For more: Who Cares if Adam Levine Does Yoga?

Below interview of Adam Levine via Blisstree, Yogadork and, originally, Women’s Health:

Did it change how you work out?
I had been lifting weights for years. After our first yoga session, I vowed never to lift another weight again.

Do you believe in the mind-body connection?
I was skeptical, to say the least. I was wary of the cliche´s associated with yoga: spirituality used as a marketing tool or Eastern philosophy sold at Starbucks to disenchanted lawyers and accountants looking for meaning. What I soon realized is that yoga welcomes everyone—that’s extremely appealing.

How do you maintain your practice on tour?
Being a traveler, yoga is by far the most convenient way to exercise while I’m on the road. You don’t need anything but a few feet of space and a mat. And I can always find at least an hour a day to practice. 

(Levine made videos with his teacher to take on the road with him.)

What is your advice to people who think they are too inflexible to do yoga?
Start simple. Yoga will drastically improve you in every way imaginable. But let’s face it, I only practice yoga because the classes are always packed with beautiful women. (I am totally kidding.)

    "guest" is crazy!!! THANK YOU…there is usually very little eye candy for the chickas 🙂 Love what he has to say about yoga…might have to actually check out the music…

  4. kelly says:

    love the pictures but it seems like they could have spent a little more time photo-shopping out the girlfriend..her hands are good but her body seems to be missing pieces lol like the second pic you can see half her hip like if she was peaking from behind him but then the rest of her is missing

  5. Guest says:

    He'd be way sexier without all those tatoos.

    • Camren Von Davis says:

      disagree. he's mad sexy BECAUSE of them

    • Klaudia says:

      …Funny I was just thinking: So many people with tattoos that are so cheap and mainstream, Adams are mos definetely an expression of his identity and are a beautiful contrast to his insight…. But I respect your dislike for tattoos 😉 . I love them when are artistic unique and Adam's are definetely part of his beauty. imho

  6. Kim Stetz says:

    anyone know the sanskrit on his chest?

    • dan says:

      there is a double-danda after it, which is used to mark the end of a verse or paragraph (a single is used for the end of a line or sentence), which is also to say I don’t know why it’s there

    • tapas says:

      tapas (Sanskrit: "Warmth, heat,") — hence psychic energy, spiritual fervor or ardor . 1) Purificatory spiritual disciplines, severe austerity, penance and sacrifice

    • Richa says:

      Tapas (tapas, Sanskrit: तपस्) means deep meditation, effort to achieve self-realization.

      It is derived from the word tap (Sanskrit: तप् or ताप) which depending on context means “heat” from fire or weather, or blaze, burn, shine, penance, pain, suffering, mortification.

  7. txgirl says:

    Um he must be tiny if just her one hand covers it all.

    • Frank Torchio says:

      Nothing wrong with a small penis. A woman I know once told me that guys with big dicks are just big dicks. Sexual satisfaction is not contingent on the size of a man's penis.

      • Kim Mann says:

        I'm a woman and size does matter!! But then … I suppose if his sole purpose is to pleasure himself, then it doesn't matter.

    love the man, love his music, the tats are sexy and the gf is one lucky chica!

  14. Dawn says:

    Unfortunately, his teacher needs to give him better alignment cues. His teacher was not helping him at all and it is clear that he needs more instruction and verbal and physical adjustments. I was surprised and disappointed at the quality of that instruction.

    • guest says:

      me too! warrior was all wrong….

    • Devon says:

      agreed. her first instruction of push shoulders down is completely out of alignment and will hurt him in the longrun.

    • Kathy says:

      Yep. No alignment instruction. Hand placement is so important in dog pose, The index finger side of his hand was lifted off the mat. His hips were not squared to front of mat for warrior I. His elbows were not positioned over wrists for chaturanga. I kept wanting to step in and give him alignment cues. Poor Adam. His practice would benefit so much with more thorough instruction.

  15. Helen Paul-Smith says:

    He is certainly bringing attention to something? Pehaps the fact that we are an over sexed culture.

    Do you think the average woman thinks tatts like these are sexy or is it just the younger generation of women? Age 45

    • yogasamurai says:

      Guy needs a shower and a shave – and what about a real job? It would build up his character – and core strength.

    • yoga bear says:

      depends on the lady,don't you think?

    • Denise says:

      I think it's generational. I am 49 and I think tatts are hideous and appalling, no matter what the design or subject matter. But most twenty-somethings I know seem to take them for granted, like they're as normal and necessary as makeup or pierced ears.

      • Sam says:

        Makeup and pierced ears are abnormal and in no way necessary. We are not born with makeup on, and we do not need it in order to survive. I am twenty and I do not, nor ever will, wear makeup and I am surviving just fine. Many would argue that not wearing makeup is actually better for your skin and body in the long run. Makeup and piercings fall under the same category as tattoos: body modification.

