She came in like a wrecking ball—but now pop diva Miley Cyrus is all about the ashtanga.
In the latest edition of stars being just like us, Cyrus’ Instagram feed has recently become less populated by wild Hollywood parties and instead filled with hyperlapse videos of her at-home yoga practice (messy living room ambience included). “Gotta do yoga not for my body but for my mind,” the 23-year-old captioned one of her videos. On another she proclaimed, “Do yoga or go crazy!” (Which, incidentally, we have totally muttered to ourselves.)
In the four-part video series, Cyrus demonstrates her morning ashtanga vinyasa practice, starting with sun salutations—chaturangas and warrior I on both sides—then moving into a series of forward folds, pyramid pose, and seriously impressive standing leg raises. (Miley, when did you get so bendy?!) Her boat pose is sturdy, her wheel poses are legit, and her headstand shows off some seemingly effortless core strength.
Best of all, the pop star seems to be keeping her practice super simple and ultra-relatable. She’s dressed in a cotton sports bra and sweatpants, and is in the middle of a cluttered room—and she says she’s doing it more for her mind than her body.
