Yoga is so healthy. It combines the mental, physical and spiritual into a symbiotic blend of wellness. With that said, I like watching beautiful women commit to yoga a heck of a lot more than I like doing it. But yoga is the kind of healthy activity that many avid work-out regulars swear by. The mental and physical benefits of yoga are numerous. For those who haven't seen too much of yoga, the concentration level involved is key. Normally, rooms are filled with near silence or beautiful music. The necessary level of concentration is so participants can cleanse both their bodies and their minds as they perform their routine. Due to the physical nature of the moves, the concentration requirements are quite high; thus, the soft sweet musical interludes involved.
The effects of yoga in terms of health and on your body are visible on the participants themselves. Take a gander at anyone who partakes in yoga on a regular basis. They are normally fit and look extremely healthy; and by healthy, I mean hot and fit. Yoga emerged out of Ancient India and has since grown in popularity. The exercise has become a favorite of the wealthy and many in the entertainment industry. If you ever catch a glimpse at someone who does yoga on a regular basis, you will definitely know why it is so effective. And when celebrities do yoga, they love to post pictures of themselves looking hot and healthy. Whether they are Internet sensations, A-list actresses, models, singers or incredible dancers, yoga is a big part of these beautiful women's lives. These are 15 Celebrities Looking Hot Doing Yoga in 2016.
15 Alessandra Ambrosio
Miss Alessandra Corine Maria Ambrosio was born in April 1981 in Brazil. She is known for being smoking hot, modeling for Victoria's Secret and being the first spokesmodel for their PINK line. This Brazilian beauty isn't just all looks either. She serves as an ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. She was also named by Forbes in 2012 as number six of the highest-paid models, earning over $6 million in just one year. In 2007 she was named by People's magazine as one of the "100 Most Beautiful People in the World". Ambrosio has also made many TV cameos including but not limited to Project Runway, The Tyra Banks Show and How I Met your Mother. Alessandra is now engaged and has 2 children. She bounced back quickly from having her first baby and was back on the catwalk just 3 months after giving birth. She is an avid yoga practitioner as you can tell by her stellar body and exceptional form.
14 Miley Cyrus
Oh, Miley, how she came in like a wrecking ball. Born Destiny Hope Cyrus in Tennessee in 1992, Miss Cyrus changed her name to Miley Ray. Known for her Disney show called Hannah Montana, this wild child quickly transformed into something that would shock us all. Cyrus was named number seventeen on Forbes' list of the most powerful celebrities in 2014. She is also the founder of the Happy Hippie Foundation which is an organization hellbent on fighting injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations. At the age of seventeen she was named number nineteen on the "Top 20 World's Richest Female Singer of all time." In 2008, she was ranked number thirty-five on Forbes' Celebrity list earning a whopping $25 million in that year alone. Cyrus is a loud and proud pot smoker, and even appeared on stage at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards smoking a joint. Her other main hobby is practicing yoga. She often displays her poses on her Instagram page. I really don't know how she can twist her body in those ways!
13 Kate Beckinsale
Certainly, it's an interesting point of view. The picture literally captures Kate Beckinsale mid-yoga move and we get an excellent glimpse of her rear. Beckinsale is a British actress who is best known for her role in the Underworld series. What is far more interesting is how Beckinsale got involved in the making of this epic dark series and stole the heart of her director, Len Wiseman. Wiseman was living in the San Fernando Valley cooking up the next great idea for the Underworld series. He was given his first director's chair and upon meeting up with Beckinsale, Wiseman left his childhood sweetheart wife and had an affair with Beckinsale and ultimately got married. Now, they are divorced. At least she is awesome at yoga.
