Anitta in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares Yoga Video

Here are her go-to health habits

Anitta is heating up the yoga studio in her exercise ensemble. In a few new social media posts the singer shows off her fit figure in yoga gear while doing a workout with some friends. What makes yoga such a great workout and what other diet and exercise habits help keep her in such great shape? Celebwell has the answers. 


Here Is What She Eats in a Day

"It's all about balance," is the motto Anitta lives by with her diet. "People look at my body and they say, 'Oh no, you don't eat the things you say you eat,' but actually I do," she told Women's Health. She does follow a plant-based diet, however, so you won't find her eating any meat. "I drink celery juice before [breakfast]. I wait 20 minutes, and then I eat," Anitta explained, detailing her diet. For breakfast, she loves oatmeal pancakes (oats, non-dairy milk, flour, eggs, and some sort of oil or butter). "I like to put peanut butter on it," she says. Sometimes she will add fruit, preferably "a papaya or maybe mango," she says. For lunch, Anitta usually has a salad, greens with "either mushrooms, beans, or maybe sweet potatoes," she says. She is more intentional with her diet for her first two meals, and "then at night, I just eat whatever," she notes. "Like tonight I'm cooking hot dogs with my friends, to be honest." Another favorite dinner? "I like cooking pasta," she says. And preferably gluten-free.



"Pilates helps so much with my back and [other] physical problems," Anitta says. Why is Pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.


Strength Training

"I don't love working out, to be honest with you," the star confessed to Women's Health. The "Lobby" singer does a lot of strength training—"particularly [of] the muscles [in the] legs, arms, back, and boom boom," (booty) she says. 


Martial Arts


Once a week, Anitta practices a martial art or combat sport like Muay Thai or jiu-jitsu, she told Women's Health. 


What Are the Other Benefits of Yoga


There are more than 100 different types, or schools, of yoga, says the American Osteopathic Association. Most practices include breathing exercises, meditation, and assuming postures (sometimes called asana or poses) that stretch and flex various muscle groups."The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome," Natalie Nevins, DO, a board-certified osteopathic family physician and certified Kundalini Yoga instructor in Hollywood, California, explained to them. "Yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia."

Other physical benefits of yoga include:

  • increased flexibility
  • increased muscle strength and tone
  • improved respiration, energy and vitality
  • maintaining a balanced metabolism
  • weight reduction
  • cardio and circulatory health
  • improved athletic performance
  • protection from injury




Harvard Health explains why yoga is such an efficient workout. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
