Ashtanga Yoga Profile: Christy Turlington

July 7, 2008

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.”
