This Is The One Exercise Meghan Markle Swears By

She has her mum to thank for it!

Long before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were a royal phenomenon, the actress was a bonafide star on the rise thanks to her role in the hit show Suits.

But not only does she star on the hit show, she also runs her own lifestyle website detailing her holistic way of life, and sharing her tips and tricks for living your best life.

While Meghan credits running with keeping her in shape (she’s even planning to run a marathon) but it’s really all about the yoga, and considering her mum in a yoga instructor, well it’s kind of in the genes.

“Yoga is my thing, and I work out with a trainer in Yorkville as well,” she told Best Health magazine

“My mom is a yoga instructor, and I started doing mommy-and-me yoga with her when I was seven. I was very resistant as a kid, but she said, “Flower, you will find your practice – just give it time.” In college, I started doing it more regularly.”

But for Meghan she says eating right and staying fit is about more than just looking good.

“I don’t just take care of myself for aesthetic reasons but because how I feel is dictated by what I’m eating, how much rest I’m getting and how much water I’m drinking. If I don’t have time for a long workout, I’ll grab my dog and go for a quick run. Being active is my own moving meditation.”
