She Snorkels

According to this photo on Instagram, one of Hegde's favorite beach activities is snorkeling. Hegde captioned the photo, "Found Nemo! He and his friends were cuties." Just be sure to wear a mask. "Chlorine is a pretty powerful disinfectant and can, in fact, cause some damage to the outer layer cells that protect the cornea," says Dr. Muriel Schornack, a Mayo Clinic optometrist. "The eye becomes red, irritated. You might become photophobic, or sensitive to light. Your vision might blur a little bit, and your eyes are going to feel irritated or even, frankly, painful," says Dr. Schornack.


She Does Pilates

Hegde is a big fan of doing Pilates as a workout. She posted this reel on Instagram of herself doing exercises on a revolver, with a trainer. She captioned the reel, "Me trying to burn off last night's dessert." "Some of the principles that guide the Pilates method include concentration on each movement, use of the abdomen and low back muscles, flowing movement patterns that are precise and a steady and controlled breathing. Depending on the exercise, Pilates routines can be performed on specially-designed apparatuses, including a bed-like structure called a reformer, or on a mat or blanket," says the Cleveland Clinic.


She Does Yoga

Another of Hegde's favorite workouts is yoga. She posted this photo on Instagram of her doing a yoga pose, captioning the post, "Next up.. take the other foot off the ground and fly off into the sunset." "While most of the evidence for the effects of yoga on weight loss is anecdotal or experiential, yoga teachers, students and practitioners across the world find that yoga helps to support weight loss. Many teachers specialize in yoga programs to promote weight management and find that even gentle yoga practices help support weight loss. People do not have to practice the most vigorous forms of yoga to lose weight. Yoga encourages development of a positive self-image, as more attention is paid to nutrition and the body as a whole. A study from the Journal of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine found that regular yoga practice was associated with less age-related weight gain. The lifestyle study of 15,500 adults in their 50's covered 10 years of participants' weight history, physical activity, medical history and diet," says the Yoga Alliance.


She Does Leg Workouts

Hegde posted this video on Instagram of herself doing squats on one leg. She captioned the video, "Burning all that sugar I've eaten in the past 3 days." "Do leg slides to tone your abdominal and leg muscles. Lie flat on your back and slightly bend your knees. Inhale and slide one leg to a straight position. Exhale and return to the starting position. Repeat with the other leg," says the Mayo Clinic.


She Gets Outside

Hegde is a big fan of going outside and getting fresh air. In February last year, Hegde posted this photo on Instagram of her hiking. ""We get our vitamin D from the sun. Most of us don't get a lot of sun in the winter. So many of us start to see low vitamin D in the winter months, and there are a few studies that suggest low vitamin D may make you more susceptible to colds and flu," says the Mayo Clinic.
