Ashtanga Yoga Profile: Christy Turlington

At the age of 18, Christy Turlington began the practice of Yoga after being impressed by “the discipline and the respect and the quietude” she observed in a Yoga-practicing friend. She

began with Kundalini Yoga, but now practices Ashtanga, or “Eight-Limbed” Yoga. She explains Ashtanga as “almost like meditation in motion in that you use Hatha Yoga postures done in a specific sequence.” Noting that the word Yoga means “union,” Turlington explains that she regards Yoga as “a spiritual practice that has incredible physical benefits… a lifestyle, a way of living that connects me to me.”
