Alessandra Ambrosio From Yoga To Angels And Demons

Victoria Secret model, Alessandra Ambrosio gets in some Zen time before party time. Ambrosio is set to host a scary chic Heaven and Hell themed party with top sponsors and raving entertainment at celebrity hot spot 1 Oak in West Hollywood, CA on Saturday October 31, 2015.

She may not be runway ready strutting out of her yoga class but this Vickie girl can still rock out her yoga pants and sweaty tee. Yoga among the stars is not a surprise. In a Live Science article, Dr. Lewis Maharam, fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine says, “It’s actually become in vogue with a lot of celebrities like Madonna, Halle Berry and Jennifer Aniston. Yoga is a sophisticated tradition with physical, relaxation and breathing exercises. [But] aerobic exercise is what helps you lose weight.”

Most people think yoga is just about relaxation and are under the impression it’s not really going to make you sweat like a run or morning jog would. Dr. Maharam goes on to say, “If someone wants to lose weight in yoga class, they are going to have to be in a class that challenges them. They have to make sure that their heart is going to beat faster.”

“There’s all different levels of yoga. There is yoga that’s meant for the mind, and there’s power yoga that’s more of an exercise. You’ve got to be sure that you’re doing something more than just a mind experience with relaxing stretches, if you want to lose weight.”

It’s sweaty sophistication! Love.

Thank you Alessandra for the “omspiration” and we hope that you keep your wings this weekend and leave the horns and pitchfork at home.
