A lot has changed since Indra Devi, a famous yoga teacher, opened the first yoga studio in Hollywood back in 1949…
and made yoga popular with famous actresses including Greta Garbo. Nowadays around 20% of the population of the Pacific states* are practicing yoga, with many other American states not lagging far behind. And more and more celebrities start frequenting yoga studios each year.
Julia has a lot in common with here character in Eat, Pray, Love. Visiting India was a transformative experience for her which sparked her interest in yoga and Hinduism. Julia Roberts enjoys both physical and mental benefits of yoga. During her Lancôme interview, she said that studying yoga is what helps her find peace. And in her interview to Calzedonia, she credited her beautiful legs to regular yoga practice. Yoga helps the famous actress to enjoy life and be in harmony with herself: in an industry where plastic surgeries have become common practice, Julia prefers to age naturally and gracefully.
Watching her father fighting cancer got her looking for ways to live a longer and healthier life. No wonder many of us know her as a healthy lifestyle ambassador. Gwyneth Paltrow started doing yoga more than 20 years ago when it hadn’t been all that hype around the yoga industry. So yoga has long become a big part of her life. She even revealed in one of the interviews that she wakes up around 4:30 a.m. to have time for her daily yoga practice.
Seeing how amazing she looks in her fifties you feel like adopting some of Julianne’s healthy habits. We can reveal you at least one: the famous actress is a fan of Ashtanga yoga and as she told Health in one of the interviews, she prefers yoga to “the agony of the gym”. Apparently, active workouts like spinning leave her overwhelmed rather than energized. And many of us can relate, right? Julianne Moore practices Ashtanga yoga about 3 times a week. By the way, just like Julia Roberts she is against plastic surgery and prefers to age in a natural way.
