Miley Cyrus is not just a pop star, but also a dedicated yoga practitioner. She regularly practices Ashtanga Yoga, a physically demanding yoga style that helps with core strength. Through practice and dedication, her strength and flexibility have impressively increased. The yogi often shares photos and videos of herself doing poses on her Instagram.
In March 2016, she wrote, “Gotta do yoga not for my body but for my mind! DO YOGA or GO CRAZY!”
She claims that she does yoga not for her body but for her mind.
Yoga is a practice that will test the practitioner both physically and mentally. True to Miley’s testament, most practitioners believe that thereal surrender in yoga is a mental, rather than physical, obstacle.
Cyrus’ latest snap of her practicing yoga is pretty inspiring. Sporting her new, fully bleached blonde ‘do, Cyrus nails Kukkutasana pose. It’s part of the Ashtanga yoga series, and it’s a pretty tough pose. It requires lots of arm and core strength to lift your legs off the ground, as Cyrus demonstrates. She makes it look easy.
