After she posted the routine, Janhvi took to the comments section and asked, “Can I do this?” Then, Namrata replied, “Janhvi Kapoor yes! You can…just hands down by your side, not overhead.”
The video shows Namrata beginning the training by doing the Roll Over exercise by reaching her leg up and over her head, hands pressed tightly on the stability chair, and bringing the legs down parallel to the ground, spread apart. She followed the Roll Over by doing the Teaser exercise. Here, Namrata folded the knees near her chest, brought her body forward at a 45-degree angle, and palms near the ankles. Then, formed a V with her body and relaxed back on the yoga mat.

Roll Over Exercise Benefits:
Roll Over exercise gives a good stretch to the back and hamstrings, works hard on the abdominal muscles, and improves spine flexibility. It also calms the nervous system and boosts a good sleeping pattern.
Teaser Exercise Benefits:
Teaser exercise is great for balance, flexibility and spinal mobility because it incorporates the entire core and back to keep the body upright in a V position. It is especially effective for targeting the external obliques, rectus abdominis and hip flexors.