12 Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga was born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta in March 1986. She is a singer, songwriter, actress and record producer. Gaga started playing the piano at the age of 4 and wrote her first ballad at the age of 13. Along with her many music hits, this beauty has appeared on the season 5 of American Horror Story and won a Golden Globe for best actress. In 2015 she won the "Woman of the Year Award" from Billboard. She even is getting the privilege of singing the national anthem at Super Bowl 50. Lady Gaga is also known for her unique costume choices, like wearing a dress made of raw beef to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. "Mother Monster," as her fans like to refer her as, likes to stay in shape by doing yoga. She is seen in a few pictures doing yoga in sexy leopard underwear.
11 Lisa Opie
Lisa Opie loves showing off her well-toned body, stretching it into amazing positions. This beauty queen and TV personality was born on May 1991 in Colorado. Opie attended Virginia Commonwealth University where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Minor in History. She's also the creator of the luxury swimwear brand Vizcaya Swimwear. The sexy bombshell was Miss Virgin Islands 2013 and placed fourth runner up at Miss United States 2012. Opie was also crowned Miss Nationwide in 2014. All of these accolades are not surprising being that Opie is insanely hot. Her body is flawless as she spends hours upon hours staying amazingly fit. Watching Opie do yoga is worthy of its own reality television special.
10 Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence is best known for her role in the Hunger Games movie series. Lawrence blew up after the first movie and has since become one of Hollywood's most bankable female stars. Her leading lady status is matched by her beautiful figure and amazing wit. Lawrence is a late night television darling who often displays her personality in real life as well as her personable roles on screen. Lawrence is beloved because of her Hunger Games role and she is seen as a pretty girl, but her body is truly underrated. Lawrence spends many hours exercising. It is yoga in particular that truly helps her maintain her amazing looks. Lawrence seems like a pretty awesome girl to hang out with.
9 Jordan Carver
Jordan Carver is a brunette model from Germany who clearly draws a crowd when she does yoga. Carver launched her own brand when she hit the web with her own modeling site. She caught the eye of talent scouts and photographers alike. She began modeling for magazine publications and her publicity began to soar. Of course, the attention she grabbed was largely in part due to her amazing breasts coupled with her small waist. Carver defines the term hourglass and as people began to take notice of her, her web hits soared. Carver currently lives in Los Angeles, California to showcase her amazing body bending in all sorts of awesome directions while never wearing a bra. Wowzer!
8 Miranda Kerr
Miranda Kerr looks quite impressive partaking in her yoga poses. The Australian model rose to fame in 2007 when she was anointed a Victoria's Secret Angel. Kerr actually started modeling back when she was just 13. With her brown hair and blue eyes, Kerr was an Australian treasure who blossomed into one of the most successful models from down under. She married Orlando Bloom in 2010 before separating from him three years later. Kerr is massively successful and one of the biggest mega-models in the world. She owns her own businesses and has written her own book. We find a great deal of inspiration when we watch Kerr do her yoga poses. VERY inspirational!
7 Marina Vovchenko
If this pose looks incredible, then you would be correct. Welcome to the world of Marina Vovchenko who is an Internet sensation due to her incredible physique and yoga moves. This 34-year-old Russian is a mother of 3...that's right...34 and mother of 3! She sports a shaved head and is incredibly aerodynamic. Vovchenko is from the capital of Russia, Moscow and has drawn quite the crowd of followers now, topping 145,000, who all arrive to take a look at this incredibly flexible and beautiful Russian online sensation. She is an absolute goddess and although she is more of an Internet sensation, we just had to give her the nod. Many of her photos showcase her either naked or almost naked doing amazingly challenging yoga postures. She is a very popular yoga instructor in Russia who has gained fame there.
6 Gisele Bundchen
Gisele Bundchen, or Mrs. Tom Brady, is an absolute specimen of a woman. She is a supermodel of epic proportions. Her success is almost unmatched in the modeling business. Gisele has scored huge amounts of money and popularity all across the world with her modeling. Gisele married Tom Brady back in 2009 and then proceeded to have two kids. Despite having two children, Gisele hasn't missed a beat. Her body is as fit as any model's in the world. Nearly the age of 40, Gisele hasn't skipped a beat and a lot of this success can be attributed to her concentration on yoga. Her ability to do nearly every yoga pose imaginable is truly a special gift. She actively shares this gift with the public on her Instagram and Twitter accounts. Gisele is truly impressive.
