These days, it seems that famous people have a lot on their plate and many might need some form of mild therapy. And, especially if you’re a celebrity, the first thing that pops into mind when thinking about combined mental and physical therapy is yoga! A host of celebrities, from former supermodel Gisele Bündchen to pop queen Britney Spears, have become “gurus,” so to say.
Want to learn from your favorite celebrity yoga guru? Here’s a look at the craziest poses some star yoga enthusiasts have mastered.
The 33yearold auto racing driver is the most successful woman in American open-wheel racing, and this obviously does not come easy. Danica Patrick is a yoga freak and so conscious about her diet that you might work up a sweat just by looking at her Instagram page. Patrick regularly posts photos of her doing insane poses, but the best image to date just might be the one where she’s doing a combination of a half handstand and Indian style of sitting, midair! What’s more, she captioned the image, “Missed my yoga last week. I was busy getting my pump on at the gym. Must. Get. More. Flexible!” Goals, anyone?
Although Jessica Alba has a busy, busy routine—what with The Honest Company, two children, and acting gigs—she makes it a point to get some yoga in every so often. Frequently seen posing with Omar Lopez, her teacher, the actress posts quite a few photos showing off her toned body. Check out Alba’s latest image, where she can be seen striking a half bow and arrow sort of pose, looking fresh-faced and smiling into the camera.
Bündchen is 35, a former supermodel, and married to Tom Brady, with two children. And while most people may have the perception that she was born blessed with her gorgeous body, she does in fact work to keep it up. Bündchen does yoga more often than not. Her young daughter, Vivian Lake, almost three, has also accompanied her mother to her yoga sessions. In an Instagram post, she can be seen stretching with her daughter doing the same pose beneath her!
Hilaria Baldwin gained fame mainly due to getting hitched to Hollywood superstar Alec Baldwin. Since then, the Spanish beauty has established herself as one of the media’s favorite subjects. She is a yoga enthusiast; in fact, she does it first thing every day. Recently, Baldwin posted a photo of herself doing a handstand yoga position, with the comment, “They asked me how I start my day…” The mother of two is so hooked on yoga that she even got her husband to try it out more than once.
Britney Spears is probably one of the most famous household names in America. She began her career at only 18, and has been the queen of pop ever since. Even after having two children, she keeps fit by adjusting her yoga routine to fit her hectic schedule. She once posted a crazy photo of her doing a handstand in her hotel room. Given that Spears has been in Vegas for her residency show since 2013, most of her sessions might actually have been in hotel rooms, too!
