Russell Peter, Madonna

Today I went for Russell Peter live show which was held in Sirifort. I loved it. But I had gone with my two teenaged boys and it was a bit embarrassing to be with them and hear him constantly swear. Rest we had our dose of laughter medicine.

My client today asked me as to what Madonna does for her workout.

Madonna is really old, but she's in amazing shape! She can put young girls to shame with her toned body. Madonna is a devotee of Ashtanga Yoga, which is a particularly strenuous form of yoga. Kareena Kapoor who achieved size 0 also claims that power Yoga helped her achieve that. Madonna is regularly spotted cycling to the gym. That's two workouts in one! A healthy diet is also part of Madonna's game plan. She barely touches junk food, preferring a diet of natural unrefined foods, like whole grains and tons of vegetables. Similar statement about diet plan was also made by Kareena.

Power Yoga is really strenuous. Unlike other forms of Yoga, this is not static. It is dynamic. You continue to move and hence there is cardio and strength training involved. My clients who have done this form with me, absolutely agree that it is a killer workout. It burns about 800 calories in an hour approximately.

I have recently launched a DVD of one hour of workout of Power Yoga which is selling like hot cakes. Many people are working out at home along with the DVD and emailing me that the weight loss which is happening is "to be seen to be believed". No equipment required. No gym, no trainer.

I am ecstatic with the feedback.


  1. Kiran, I have to confess that I LOVE Russell Peters. But I can see how the constant cursing might be a tad embarrassing...
    Madonna does look better than most young people. I little too toned if you ask me. I am all for being healthy and all that but working out for 5-6 hours a day is a bit crazy to me..... unless you're training for the olympics or something...

  2. Laughter is the best doctor and the best medicine too :) I so agree!

    And yes Yoga is great for the body and mind. But is Madonna 'really old'? I dun think so. She's only 50 and thats considered pretty young here in Aus.

    I think we r as old as our MINDS r. :)


  3. @ agnes. I too enjoyed Russell Peter a lot. I also recommend working out no more than an hour for 3- 5 days a week. Yes 5-6 hours is a bit too much.

  4. @ keshi. well said we are only as old as we think we are.

  5. And congrattz on ur first award Kiran! :)
