Vampire Diaries Star Nina Dobrev - Yogi!

Nina Dobrev, the 22-year-old star of the hit show, Vampire Diaries, covers Seventeen magazine, where she talks about her love for yoga!

Nina tells Seventeen:

"I do a lot of yoga. I practice yoga three or four times a week. It’s an escape for me.... I could be a yoga instructor. I’m not certified, but I could do it. Once I did a class where the instructor didn’t show up, and I just went to the front and did it, and everyone followed. So I’ve done it before, and I love it."
I also love what Nina has said in the past about why yoga is important to her:
"I love yoga because it’s very calming for your body and your spirit... It gives you that meditative state and its 90 minutes where you can get away from the world and just be, and exist in the moment. I need yoga. It’s part of my life and I can’t imagine not doing it."
Nina on her yoga routine:
"In the morning if I can’t go to [yoga] class, I’ll go jump on a bed and do Downward Dog, or stretch, or go into Childs Pose and just breathe and relax and get ready for my day... I have a routine that I have to go by. It’s important."
Go Nina!
