"Because of this feature, the practice of the two techniques are also employed as systems of physical rehabilitation. Finally, a benefit of both yoga and Pilates is the increased attainment of harmony and high levels of spiritual, mental and physical fitness." she once explained

In this picture, she writes, "Couldn’t leave the capital without visiting the historical #IndiaGate and standing on my head of course. India Gate is a memorial to 82,000 soldiers of the British Indian Army who died in the period 1914–21 in the First World War, and is counted among the largest war memorials in India."
Describing one of her days spent in Mussoorie, she says, "We hiked for about 1.5 hours up and down the #GarhwalRange watching the breathtaking flora and fauna around, all that to end up to the most beautiful breakfast by the stream of the mighty #KemptyFalls
