Jennifer Aniston Talks About Yoga

Speak Up: How Has Exercise Changed Your Life?

It's no secret that Jennifer Aniston is a fan of yoga. Just how big a fan? Find out by watching this video clip from the intro Jen shot for her yoga instructor Mandy Ingber's new Yoga DVD, Yogalosophy.

I can totally relate when Jennifer sweetly talks about how yoga has completely changed her life. Ever since I started practicing yoga 10 years ago, it's has been a source of strength for me. When I go to class regularly, I feel stronger emotionally but also centered, calm, and joyful. Yoga reminds me to be aware of the important things in life and not to take them for granted. So I'm curious to know what kind of exercise has impacted your life. How has being active made a difference in how you feel or live?

I also do yoga, and it really, reeeally helps me. I was totally out of my mind, I'd cut myself, I tried to run away, I'd push out family and friends and do absolutely nothing until all I wanted to do was sleep. Every day I'd just wake up wanting to kill myself, and it really sucked. Doing yoga really helps me wash away stress of the day so it doesn't keep building up. Helps self esteem, too. :)

Exercise makes everything better. My back pain went away, I lost weight I was trying to lose since high school, my self-esteem has improved, I've become stronger physically and emotionally, I've connected with other healthy-minded people, and my fit lifestyle has inspired other people to get in shape too.

Exercise has been very beneficial to me. Almost everyone in my family is obese/overweight and high blood pressure and high cholesterol are also very prevalent. After my grandpa died from his 4th heart attack, I decided I didn't want to end up like him when I was older. After I started exercising, my cholesterol levels were much better, my resting heart rate was lower, my asthma went away, and my extremely painful periods went away. I found out that being overweight can disrupt hormone levels, so losing weight and being active really alleviated my cramps.

laellavita, that is SUCH a wonderful thing I am so glad you shared it! mine is not as poignant and probably a little gross. I've always been active but not since college was I very regularly working out, and at least this summer or so it affected, ahem, regularity. sounds ridiculous, but regular exercise has helped me get back on track in the GI sense which really has changed my life for the better. not a profound change necessarily, but a very much appreciated and very noticeable change. and sorry for the TMI :)

Exercise has entirely changed my life because it has been an integral tool in recovering from my eating disorder. I know this seems counter-intuitive, especially because in the throes of my disorder, I was working out like a maniac to burn off every last calorie, but I no longer look at exercise as a way to keep my calorie count down but rather as amazing proof of exactly what my body is able to do -- which is a miraculous thing. Running gives me a point in my day where I am able to shut the rest of the world out, no phone, no obligations, no nothing, and just focus on myself and my task. It really is just about as meditative as yoga, which also helps me remember to live in the moment. The contrast really works for me, running and going faster and pushing myself to go a little further all reflects in my life, as does the slowing down and static effort that happens in yoga. As a result of exercise, I also want to eat to fuel my body and stay healthy, and when I'm healthy, I'm happy and social as opposed to shut off and secretive like I was with my disorder.
