Yoga is the secret of Madonna’s health
Fans of Madonna may have often wondered how the 45 year old mom of two, manages to stay in shape and flaunt that superbly splendid body of hers.
According to the BBC, the “Frozen” star has a fitness level that would put teenagers to shame. And the secret of success is her passion for Yoga and a commitment to a strict diet and excercise regime.
Madonna is a fan of Ashtanga yoga, which is a more vigorous form of exercise and more physically demanding.
“The effects of yoga are gradual and long-lasting“, said Emma Evans, from the British Wheel of Yoga – the governing body for yoga in Great Britain.
“What is wonderful about Madonna is that she inspires people to practise yoga and if someone is drawn to practise yoga, that can only be a good thing,” she says.
Leicester chiropractor Tim Hutchful says that suppleness and flexibility are within the grasp of the average couch potato by making a few lifestyle changes and understanding how our bodies work.
And the younger you start, the better your chances of lasting results.
Hutchful was quoted as saying, “Pilates and yoga are great for flexibility and I advise patients to take up this type of exercise.”
Yoga and Pilates tend to exercise, strengthen and lengthen muscles without adding bulk.
