Talking about practising yoga while being pregnant, Sharma said, “As yoga is a big part of my life, my doctor recommended that I can do all such asanas that I was doing before I was pregnant barring twists & extreme forward bends, but of course with the appropriate and required support.”

In the photo, the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actress is seen standing upside down. “For the Shirshasana, which I have been doing for many years, I ensured that I used the wall for support and also my very able husband supporting my balance, to be extra safe. This was also done under the supervision of my yoga teacher Eefa Shrof who was virtually with me through this session. I’m so glad I could continue my practice through my pregnancy.”
