Shilpa Shetty has won the whole of Europe through her fitness DVD 'Shilpa's Yoga' as it has topped the charts, giving tough competition to other recently released workout videos of fitness specialists Davina McCall, Samanda, Erin Boag, Karen Hardy, Rebecca Wheatley, Nell McAndrew, Fleur Murray, Lilia Kopylova, Gaynor Faye and Danielle Llyod, in the European market. There has been a craze all over the world and in Europe in particular to maintain a slim waist without dieting. Shilpa's yoga secrets seem to be doing wonder by helping achieve that. Shilpa's publicist Dale Bhagwagar has announced it before the media. "No doubt the DVD is selling like cakes". In 'Shilpa's Yoga', the actress reveals her fitness secrets to create a lean and toned body while retaining all the feminine curves. Outlining the various benefits of yoga, the DVD demonstrates specific sequences to enhance concentration, agility and flexibility. Shilpa has been practicing yoga for years and has obtained a special training from her gurus - Shiv Kumar Mishra and Vinayak Dixit - before demonstrating them to the world. Her video showcases the right techniques of doing ashtanga yoga including breathing techniques. The DVD has been shot at the backwaters in Kerala under the direction of Manish Jha (of the critically-acclaimed feature films 'Matrabhoomi' and 'Anwar' fame). The package also contains a free lounge music CD with compositions by Pankaj Awasthi to help unwind and relax after practicing the yoga techniques.
