Britney Spears has made it her goal to practice more yoga throughout 2020.

The Toxic hitmaker took to Instagram on Thursday to share a clip of her working on her yoga poses in her backyard while sporting a purple bikini and white sneakers.

“Today I’m outside, and I’m about to do a little bit of yoga to open up my back and my chest, and I’m out here with my dogs, and we’re going to have a beautiful day!” she told her 23 million followers.

In the accompanying caption for her post, Britney went on to explain that she has greatly benefitted from regular yoga sessions, and wants to learn more of the basics.

“In 2020, I will be doing a lot more acroyoga and the basics for yoga… I’m a beginner and it’s kind of hard to let go…learning to trust and letting someone else hold your body!!!” the 38-year-old explained. “I have a lot of things I keep bottled up so I have to keep my body moving!!!! Thank God for Mother Nature …. she’s really no joke …. she grounds me and helps me find my feet and always opens my mind when I step outside.”

Britney also noted that she is working on her running too and is trying to “gain speed”.

“I just flew in from a trip with my family and I ran a 6.8 speed outside my house for a 100-meter yard dash … I did 6 in high school so I’m trying to gain speed!!!!” she wrote, before adding: “I hurt my thigh so I apologize if my legs look swollen. I hope you all have a wonderful new year and GOD SPEED!!!!! PS I’m so cool with my tennis shoes and yoga. It’s the new thing you know.”

Gwyneth Paltrow has incurred the wrath of yoga fans after taking credit for bringing the ancient Indian practice to the mainstream.

In a bold new interview with WSJ. Magazine, the actress and Goop founder declared that yoga’s surge in popularity was all down to her, and people had initially called her a “witch” and a “freak” after she became involved in the spiritual practice.

“Forgive me if this comes out wrong, but I went to do a yoga class in L.A. recently and the 22-year-old girl behind the counter was like, ‘Have you ever done yoga before?’ And literally I turned to my friend, and I was like, ‘You have this job because I’ve done yoga before’,” Gwyneth boasted.

Her comments have not gone down well though, with Twitter users venting their anger at her ignorance.

“yoga has been around for thousands of years and gwyneth paltrow thinks she invented it,” one user tweeted, while another said: “OMG. It was really Gwyneth Paltrow who wrote the Yoga Sutras THOUSANDS of years ago?! Wow, and she Time travels!! What an idiot. She is Hollywood’s Trump in terms of narcissism.”

A third posted: “My brown self did not know that Gwyneth Paltrow invented yoga. This is Peak White Nonsense.”

Others pointed out that Marilyn Monroe, who died 10 years before 46-year-old Gwyneth was even born, was a big fan of yoga.

Raquel Welch, Shirley MacLaine, Barbra Streisand, Michael Jackson and Jeff Bridges were also all clients of Bikram Choudhury’s Bikram yoga movement in the early mid-‘70s.
