When Elle Macpherson, the woman who is nicknamed “The Body”, shares fitness advice we listen intently.
So we were all the more intrigued to hear that the 53-year-old Australian model, who turns 54 later this month, has been maintaining her physique with a workout that we’ve fans of too.
Speaking to Covetuer, the mother of two and founder of WelleCo, shared her latest fitness obsession: vinyasa flow.
“I really am very into yoga at the moment, vinyasa flow,” Elle revealed.
“So I try to do yoga every day, go to a class. I love the energy of practicing with like-minded people. I find that it has just changed my perspective on how the body can feel when it’s being nurtured.”
As those who have done a flow class will know, Elle says yoga isn’t all stretching and lying on the ground and is a serious workout: “It’s really hard, but the rewards are so great for it, so it’s worth it.”
She really appreciates the mind body connection that yoga brings to her fitness regime too: “I like the fact that one has to be really conscious within the practice. So…I mean, there’s nothing wrong with putting on headphones and going for a run; I love that as well. But I just think mindless pounding away isn’t where I’m at.”
“At 50, I realized that I couldn’t rely on genetics anymore,” she added.
As Vinyasa devotees, we’ve been very encouraged by this news and are expecting to wake up with a five-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model any day now.
