A Los Angeles report dated Saturday January 23, 2010, says 'a radiant looking Heidi Montag appears to be in great spirits, as she is seen practicing Yoga with her instructor outdoors'.

American television personality and recording artist Heidi Montag has started intensive Yoga to get back in shape, after she recently underwent multiple plastic surgeries (10 surgeries on a single day) according to reports that also said Montag, 23, was recently spotted practicing Kundalini Yoga in a grassy field in Los Angeles with her instructor. She has been doing Kundalini Yoga daily.

Kundalini Yoga is a physical and meditative discipline within the tradition of Yoga, associated with the subdivision of Hatha Yoga, but also closely associated with Raja Yoga, Tantra, Ashtanga, Kriya Yoga and the sutras of Patanjali. Kundalini yoga is sometimes called ‘the Yoga of awareness’ because it awakens the ‘Kundalini’ which is the unlimited potential that already exists within every human being. The awakening of Kundalini means awakening of inner knowledge, awareness and evolved consciousness. It claims to provide extensive benefits for personal growth, health and improving mental and physical well-being, including the ability to cure asthma, diabetes, pain, stress-related diseases, healing and rehabilitating addictive behavior, and treating mental disorders.

Recently the famous Hindu chaplain Rajan Zed has extended invitation to other Hollywood celebrities to explore Kundalini or other forms of Yoga, referred as ‘a living fossil’, which he says is both a mental and physical discipline by means of which the human-soul (jivatman) unites with universal-soul (parmatman). Since around 2,000 BCE, yoga practice had been handed down from one guru to the next, Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, added in a statement from Nevada (USA). Apart from Montag, many other Hollywood celebrities practice Yoga of one discipline or the other.
