Celebrities that you Didn’t Know Practice Yoga.

Celebrities are probably the most beautiful and the most good-looking people in the world. It goes with the job that they have to be fit and look hot. How else are you going to attract other people except with your bod? But, looking good is not a God-given gift for many of them. In order to look good you have to work for it. Many celebrities hit the gym regularly or use different diets to get fit. But there are a lot of them that swear by yoga and have it to thank for their appearance.

According to almost 80% percent of actors and actresses do yoga! If you think that this number sounds too high, it actually isn’t. It is a reality and many people do yoga to get spiritually balanced and physically fit. Here are a number of celebrities that you didn’t know are yoga buffs and who practice it on a regular basis.

Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey is probably one of the hottest celebrities in the world. His early roles where he appeared in a bunch of rom-coms and teen movies can absolutely vouch for that.

Matthew is a regular yoga buff and has said numerous times how he does it almost every day. If you happen to see Matthew McConaughey on beach, you will probably see him doing yoga poses before going for a swim.

Jennifer Aniston

The former “Friends” star, Jennifer Aniston, has been voted numerous times as one of the most beautiful celebreites in the world. Jennifer is currently 50 years old and doesn’t look a day over 20!

Stress gives you wrinkles and I don’t see so many wrinkles on Jennifer’s face!

Hanks says that it is the greatest thing that you can ever do and is what helps him stay healthy and spry.

Colin Farrell

It might be hard to picture the Irish stud, Colin Farrell, on a yogi math, but that is exactly what he does for his fitness. Colin has been an A-list celebrity for years now and has been voted numerous times as one of the sexiest actors in the world. But we have only recently found out that what keeps him so fit and young is yoga. Imagine Colin Farrell shirtless with a yoga math under his arm getting ready for practice.


Madonna is considered as a cultural icon of the pop industry. She achieved so much already in her life and is not only a top singer but a great actress as well. As part of her daily routine she does all kinds of interesting stuff. One of them is also yoga.

The most interesting ones are the ones in a bikini on a beach.

Robert Downey Jr.
