We’re proud of Britney Spears, we’ll go right ahead and say it. Baby girl has survived some rough patches and now she’s getting her yoga on. We wish we could say the same for all the troubled celebs out there. *cough*Lohan*cough*Bynes*cough* sigh.
“I love my yoga,” the pop star told to Ryan Seacrest earlier this week on his radio show On Air With Ryan Seacrest.
Spears is rumored to be gearing up for a big Vegas residency, but she couldn’t confirm anything yet and told Ryan that regardless, yoga has become regular part of her body and mind ritual. ”I’m doing a lot of yoga right now. It’s like my go-to between all anxiety and everything,” she said.
We think that’s awesome and everything.
The 31-year-old momma of two boys was on the cover of Shape magazine this month and demonstrated one of her typical mini yoga sequences in the issue. It’s Shape magazine, so it’s mostly about, well, being “in shape.” Some form critiques aside, we give her props.
But like anything with Britney, it wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies when she first started the practice. Sometimes life is a rocky road of head shaving freakouts and boring yoga classes. But like anything with Britney, she’s come back stronger.
“The first time I did yoga I didn’t like it at all,” Brit brit said and proceeded to give the yog-reluctant Ryan a few tips.
“I think the key is finding a good teacher, someone you kind of connect with and if you do find that person then it doesn’t feel like you’re bored or impatient because I’ve been in tons of classes where I’m so over it and I can’t deal and want it to end, but I think if you find the right instructor, it does wonders for your body.”
“You need the right teacher and take baby steps.”
Sister, we’ve been there. And we’re glad you stuck with it.
