80-Year-Old Paul McCartney’s Yoga Practice May Be The Most Inspiring Thing I’ve Seen

0 2 years ago

He’s a Grammy winner, knight, and, of course, a Beatle. But did you know Sir Paul McCartney is also a yogi?

In 2020, McCartney revealed in an interview with the “Smartless” podcast that he maintains a regular practice with “a couple of mates,” among them Lorne Michaels and Alec Baldwin. “We have this little thing,” said McCartney. “It’s called ‘The Yoga Boys,’ and we do yoga together, and we’re terrible.”

His last point seems unlikely. Back in a 2013interview with Politico, Baldwin praised his yoga partner’s practice, saying McCartney was the only real practitioner of the bunch. “He’s serious,” he said. “He’s got the body of a 17-year-old boy.”

McCartney’s also serious about not limiting his practice to the physical. In an interview for his blog in 2015, he said he regularly turns to transcendental meditation, which he learned in India from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. “I think it’s always very good to get a sort of still moment in your day,” he said in the post. “Whenever I have a chance in a busy schedule, I’ll do it…I always like to take a moment and just meditate. It’s a good thing.”
