Actress Andie MacDowell: Yoga is My Sanctuary, It’s Helped Everything

in Celebriyogis

“Yoga’s helped everything. It’s helped my outlook, how I interact with people, it’s made me more conscious, it’s helped me be able to focus, make better decisions, think on my feet. I don’t know what I’d do without it. It’s my sanctuary.” ‘Groundhog Day’ actress, Andie MacDowell tells Yoga Magazine how she yogas, rinses and repeats. Every. Day.

Andie started the practice 25 years ago during pregnancy and stuck with it, diving deeper to study the ancient texts and ayurveda – not a particularly frequent thing heard from our beloved body-conscious (likely insured) celebriyogi crowd.

“I’ve also been practising Ayurvedic medicine and I’ve read the Bhagavad Gita and Rumi and these are very important.”

“I will do simple cleanses and have a day where I’m quiet and don’t talk,” she added.

“I need to have this experience, especially after work has been really intense.”

Or repetitive – “Okay, campers, rise and shine”. We’ve all been there!

We certainly love all our celebriyogis, bless their hearts, but something tells us if we were to have a yogi tea party, Andie would be high on the guestlist, just after Antonio Banderas. Extra points for bringing Bill Murray.
