Daya Vaidya takes her fitness and overall health seriously. Her workout routine has never been the same, especially after becoming a mom. “In 2012 it’s all about flexibility, strength, and endurance. Since I gave birth to my daughter, my flexibility has really decreased and because I am continuously carrying her, my shoulders are starting to round,” said the actress.
“I’ve noticed that if I find a few moments throughout my day to take three deep breaths, it actually improves my posture. Picking up a tip from years of dancing, expanding your rip cage and breathing from your diaphragm also makes you stand up straighter! For endurance I jog regularly, but want to increase the amount of time I stretch and add in a couple of days of yoga,” she added.
