Jennifer Nettles, the lead vocalist for the Grammy award winning duo, Sugarland, is known in country music for her killer voice, and great style to match! But how does she keep glowing through all those days on the road? Yoga!
"Yoga is life. Plain and simple," Nettles says. "The lessons learned on the mat are applicable metaphors for navigating life in general. I have become much more comfortable in my body since starting yoga. It makes me feel strong of body and heart."
Perhaps Nettles has been practicing her archer pose, which is designed to build confidence and self-esteem.
These days, Nettles brings her own yoga instructor on the road with her, but when she was first starting out, she says she spent months following DVDs. She adds that it's a great way to determine what type of yoga suits your style. "Then, go for it and get to a studio or class as well. Nothing beats having a good teacher to help guide you, support you in your goals, and keep you free from injury," she says.
