Kareena Kapoor has led many of her friends to follow yoga. Malaika Arora Khan is the latest to be added to the list that includes the likes of Saif Ali Khan, Tusshar Kapoor and Amrita Arora Ladhak.
Says Malaika, "I have been learning yoga for some time. Kareena and Amu (Amrita Arora) introduced me to it. Payal Gidwani has been training me. I do yoga thrice a week at home with Payal's girl, alternating it between gym and pilates. Now, I really look forward to my sessions with Kareena and Amu. We are yoga junkies."
While Malaika has been introduced to asanas by Kareena, Malaika's husband Arbaaz has been a 'yoga junkie' for many years.
"Arbaaz is into rituals and holistic healing like yoga and vipassana but stopped completely for more than a year. Once he became a producer with Dabangg, he got caught up in pre and post-production work and stopped doing it completely. I have been asking him to start doing it again."
Besides doing yoga thrice a week for an hour, Malaika also works out thrice a week. "I am mostly into weight-training with my trainer when at the gym."
The yummy mummy is planning to bring out a book on healthy food habits and workouts. "I love talking about healthy food, home-made remedies and giving health tips. So yes, I have been thinking about writing a book on how to have a sexy body without starving yourself."
