On her Instagram post, she shared, "Despite my neck injury, I wanted to do everything myself, and my Yoga practice helped me to achieve it to a great extent.

These are a part of the challenges that come along with the profession I love so much! ❤️ And I will do it again and again!."

Yami Gautam's spider walk clipping from Bhoot Police made us recall of he spider walk from the Exorcist. It is still believed to be one of the scariest scenes from any horror film.
The much talked about scene from the horror film was originally cut because the firector thought it was too much of an effect for the audience. Though the scene was cut, it is still remembered all across as one of the most haunting moments of a horror film.
Spider Walk In Yoga
Spider walk or crawl is a common Yoga practice and usually done to boost heart rate and strengthen the muscles. If done correctly, the spider walk is believed to have many benefits including strengthening of the lower part of the body - calves, glutes. Spider walk can also boost the core and strengthen it. The spider walk is usually done as a warm up exercise or a cardio workout.
However, what Yami Gautam did for Bhoot Police wasn't the regular spider crawl. It was done upside down just like the famous spider walk from The Exorcist.
