5 Yoga Poses to Get Jennifer Aniston's Body

Instructor Mandy Ingber shares her secrets to sculpting one of Hollywood's hottest stars.

More Tips from Mandy:

  • "Make it fun by adding your favorite music," suggests Ingber, who plays tunes with Aniston. "Yoga doesn't have to be completely silent."
  • Before you start any routine, take three long deep breaths. "Breath is the bridge from the mind to the body, so the place you set your mind affects your body," she says.
  • Practice control. This extends into all aspects of life, including diet. Aniston, Ingber says, "is about the only person I know who can eat three chips," but having restraint is key.
  • "Never force a stretch or a pose," she warns. "Simply allow your body to move to its edge."
  • Pay attention to opposing forces. "There are three energies in each pose," she says. "Gravity sinking you down, inspiration extending upward, and the center point."
