Tips from Jen's yoga instructor.
If you really want a body like Jennifer Aniston (and who doesn’t?) it may be time to start practicing yoga. However Mandy Ingber, Aniston’s yoga instructor for the last nine years, says the real secret to the actress’ hot bod lies less in one particular pose and more in the positive mindset yoga helped her cultivate.

Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked.

I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
