Yoga pro Mandy Ingber has been working with Jennifer Aniston for many years, and says her yoga practice has helped get her through some difficult times.

“I think for many of my celebrity clients, people love it because it’s a through-line, and it brings you through whatever you’re going through,” Ingber tells PEOPLE. “I started working with Jennifer when she finished Friends and when she and Brad [Pitt] were breaking up. That was the moment that the wave started, and I think that was a big part of what helped her through.”

Aniston now does a combination of yoga and spinning three days a week.

“Spinning is a modality that I love, and what yoga does is it lengthens the muscles,” says Ingber. “Spinning and yoga are complements because in both you’re connecting with your breath, you’re finding that sense of detachment, you’re pushing past your edge.”

Ingber says the World’s Most Beautiful woman truly embodies an overall healthy approach to life.

“She just embodies healthy lifestyle,” says Ingber. “She’s the embodiment of balance and comfort in your own skin.”

Having comfort and self-love for your body is something Ingber tries to teach in her practice, as well as in her upcoming book, Yogalosophy for Inner Strength: 12 Weeks to Heal Your Heart and Embrace Joy.

“The basis of yoga is about connecting with your body, no matter what type of body you have,” she says. “My main message is to love your body like it is, and it will get into shape. It won’t get into shape faster if you’re beating yourself up!”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

JA has a move coming out. PM runs an article on how beautiful JA is followed by articles about BP cheating. Next we’re on to still photos of the new husband JT standing next to JA at one of her movie premieres grinning like a Cheshire cat. JA then gives several interviews about trips to Mexico, hair extensions and her daily eating habits –which consists of one hard boiled egg and copious amounts of designer water. This is followed up with an article about Mandy Ingbar, JA personal guru, to whom she owes her entire career.
Rinse and Repeat with the next movie opening.

So smoking, toking, drinking, tanning, is healthy? How about having a face full of fillers regularly? Is that healthy living? And please, it’s been 11 years!!! Aniston and her friends need to stop referencing her ex and their divorce! Pathetic.
