She’s the Aussie yogi and health coach who su­per­model Rosie Hunt­ing­ton-white­ley calls on to hone those long, lean limbs. Now based in LA, Claire Grieve per­fects the poses of a star-stud­ded list of ac­tors, Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret mod­els and ath­letes, and preaches the power of self-love. “Lov­ing your body where you are right now will help you de­velop a pos­i­tive, healthy re­la­tion­ship with fit­ness,” she says. “I also be­lieve your yoga or fit­ness pro­gram should be fun and uplift­ing. Find what work­outs make you feel good, men­tally and phys­i­cally, and roll with it.” Amen! HOW SHE WORKS OUT If you equate yoga with rest days, get your butt to a vinyasa class. “Yoga can ab­so­lutely tone, lengthen and strengthen. It can also be an in­cred­i­ble core builder,” Grieve adds. “I usu­ally do a power vinyasa prac­tice six days a week and then a restora­tive yoga ses­sion on the sev­enth. I also love get­ting out­side and rid­ing my bike.” Do al­low time for rest, she adds. “If you push your­self too hard you can cause in­flam­ma­tion or stress, which would end up hav­ing the op­po­site ef­fect.” When it comes to fu­elling up, Grieve makes a case for plants. “I be­lieve ev­ery­one could ben­e­fit from eat­ing way more ve­g­ies.” You know it girl! HER HOT BODY SE­CRETS Hand­stands are the ul­ti­mate bal­ance of strength, con­trol and grace, says Grieve. “Rosie and I prac­tise lots of yoga planks in be­tween our flow to build core, up­per and lower­body strength,” the yogi ex­plains. “Chat­u­ran­gas will build strong wrists for the foun­da­tion you need to sup­port and stack your whole body in a hand­stand.” Feel­ing in­spired?
