Ariana Grande may have led the crowd in a SoulCycle-inspired performance last night at the VMAs—impressively keeping the beat while effortlessly belting out her new song Side to Side, in platform heels no less—but she wasn’t the only star working out while the annual MTV awards show was broadcasting.

Miley Cyrus, the attention-grabbing host of the 2015 VMAs, was noticeably absent from the show and left the world wondering what she was doing—until she took to Instagram to fill everyone in.

“Sorry I can’t make it to the VMAzzz I am toooo busy at home doing yoga & making out w my dogs!” the singer posted along with a selfie with her dog, where she was rocking the limited-edition Beyond Yoga x Coolhaus leggings. (Which are now, as expected, sold out, but the matching sports bra is still available!)

Cyrus has been more vocal about her mindful pursuits, trading in her well-documented partying days for a little more zen in her life. In addition to being a major yogi, The Voice judge is also a vegan and often posts about some W+G-friendly topics such as new moons and cruelty-free products.

Even though the VMAs is a huge night for musicians—and formerly Cyrus herself—it turns out she can be tamed if yoga and leggings are involved.
