It is no secret that Malaika Arora swears by yoga; the fitness enthusiast has caught our attention time and again by acing various yoga poses. A while ago, Malaika showed us how to do Halasana, an inverted yoga posture. This time, she took to Instagram to post a picture of herself doing another asana which needs a lot of flexibility.

In her latest post, Malaika is seen doing Parivrtta Utkatasana or Revolved Chair Pose. The pose strengthens the middle and lower back and increases flexibility of the spine. It tones the thighs, buttocks and hips, according to yogaoutlet.com. It also tones digestive organs, helps in detoxification and improves overall health.
