Sting & Trudie Styler on Yoga, Sex & Marriage

Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, have been married for 18 years, and credit their bodies and their successful marriage to a daily yoga practice and active sex life.

Sting, 59, and Trudie, 57, have been practicing yoga for 20 years. Trudie tells Harpers Bazaar:

I practice yoga for 45 minutes to an hour-and-a-half every day, wherever I am. Yoga is the best holistic workout and body toner there is. It sorts out a chaotic mind and calms the body -- it is how I de-stress, or stop myself getting stressed in the first place.
Sting is equally proud of his yoga practice and says it's a lifelong journey:
Yoga has enriched my life by allowing me to improve physically; which is very inspiring, especially as you get older. I tour an awful lot, and being on the road is not always easy... Yoga is a great way to offset the downsides of touring by bringing much-needed peace and sanity into what can be a hectic life. Like music, yoga is a journey -- one that is long enough so you keep developing, and keep learning. I don't see an end to it.
Sting on sex and how Trudie still lights up his world:
I don't think pedestrian sex is very interesting... I like the theater of sex. I like to look good. I like her to dress up. I like to dress her up.... We love each other -- that's a given -- but Trudie lights my world up when she comes into a room. I don't take her for granted.
Communication is key to a successful marriage, says Trudie:
It's important to have frank discussions about what the other wants...To be in a relationship that is like a little lifetime, that's a challenge.
