Quote of the Day

When I was 25, I was in a show called 'Bajour,' and I was going to leave the show because I couldn't breathe. I couldn't sing, and I couldn't do the basic dance steps I had to do. Fortunately, two actors in the production - who were also yoga instructors - taught me some breathing exercises, and my asthma was cured that day.
I've always been into sports and yoga and running. I actually study a martial arts self-defense program called Krav Maga. I can't quite say it's easy, but it's fun for me and I love to do it.
I did kung fu up until two weeks before Benjamin was born, and yoga three days a week. I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds.
I've always kept fit but I've been doing gym and yoga and will be throwing my stilettoes away for a while!
Yoga is at the core of my health and wellness routine; even if it's only for 10 to 15 minutes I find it helps me to re-center and to focus as well as improve my overall core strength.
Yoga is a big part of my life now. There's not a day that goes by where I don't do an Asana and mediation practice.
I go on walks during lunch breaks and travel with a fold-up yoga mat. I also love reading by candlelight at night.
Oh gosh, I noticed dramatic changes in my body after I started doing yoga, but I also think you have to shake things up.
I mean the whole thing about meditation and yoga is about connecting to the higher part of yourself, and then seeing that every living thing is connected in some way.
Yoga is just good for you.
Every day I try to do breathing exercises, meditation, and yoga. These things sound awfully cliche, but they help me slow down and try to point to a truth.
I think yoga has given me better posture. People don't realise how strong it makes you. You have to use your body weight to hold yourself. As you get older, you're supposed to lift weights, but I find that kind of boring. Yoga is lifting my own body.
I do a lot of yoga. I practice yoga three or four times a week. It's an escape for me.
I train five days a week hard - but it is short and sharp - 30 to 40 minutes of functional and pretty dynamic body-strength circuits, then I do a good yoga session on the sixth day, then I rest.
I want to open my own yoga studio. Planning construction and looking at properties is fun.
I used to dance for seventeen years -classical ballet, which was very disciplined. I like yoga and Pilates, but I don't have the discipline to go to the gym.
Yoga is wonderful. It clears up most health problems. It also gives you an overview.
Savasana is the easiest and most important yoga move because it's so simple. Lying there is meditative.
Yoga changed my body 100 percent. It tones everything and leans you out. Dancer's pose is amazing. It works every muscle!
I began by doing physical yoga, initially just for the workout, as exercise. I would get peaceful and calm at the end of it, and I was curious about that.
I do yoga every morning, then I run for half an hour and take a sauna.
I'm a massive yoga head. Lots of yoga and lots of running. I do Bikram yoga. I adore it.
For some people, staying grounded means doing yoga. For others, it's spending time with family. Social media, too, can be a lifesaver.
My usual day is I get up around 11 o'clock and do yoga and then eat afterwards. Then I have sound check and play soccer and do running with the guys in the band after sound check, and then do the show and eat dinner after the show and usually get to bed around 3 o'clock by the time we get everybody on the bus and get rolling.
I relax, meditate and do 80 minutes of yoga every day.
