We would all love to have Jennifer Aniston’s toned and lean body, she isn’t waif thin and looks feminine but strong. Jen has revealed her top tips for staying fit and looking good – yoga. She credits her yoga trainer, Mandy Ingber, with incorporating yoga into her fitness regime and keeping her looking strong and feeling good inside and out. Last week Jen received top honors getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the first Friends star to get one. Jen is doing well at the moment, and despite ongoing silly rumors (first being pregnant, then wanting a child, then fighting again with Angelina) Jennifer seems content and strong at the moment. I’m sure this can be credited to her happy relationship with Justin Theroux; and maybe also to yoga? Read Jen’s tips for getting into shape and staying happy and well…
Jen’s yoga teacher says, “the key to a killer body starts with loving the body you already have and taking 5-15 minutes each day to just sit and breathe. She adds eating organic fresh fruits and veggies, eliminating sugar and drinking half of your body weight in ounces (ie: 120 lbs = 60 oz.) is essential to good health”.
Jen certainly has a killer body, and it is great to see her approach to fitness and well-being starts and ends with a holistic approach to mind and body. I think it is fabulous to see her teacher’s emphasis on “sitting and breathing” and “loving the body you already have.” It is always a good reminder to hear the importance of eating lots of fresh fruit and veggies and drinking tons of water.
I know a lot of readers get upset at posts about body image, and I agree that there are far too many images in the media perpetuating the perceived value of being thin, which is not only unrealistic but dangerous. This, however, I think is a good reminder of the importance of health and well-being, which is something that is holistically mind and body. Eating well, taking care of ourselves, and spending a few minutes each day just to breath I think are fabulous reminders for all of us. When we feel good, we look good so I think Jen’s yogi approach is spot on..
