Thandie Newton Relies on Vegetarianism and This Style of Yoga to Stay in Shape

Thandie Newton is seemingly ageless. The 45-year-old's skin always looks glowing and picture-perfect, and she's in great shape — just look at her amazing abs. And while some people can attribute this to good genes, Thandie credits her dedication to a vegetarian diet and Jivamukti yoga.

A few years ago, she told Stylecaster in an interview that while she is a vegetarian, it's about eating the right foods for the diet, noting that ingesting a lot of bread and cheese tends to slow down her body and makes her feel sluggish. She explained that bright colors and foods like spinach, kale, and beets are winners for her.

"It's key to make sure you have a lot of color on your plate. The more colorful the food, the more beneficial it is," she said.

In addition to keeping her diet colorful, she is set on practicing Jivamukti yoga as frequently as possible, she has said openly. The yoga training is a combination of vigorous hatha yoga and a vinyasa-based physical style, however, it comes with a spiritual aspect as well and usually ends with a relaxing meditation. The practice is set to help ground those who take part in this style of yoga to the Earth.

And, while she is dedicated to her yoga, trainer Liston Wingate-Denys also has her combining routines that involve strength training, self-defense, light weights, and stretching with Jivamukti in order to get optimal results, he told Healthista.

"She is genetically gifted and has a dance background. I normally go for general fitness with her and toning. She isn't looking for muscle mass and she hasn't got the right frame for that," he said.

He said that he likes to work out with her two to three times a week, depending on her schedule.
