Celebrity foodie Nigella Lawson is joining the slow yoga revolution. We’ve heard of the slow food movement, but food experts joining slow yoga is a whole new twist on the familiar recipe.
Lawson talks about her newfound yoga practice in the November issue of Good Housekeeping (UK). Her recent weight increase and subsequent weight loss was one of the target subjects of the interview, but Lawson just brushed it off as a part of living life.
“It’s certainly true my weight went up – that happens in life sometimes. I have never been on a diet to try to lose weight. I feel like I haven’t lost weight, but I’m possibly in better shape. I am doing a rather slow form of yoga now called Iyengar,” she told the magazine.
“As you get on in life, you value feeling well as opposed to looking well. Yoga certainly makes you feel great, and you want to carry on feeling great. I just do a bit in a very slow way. Sometimes, lying down!”
We hear you, Nigella! And restorative is pretty awesome (it may actually assist in weight loss, too). We don’t know for sure what led to her weight loss, but that isn’t the important part, anyway. She’s feeling happy, she’s feeling good, and she’s feeling in the now.
“I’m right here, right now. That is a great place to be. I’ve always thought that, when you cook, you have to be in the present. And that’s really how you have to live in your life. With my family history, I never want to plan for the future. You don’t know what the future holds,” she said.
“And anyway, the future never really exists. It’s just a series of nows.”
