With a busy schedule in tack, a judge on NBC’s The Voice and a Maroon 5 tour, he has to find a way to stay sane. While many celebrities use different techniques on the road, Adam Levine has a private yoga teacher travel with him. Levine tells Men’s Health Magazine,
“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.”
To get ready for a show, Adam does one hour of yoga before hitting the stage. He has been doing yoga for five years and he claims he is still not a pro. There is always something new to learn for yoga; people dedicate their lives to it and they still do not have poses down perfectly. Yoga seems to have a very set lifestyle, but Levine has made it very clear that he does not want to live the “yoga life”. He reveals,
“There’s a very specific yoga cliche: Eat these foods, wear these clothes, believe only these things. I don’t want to be that. It’s made me more successful. I love it and don’t know what I’d do without it.”
Adam’s yoga instructor Chad Dennis says that yoga is perfect for him. He discloses that even though yoga can give you the same physical results as other workout routines, the main purpose is to teach you to be still and calm under challenging circumstances.
