How Geeta Basra stays fit during pregnancy

April 07, 2021 12:39 IST

Britain born and raised actress Geeta Basra, who is pregnant with her second child, took to Instagram to reveal the one thing that is helping her tide smoothly through this phase.

'During COVID, there is very little to no physical activity, you can't go anywhere, (it is) unsafe to go to gyms, especially for expecting mothers,' Geeta, who is married to cricket legend Harbhajan Singh, noted.

'The one thing that has got me through this pregnancy is YOGA.'

Before her pregnancy, Geeta said she practiced yoga daily.

'But with pregnancy, with constant backaches and cramps, yoga has surely given me relief in many ways,' she added.

Sharing a tip for to-be moms, she said, 'For many expectant mothers out there looking for some form of exercise, this is something I truly recommend.'

'Any form of training and practice should ONLY be done under the supervision of a professional.'
