Anya Taylor-Joy In Workout Gear Hikes Yosemite National Park

Here are her wellness tips.

Anya Taylor-Joy says she is happiest being barefoot in nature, so of course she was thrilled to experience one of the most beautiful spots in California—Yosemite National Park. Taylor-Joy, 28, shared pictures and video from the trip, including ones of herself wearing a tank top and baseball hat, standing in front of a beautiful waterfall, and (of course) making friends with a squirrel. "YOSEMITE ♥️🗻♥️," she captioned the post. Here's what Taylor-Joy's health and (witchy) wellness regimen looks like.


Moving Meditation

Taylor-Joy's workouts are her way of clearing out the cobwebs. "I've realized exercise is not just a way of making sure your body is strong, but that if you're not taking care of yourself and giving back to your body, your body is going to end up failing you," she told Glamour. "As someone who has so much energy and is spinning around all the time, being able to do a conscious moving meditation such as kickboxing, reformer Pilates or dancing, is an hour where I can shut my brain off."


Dancing Queen

Taylor-Joy loves to dance at home to release energy. "You just kind of stomp around and sing and release your feelings," she told Glamour. "It can be very easy to fall into your own shell and you need to connect again to the fire in your belly and your soul. I love being barefoot. I love being in nature. The more simple it is, the happier I usually am."


Witchy Wellness

Taylor-Joy loved her role in The Witch, and how more people are embracing alternative wellness routines. "I'm such a big believer in cosmic destiny and putting one foot in front of the other, and my feet led me to that film," she told Vanity Fair. "It's been really fun watching [that kind of wellness] take off. I think it's wrong for O.G. witches to be like, 'Ugh, now everyone has crystals.' It's like, Yes! Amazing. People are starting to open their minds to the idea of minerals having properties that can help you out, and it being less 'inject this; this will make you feel great.' Just maybe take a couple of breaths and hold on to this crystal."


Skincare Routine


Taylor-Joy loves using oils (such as avocado oil) on her face. "Growing up in Argentina, I was very much the roll-in-the-dirt kind of kid—the ultimate tomboy," she told Vanity Fair. "So it took me a while to start washing my face, but now that I have makeup on it a lot, I like this cleanser by Chanel called Sublimage. It's the one thing that doesn't ever make me break out because I have such sensitive skin. There's a nutrient mist by True Botanicals which is really nice."


Alone Time

Taylor-Joy's idea of self-care is to spend time alone with a book. "Sometimes I find meditation quite hard," she told Vogue. "It's not about trying to stop the thoughts. It's just about being okay with them and not judging yourself for it. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be calm, but I think you just need to accept where you are at this moment in time and be generous with yourself."
