This is not the first time we have seen a celebrity pull off headstand or Sirsasana. From Malaika Arora to Jacqueline Fernandez, celebrities have shown their fitness level by doing the yoga pose.

Benefits of headstand or Sirsasana

Sirsasana is known to prevent premature aging and keep the brain and other sensory organs active and alert. It improves skin health and the health of the reproductive system. According to yogojournal.com, this yoga asana also strengthens the arms, legs, spine and abdominal organs. It improves digestion as well.
