From Miley Cyrus to Woody Harrelson, yoga has found its niche with Hollywood celebrities! Read below about how the practice of yoga has impacted the lives of some of our favorite celebs:
1. Russell Brand
Celeb Yoga Quote: “One of the great sadnesses of modern life, because of our disenfranchisement and disillusionment with religion, is that we don’t have access to these ideas. Yoga and meditation, for me, is a way of, in this secular world, accessing very very beautiful principles that would perhaps make us happier, at a time when people feel disillusioned with the economy, concerned about the ecology, worried with politicians, and don’t trust what they’re being told on television.”
Celeb Yoga Quote: “Yoga is a metaphor for life. You have to take it really slowly. You can’t rush. You can’t skip to 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.”
3. Britney Spears
If we weren’t already impressed with Britney Spears’ accomplishments in the world of classic pop hits, we’re even more impressed now! Between being a mother of two (to Jayden, 8, and Sean, 9) and performing at her residence show at the Axis in Las Vegas, the pop superstar also makes time for practicing some poses.
Celeb Yoga Quote: “You know I really love doing Yoga. And I have two separate trainers that come in, we play with it, I don’t like doing the same thing all the time, I like to change it up, so it’s like, it keeps it fun and interesting for me, so it’s not so boring. But my main ritual is Yoga. I do a lot of Yoga.”
4. Adam Levine
Celeb Yoga Quote: “Maybe more than anything else, yoga teaches you to be still and calm under challenging circumstances.”
5. Christy Turlington
6. Lea Michele
The Glee star always looks (and sounds!) amazing to us, and at least one of those two things is credited to a regular yoga practice! The star and songstress also hikes regularly and eats clean, healthy food to keep her mind and body in tip top shape.
Celeb Yoga Quote: “I do yoga every single day in my backyard and I go on a long hike every week.”
7. Woody Harrelson
Celeb Yoga Quote: “Yoga is the best thing for your sex life. It keeps you limber in all kinds of ways. It teaches you to love your body and your partner’s body. But more than anything, it keeps your mind liquid, and nothing’s sexier than that.”
8. Miley Cyrus
The former Hannah Montana star turned somewhat-scandalous and often scantily dressed singer does a mean Half Lord of the Fishes pose while wearing a sunny yoga outfit – and we can’t help but love her look!
Celeb Yoga Quote: “Life is about balance. #party #yoga #veggies #partyharder #moreyoga #moreveggies”
