Even in the most stressful situations, Yoga clears the mind of cluttered thoughts and leaves you physically and mentally refreshed. This is why many of our favourite celebrities practice Yoga. Here are a few of our favourite ladies.
Jennifer has been practicing Yoga for some time and credits her improved posture, strong arms and longer limbs to her 2 hour a day Yoga classes. In the stressful build up to her much anticipated wedding to Justin Theroux she says "Yoga kinda helps you prepare for everything. Honestly, it's like meditation. It just allows anything that is coming at you throughout the day to be kind of doable".
Gisele practiced Yoga and meditation throughout her pregnancy which she says resulted in a very tranquil birth. She also used Yoga to lose her baby weight.
Says she does "a ton of Yoga" and doesn't do anything by half, this includes her exercise regime. She practices Bikram Yoga which is a hard 90 minute session in a hot, humid room where she works through the 26 poses and 2 breathing exercises.
Another celebrity who likes to work out to extremes is Madonna. She has said she was once addicted to Yoga, practicing seven days a week. She says "Yoga is a metaphor for life. You have to take it really slowly. You can’t rush. You can’t skip the next position. You find yourself in very humiliating situations, but you can’t judge yourself. You just have to breathe, and let go. It is a workout for your mind, your body and your soul"
Reese says she's hooked on YogaHop which is high-energy and fun. It features hip-hop, rock and pop and all the energy of a dance party. The result is an East meets West Yoga style that's both athletic and spiritually soothing.
