It seems like celebrities can get anything: private jets, yachts, personal fitness instructors. And more and more often we hear that this or that celebrity does yoga. Hatha yoga is one of the types of yoga picked by the Hollywood inhabitants.
So what are the benefits they find in doing various asanas that are a part of Hatha yoga workout. Celebrities, whether they are in the film industry, music industry, or attached with politics or sports, have very demanding and busy schedules. It's hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle and look after your body if your working day finishes early in the morning and the new one starts 6 hours later. It is here that these yoga routines come into play.
Apart from playing a big role in promoting general wellbeing and health, the best thing about this routine is its adaptability. Hatha yoga workout can be tweaked slightly to meet specific needs and requirements and hence, can be done to target specific areas of the body or for overcoming certain mind-related issues.
Versatility of Hatha yoga is incredible – there are more than 200 postures to choose from, so there's surely something for everyone in it.
Another advantage is the mild effect of hatha yoga routines. They don't stress the muscles and are not risky in terms of injuries. Obviously, no celebrity with a busy lifestyle wants to be injured.
Hatha yoga workout can be done anywhere. Once it has been learned, doing it on your own will not be a big problem. Most asanas can even be self-taught and all that's required is a CD with the right kind of instructions. Therefore, there's no need to make an appointment with an instructor every time a person needs to practice yoga. With a vast array of poses to choose from, one can pick the asanas that are specifically in line with their preferences.
Especially popular among the celebrities are: twisting yoga, gentle poses, supine poses, yoga for back, restorative poses, poses for legs and glutes, just to name a few.
