SCORE A HOT CORE
Plus a longer, leaner shape thanks to the celeb trainer who works some of the world’s hottest bodies
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?
