Russell Brand Becoming a Yoga Teacher
Russell Brand is training to become a yoga teacher. The Get Him to the Greek star is a huge fan of the Indian exercise and wellbeing practice and even thinking of opening his own studio in Los Angeles with the help of his instructor Tej Kaur.
"His teacher at Goldenbridge Yoga is in charge of teacher training at the center and has encouraged Russ to take the course. He decided to give it a go. The pair have become good friends and Russell relies on Tej to bring calmness into his often crazy life. Once he's finished his course next Spring, he'll set up his own studio in Los Angeles," a source said.
Former sex and drugs addict Russell, 37, may even use the center to help those less fortunate than himself. "He has this idea of an all-giving studio where teachers work for their own fulfillment and those in need such as the homeless and addicts in need of finding their spiritual soul. He wants to create his own mantra and take his teachings round the world like other renowned teachers he's learned from in the past. It's all part of his dream of building his own community and he would like to offer free classes to those in need. It would also include meditation, cooking classes, lectures and aromatherapy classes," the source added.