    • Paula says:

      I'm 41,4 kids, corporate management job, 4 kids, and find him to be incredibly sexy! Love the tattoos :).

    I cannot help but objectify him… #delicious

  21. yogasamurai says:

    Wow, really impressed with the "interiority" this guy displays. Really deep stuff. Is he stoned, or just depressed? The fact is, even his asanas are lame. He's certainly on par with the Queen of Introspective Awareness, Kathryn Budig. Thankfully, though. he skipped the balloons. He might have floated away?

    • Klaudia says:

      One of the things I learned to admire the most from the samurai culture, is the capacity to look within and observe our thoughts before coming to a sudden judgement. Even if his , mine or any one's asanas are LAME, there is Yoga being done, which is such of a huge step into external and internal transformation. When I noticed some corrections to be done in his poses, the only thought that came to me was: How great is to see another addition to the yoga world. I bet your asanas were lame at some point 😉 .

  22. I am now not sure where you’re getting your information, but good topic. I needs to spend a while studying more or figuring out more. Thank you for wonderful info I was looking for this info for my mission.

  23. Travis Michitsch says:

    Sometimes I contemplate if folks truly take time to write something original, or are they only just dishing out words to fill a site. This surely doesn’t fit that mold. Thank you for taking the time to write with awareness. Now And Then I look at a page and question whether they even proofread it.Fantastic work with this article.

    • klaudia says:

      You sound like a teenage girl talking in the bathroom about another girl they are jealous of laughing at it ….. you are in a site, that share so mucn insight, you might want to work on that “Your actions speak so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” quote by Ralph W. Emerson.

  30. Hands:Adam’s girlfriend, model and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue star Anne Vyalitsyna:

  31. klaudia says:

    LOL right on Lasa…..and even if he was an eunuch, there is much more to passion and sexual intimacy than a prominent breast , buttocks or penis. the size is fun when we use just lust as receptor. But when we use all our senses and imagination, little is needed for sexual ecstasy.

    This video is a little to explicit!

  35. janejenilee says:

    YAAAAAAAAAY Thank you 😉

  36. brumagnes says:

    we can say that it's yoga supra sexy…for this girl in the car.

  37. SeanW says:

    I was under the mistaken impression that yoga allowed for mistakes. Being someone who is interested in yoga and looking for an introduction to it that suits my schedule and desire for non-judgmental instruction — I can see, based on the comments here, that if you engage in yoga you are opening yourself up to a lot of criticism (not to mention having your instructor criticized as well) of technique, personal appearance, and method.

    Unrealistic as it may seem I'm hoping to find a discipline that is more supportive and less judgmental.

    But thanks for the heads up with this website. Clearly the social component is full of critics just like in every other religion.

    • Lisa says:

      Don't let it turn you off. Yoga can be really be great and it is really good for the body and mind. 🙂

    • erikbukos says:

      Sean, check out meetup<dot>com look for some yoga in the park or beach. Try some promo offers at some studios. You'll will find a great class if you look around and it will change your life if you work at it. Honestly, this article deserves the negativity because it's just a piece of sad click-bait. Also, if you, Adam Levine, want people to watch you on video… should really set a good example of a yoga practice. Some of these comments are warranted.

  38. Micky says:

    Its really amazing article great work in this blog.
    Thanks for the posting.

  39. Monte Gale says:

    Unique handmade wedding gowns seems to me pretty stunning and I'm very much impressed to see all of the above Eco-friendly wedding dress indeed!

  40. Most yoga texts advise that one should preserve the life force of semen. This article does nothing but use sex appeal to drive traffice to EJ's sites for Search Engine Optimization. This website is dieing a slow death. Just let the suffering end.

  41. Rogelio Nunez says:

    He must be using his rt. hand too much, for masturbation, because he cant staighten the rt arm completely in down dog….

  42. OMG.. what a look he has ! He is awesome !

  43. Kitty says:

    Interesting! You can show a vagina but not a penis!

  44. Janice says:

    what a fucking bunch of bullshit. it was a good cause until i viewed this. what are u thinking?

  45. Jessica says:

    Kudos to Adam for: (1) bringing more mainstream attention to the multitudinous health benefits of yoga (2) giving guys masculine 'permission' to embrace it (3) making it rockstar-cool and sexy (I mean of course it already was – but who can deny how great he looks! 🙂 I think these are things that we can all celebrate.

    Yes, these kinds of messages are still needed! I just had a doctor tell me that yoga was 'just for stretching' and was no good to increase bone density (aka not load bearing). Yikes!

  46. Guest says:

    Tiny little man with a nasally singing voice. I liked him better as Prince.

  47. erikbukos says:

    I'm glad yoga has kept his ego in control.
