shall clearly see in the images😋) ! I took my first baby step towards this journey, which shall not stop … A special thanks to @sarvesh_shashi & @smeghe for being instrumental in this soulful endeavour.. I am sure you can’t wait to meet & make those necessary corrections which you shall be tempted to make as soon as you see them 😋☺️
