We met with Kristen Stewart in Twilight, but since that film saga, she has gone from teen idol to muse of auteur cinema, without forgetting to star in such mythical films as Charlie’s Angels.
The sports Kristen Stewart practices to stay in top shape during her shoots
Kristen Stewart has starred in the Pirelli 2020 calendar and has become a fashion reference thanks to her risky and trendy looks.
For her, it is important to stay in shape, although she has confessed many times that she is not a gym lover, and she achieves it by combining three sports modalities: Bikram yoga, swimming, and dancing.
Bikram Yoga to increase elasticity and balance
This yoga modality, not suitable for everyone (it is important to know the restrictions before practicing it), is practiced at high temperatures. The rooms where it is performed can reach 42 degrees and 40% humidity.

The idea is to work in about 90 minutes with 26 asanas of the 84 of Hatha Yoga to stretch muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
This practice promotes blood circulation, although it does not have those detoxification effects that are attributed to it, since the body does not eliminate toxins through sweat.
Swimming to stay active and relax
This sport is not only beneficial in itself (improves circulation, strengthens the heart, keeps joints young) but is one of those sports practices ideal as cross-training, for example helping if you practice running.
It is one of the least harmful sports practices and Kristen Stewart helps her to keep fit on a daily basis, as it is the calorie burn with this sport is higher than in others and many different muscles are activated both upper and lower train with its practice.
Dancing to tone the body
The actress has demonstrated her dancing skills in numerous films such as Charlie’s Angels, where she has a complete choreographed scene, or in On the road, but she has also participated in music videos such as Ride ‘Em On Down by The Rolling Stones.
Dancing is a wonderful exercise that has multiple advantages: it takes care of our cardio (especially in aerobic dance), improves flexibility, endurance and coordination, it is the exercise that most helps women to age actively and there are even studies that indicate that dancing burns more calories than running.
You can practice it at home or go to classes, and it is the perfect sport if the gym is not your thing but you want to stay healthy, fit, and get a toned body.
In addition, Kristen Stewart practices some exercises at home like push-ups and squats, both calisthenics exercises with which she works with her own body weight and without any external help. So in her spare time, she manages to stay active even when she doesn’t have time for it.