5 Ola Jordan
Hola, Ola Jordan! Ola is a professional dancer who has an extraordinary body; as in, incredible! Ola originated from Legionowo, Poland where she was born. She was a staple on the hit British television show Strictly Come Dancing for ten years from 2006-2015. She has been dancing since the age of twelve. Ola Jordan grew in the Polish dancing industry to capture dancing Championships. Her current husband, James Jordan, met Ola back in 2000 when they forged a partnership together. They turned professional as a dance duo in 2003 and got married the same year. Ola's dance moves are very impressive, but when you see her doing yoga, you go to another level of impressed. Ola has a variety of her yoga moves online for all to see and whenever you see an incredibly talented, beautiful dancer doing her yoga in a tiny bikini, you watch. It's just a man rule that exists in the world.
4 Britney Spears
Britney Spears emerged from the abyss in a seductive Catholic school girl's outfit, dancing to a song apologizing for "doing it again." Her impact on the world was almost immediate. She turned heads right from the start, emerging from her Mickey Mouse Club persona and creating a whole new Disney girl gone bad. Britney truly blazed a trail for her success and was immediately compared to the kind of impact that the queen of pop music, Madonna, exhibited when she first came on to the scene. Britney was extraordinary in her ability to have an original sound combined with her dance moves. The fresh-faced blonde Southerner had a huge impact on pop music and it created an exceptional career that has seen her achieve worldwide success. These days, Britney, now a mother two times over, has used yoga as her main physical development which has contributed to her second-coming. Yoga and Britney definitely go well together.
3 Christy Turlington
The fact that Christy Turlington can make her body do this is enough to get her on this list. What extraordinary flexibility from a beautiful model who has made a career out of looking beautiful. The American supermodel was born in Walnut Creek, California and has since blossomed into a massive success. Turlington was a huge success in the late 1980s and 1990s. She ruled the modeling world. These days she continues to showcase her looks and beauty and as recently as 2014 was chosen as Calvin Klein's Eternity campaign girl. Turlington has modeled for every big name in the business. She has maintained her beauty and figure by practicing a specific yoga blend called Jivamukti. She has even published a book on modeling. And being that she is an absolute goddess and credits yoga with much of her physical beauty, we are all in on her yoga stylings!
2 Kim Kardashian
Hello, Kimmy! Kim Kardashian is known for quite a few things in the world. One of the biggest Internet sensations and "famous for being famous" celebrities has made quite a career out of being a socialite and "web famous." Of course, Kardashian originally shocked the world with her "leaked" video tape (we believe it was simply a brilliant career move FYI). After that, she doubled-down with Playboy and has since enjoyed an incredible line of successes on reality television as well as modeling and owning her own business. Kardashian has parlayed her naked body into a massive empire that has made her, and her family, an epic success. Her empire includes clothing lines, make-up and modeling that has kept Kardashian both relevant and rich. In order to keep up with her busty appearances, she has used yoga to help her stay fit and toned. A fit KK is always good for viral supremacy.
1 Daisy Lea
And we arrive at the eye candy. I know, I know, we saved the best yoga visual for last. Who is Daisy Lea? She was Playboy's Miss May for 2015 in South Africa, and all we can say is, May is our new favorite month! Obviously, Daisy is quite flexible and bendy! This flexibility is directly attributed to her success in yoga. Daisy is clearly pinning for some attention to piggyback off of her Playboy spread. And we are more than happy to give it to her. The beautiful model is absolutely gorgeous with a body that is insanely hot. She tones out with her yoga everywhere and anywhere. This beach photo shoot is one of many that feature Daisy displaying her goods on the sand. Daisy has been dating rock stars of late in between doing yoga half-naked on the beaches of Southern California. One thing is for certain, we haven't heard the last of Daisy and we sure are glad for that!
