Picture yourself in a quiet yoga class, enjoying peacefulness and mediation. Your teacher guides you through the movements, and your teacher is… Russell Brand?
No, it’s not a random, weird fantasy. One day you really may be able to take yoga classes instructed by the British actor and comedian.
As told to the Sunday Mirror newspaper, Russell Brand, 37, is planning to begin training at Golden Bridge Yoga in Los Angeles to become a certified yoga instructor.
Brand is an avid yoga practitioner and was encouraged to take the teacher training courses by his yoga instructor and friend Tej Kaur, who is a teacher at Golden Bridge LA.
Brand plans to finish his training next year and then open a yoga studio in Los Angeles. In addition to yoga classes, he wants his studio to offer meditation classes, cooking classes, aromatherapy classes, and lectures.
His dream for the studio is to help people in need, such as the homeless and addicts, find their “spiritual souls.” He wants to offer free classes to those who are seeking help and personal fulfillment. Brand himself is a recovering drug addict who has been sober since 2003.
