Fitness is one of the most vital elements of show business today, and actors have to sweat it out in the gym to get into perfect shape. Over the years, some of the celebrities have reaped the benefits of ancient Indian practice of yoga and they've managed to look as bright as a button. 

International Yoga Day is a tremendous opportunity for the stars to remind their fans just how yoga can help shape your body and soul. Here’s a look at some yoga day gyaan shared by celebrities today. 

1. Mr & Mrs Singh Grover

She’s now added the Singh Grover to her name but Bipasha Basu hasn’t added an extra pound post her marriage. A fitness freak to the core, Bipasha Basu has been promoting fitness videos. Hubby Karan Singh Grover has always sported 6-pack abs and now he’s learning yoga from his wife too. The duo, who are performing on International Yoga Day at an event in Bengaluru, posted a picture of this unique aasan (pose) on twitter. 

Well, looks like the honeymoon period is still not over for the super fit couple. 

Meanwhile, here’s Basu doing yoga at the event in Benguluru.

2. Alia Bhatt goes down the barrel

Well, we’re not sure whether this exercise is part of yoga, but Ali Bhatt couldn’t have chosen a better day post this video on Instagram. Seen here is the actor balancing on the stepbarrel and reformer. And she’s underlined its core benefits too. 

Miss Bhatt is a regular at yoga too as seen from this archive picture.
