Zara Larsson has taken up yoga. The 18-year-old singer/songwriter is embracing a healthier lifestyle after trying out the discipline for the first time over the weekend.

She tweeted: “Just went to yoga for the first time and I now only wanna talk about zen, vegan diets, healthy juices and finding inner balance, thanks.”

Zara is not the only celebrity yoga fan and Anna Kendrick recently revealed her ‘Up in the Air’ co-star George Clooney showed her some of his moves.

She said: “The hotel we were staying at had yoga classes, so I thought I might be good at that, I took dance as a kid. And on set, I was like, ‘yeah, I was doing this move with my leg over my shoulder’. Bragging, basically.

“And George said, ‘can you touch your head to your knees?’ I was like, no one can do that. And he did it right there in front of me. He basically folded himself in half. It’s really impressive. It was like, OK – so you’re better than me at everything.”

Meanwhile, supermodel Elle Macpherson tries to fit in some yoga every day.

She said: “I feel my best when I spend 45 minutes each morning doing some sport; I run, do yoga, go paddle boarding or hiking. Once I’m outdoors, breathing the fresh air, I feel like I’ve accomplished something.”

And Jessica Alba is a fan of hot yoga.

She said: “If I work out four times, I consider it a successful week. But it’s typically more like two to three days a week because that’s what I have time for. I take Spin or hot yoga classes in the morning, and I sacrifice sleep to fit them in.

“For me, the benefits of exercise are more mental than physical. Working out takes away that little edge so that I feel happier and more productive, and my brain can get kick-started.”
