Panday is a big fan of practicing yoga, and she likes to do different styles and variations of yoga. One of these styles is aerial yoga, which involves doing poses in the air, and with bands. The studio Anushka Yoga shared this series of photos of Panday doing different poses on Instagram. Yoga is great because "it's the physical stretching, but it's the breath," says certified yoga therapist Judi Bar to the Cleveland Clinic. "And it's the focusing on, 'I'm breathing and I'm watching my alignment as I move.' But actually is one of the stress busters because you're focusing on something and taking your mind off of all the things that are going around in your head."

  • longer, leaner muscles
  • injury prevention
  • relief from stress and back pain
  • enhanced athletic performance
  • heightened mind-body awareness," says the Mayo Clinic.
