Many average people practice Yoga because they have heard celebrities talking in the TV shows or in the interviews for magazines about the benefits they got from regular Yoga practice. I must say that it is hard to be a celebrity, the pressure and less privacy make it so hard on them. When I watch TV news about paparazzi’s taking pictures or molesting certain celebrities in the public, I really do feel bad for them.
Heck, they are just people, so leave them alone right?
I guess they have to combat that pressure and other things they come in contact with during their career. No wonder they very often turn to some form of meditation or exercise that will help them to get back into a balance. Yoga do that in each and every session and therefore it is number one free-time activity for these Hollywood stars.
