Adam Levine is well known for his role as a front man in Maroon 5 as well as a judge on The Voice. What most people do not know about this rock star, actor and television host is that he is an active participant of yoga. In fact, he has been using yoga as a form of exercise and relaxation for quite a number of years now. However, it was only in recent months that he has gained increasing attention among the yoga community.
It was only recently that Adam spoke of his love of yoga to Men’s Health. Aside from that, he has also uploaded some of his yoga videos on YouTube and it has been increasing steadily in the total number of views. According to him, yoga is a method for him to channel his energy. “I have a hard time sitting still. I can be all over the map. Yoga has given me the ability to be more focused and make better decisions that come from a clear place. … It’s made me more successful. I love it and don’t know what I’d do without it,” he explained.
Although he admits his love towards yoga, he emphasised that he did not want to be classified under he cliche of eating certain foods and wearing certain clothes. However, he did mention that yoga has provided him with a new sense of style. “When you look at anyone who I considered a fashion icon, the clothes are always a collage of different looks and moods. I love waking up, throwing on some yoga pants, and hanging out all day looking like a psycho. And then that night I’ll throw on a suit and go out looking like a businessman. I love that flexibility. I wouldn’t do any of this (stuff) if it weren’t fun,” he said. He also added that he has been using yoga as a way of assisting him when he is on stage.
