Yami Gautam-healing neck injury
“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 & this list is endless, resonates with being an actor [sic],” she wrote.
“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,” Gautam, 31, added.
“This lockdown, I got to explore something which I couldn’t before! Every time I would try practicing 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!” she wrote.
“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 see in the imagesߘ?)! I took my first baby step towards this journey, which shall not stop,” the star added.
She said with yoga she is on the path towards betterment. Yami Gautam also thanked her yoga instructor in her post. The Bollywood actress has 11.9 million followers on Instagram.
