Kerry Washington is not just a stellar actress and a total MILF, but she is also a certified yoga instructor who just so happened to pick up the certificate during a 7-month stay in India.
The actress stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and opened up about her experience in India, which also included studying traditional martial arts. “I went to India after college and studied,” she told the talk show host. “I wanted to travel somewhere and study culture and art and I was choosing between India and Japan, but I’m allergic to sesame and seafood … so I went to India.”
Washington revealed that she “was studying traditional Indian martial arts and cultural movement and I was studying yoga” in hopes to move back to the states and make a living.
The career as a yoga instructor didn’t exactly work out, but she did put it to good use, all thanks to her mother. “My mother said that she would let me live at home if I taught her yoga for an hour a day,” she recalled. “That lasted for a week.”
Kerry added, “She was like, ‘I hate yoga and you may not be able to live here if you keep doing this.'”
Talk about being well rounded.
