Mandy Ingber Shares How Jennifer Aniston’s Yoga Practice Helps Her ‘Embody a Healthy Lifestyle’

Originally posted 05/02/2016 02:45PM

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!”
