She Does Iyengar Yoga
"It's been five to six years that I have been doing Iyengar Yoga. I love it because it is based on alignment of the body and is very good for your mental health, too. It is like meditation, it is a great stress reliever and promotes positive inflow, which I really enjoy. That's the main reason I do Iyengar yoga. The physical benefits are secondary," she said to News 18. She added: "I feel really calm, it makes you really strong mentally. You can deal with anything. I keep travelling a lot and I don't like long flights. So, whenever I am taking a long flight like 10 hours, I get very stressed. And I have realised Iyengar Yoga really helps me. Also, it has helped me with my food cravings. I used to love sugar. Since I started doing Iyengar Yoga regularly, all the sugar cravings have gone away. The days I do my practice, I sleep more deeply. All these little things help me in my day to day life."
She Doesn't Sample Other Kids of Yoga
"Today there is one form of yoga which I call the fashion yoga. They play loud music and do yoga. That is not the real practice. The real practice is going within yourself. So, you should not do yoga with loud music and mirrors around, because that distracts to your senses. For me, Iyengar Yoga works the best," she said to News 18.
She Has Done Capoeira
"Killing it with capoeira fitness, the ankle weights add to the challenge #capoeira #gym #tonedbody," Mallika captioned a video once. Capoeira "is a Afro-Brazilian martial art," says Alfred Kendrick of Fit Arts. "It could be up to 500 years old. It came from African slaves that went to Brazil and they wanted to train martial arts, but they weren't allowed to. I would describe KCapoeiraatta as the ultimate body expression. And the mind is kind of like a game of chess, but you can express yourself with slow movements, fast movements, or you can jump, you can kick. I mean, there's just so many different ways to express yourself in Capoeira. So I think it's a beautiful art that everyone should give it a try."
She is a Vegetarian and Vegan
"I was always a vegetarian and for the last 10 years, I am a vegan. I don't even take dairy products. I follow a very simple diet, mostly 'ghar ka khana'. I feel it is the healthiest thing. I think what our grandparents used to eat was real food full of nutrition. Now there is so much pollution and pesticides, and the quality of food has gone down. So, we have to be careful about what we consume, nutrition-wise," Mallika told News 18.
She Snacks on Nuts
"Research suggests that eating nuts may:
- Lower your low-density lipoprotein, or LDL or 'bad,' cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which play a major role in the buildup of deposits called plaques in your arteries.
- Improve the health of the lining of your arteries.
- Lower levels of inflammation linked to heart disease.
- Reduce the risk of developing blood clots, which can lead to a heart attack and death," says the Mayo Clinic.
