While some practice yoga as a way to find a moment of tranquility in this fast-paced world, others attend as a means to achieving their very best body. Just ask Meghan Markle, who rolls her mat out on the regular for both reasons.
“Yoga is my thing,” the Suits star tells Best Health, explaining that her love for the meditative discipline began in her childhood.
“My mom is a yoga instructor, and I started doing mommy-and-me yoga with her when I was seven. I was very resistant as a kid, but she said, ‘Flower, you will find your practice – just give it time.’”
Nowadays, the actress mixes up her methods to ensure she’s never wary of the same routines.
“I change it up: I’ll do yoga a couple of times a week – hot yoga, especially. I love an intense vinyasa class – and even better if it’s blasting hip-hop and done in a dark room with candlelight. The best!”
Whether you’re looking to lose weight, build strength or simply find your inner peace, yoga will help you achieve all of this and so much more:
