Jennifer Aniston is without a doubt one of our favorite celebrities. In her recent interview with Self magazine (Jennifer Aniston’s mind-body makeover), she has revealed how thanks to yoga, she stays in shape.
Jennifer Aniston’s diet:
It is known that Aniston favors the Zone and the South Beach diet principles. In this interview, however, she did not talk about her diet. Self only commented that she is not into “some rigid detox diet in which only brown foods are permitted.”
Jennifer Aniston’s workout:
“Aniston, 37, never considered herself a yoga type. “I went to class years ago, and I remember thinking, It’s really crowded, really hot, really sweaty, and I can have a better workout if I run and a better meditation if I sit quietly by myself.”
She passed her Rachel Green years working out on the treadmill, elliptical trainer and StairMaster. “I was disconnected from my body,” Aniston says, in retrospect. “I was just getting my exercise out of the way.”
Then, in February 2005, a month after Aniston’s marriage ended, she turned to [Mandy] Ingber, 38, who is one the Hollywood’s most sought-after trainers. (Her client roster includes Brooke Shields and Helen Hunt.)”
Ingber was not convinced that Jennifer Aniston would stick with her yoga workout. “What sold her was that she was really sore the next day,” Ingber says. Aniston agrees. “I was like, â€˜My butt! I can’t sit. This has got to be good for me.”
[...] My legs got leaner. My arms got strong. I’ve maybe even grown half an inch from aligning my spine. But that’s all just cherry on top,” she explains. The real strength gains have been of the inner variety: Aniston says she’s fitter emotionally.
[...] When you’re holding a pose, you learn to be patient with yourself, she says. “You’ll get there, and if you fall out of it, it’s OK. It’s not a contest. It’s not a race. It’s just life.”” [image source]
