Actor Sonnalli Seygall, who shoots her next projects in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, decided to take the opportunity to learn a new form of yoga during her stay there.
As a fitness enthusiast, Sonnalli Seygall believes it’s all the more important to focus on health and wellness, especially with these current pandemic scenarios.
The actor, who is filming her next projects in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, decided to take the opportunity to learn a new form of yoga during her stay there.
“Rishikesh is known as the land of yoga and here on every corner you have a yoga school. I just came across Acroyoga, which involves more than one person and is a combination of yoga and acrobatics. I just happened to try it. I don’t want to blow my trumpet, but I’ve never done a full lesson, but I realized I’m good at it. For me it was about letting go. Given the Covid crisis, I thought it was a good time to try a new form of yoga,” she says.
Talking about the importance of both mental and physical health in such times, Seygall says one should not compromise in either. What we do with our minds manifests in our bodies, I also think what we do with our bodies helps our minds,” she says, adding: “Luckily I don’t have the virus yet. I don’t know how to deal with that part. What I can tell people is to keep their immunity high. Stress causes a sip in immunity and that doesn’t help in these situations. I haven’t stopped my breathing exercises and there are many things you can do to be mentally positive. I know it’s hard, but live every day and that’s the only advice I can give in these times.”
On the job front, Seygall admits that things have again entered a paranoia phase and that everything is right on her agenda. “Everything is messed up again, and I literally feel like I’m back in April of last year. I had a full work schedule planned. I had a work event in Dubai that was cancelled, a shoot was postponed, a wedding in Agra was pushed. It’s so uncertain… you could plan something, but it could change overnight. We’ve all gotten used to all that uncertainty,” she concludes.
