With a new show that's her "hardest" yet in a new town, Britney Spears admits that she feels some anxiety about it all. But she has a method of coping with that stress: Yoga, she told "Extra" on December 4.
"Piece of Me" ranks as the "funnest" and "hardest show" that she's done, says Britney. It also involves more exhausting exercise than ever before.
“It’s like ten more times more dancing and it’s more aspects of, like, more props and more gags -- we use that to bring it more to life, make it really exciting," Britney explained.
Asked how she'll cope with the anxiety and stress that's inevitable before a new show, Britney said she'll do yoga breathing and exercises.
It's not the first time that the singer has confessed to using yoga to ease anxiety.
"I love my yoga!" Britney told Ryan Seacrest recently during an interview for "On Air With Ryan Seacrest."
Admitting that she was "doing a lot of yoga right now," Britney described it as "my go-to between all anxiety and everything."
But she wasn't a fan initially.
"The first time I did yoga I didn't like it at all," declared Britney.
"I think the key is finding a good teacher, someone you kind of connect with and if you do find that person then it doesn't feel like you're bored or impatient because I've been in tons of classes where I'm so over it and I can't deal and want it to end, but I think if you find the right instructor, it does wonders for your body."
Also doing wonders for her body: Britney's dedication to her high protein, low carb diet.
"Smart nutrition is half the battle," her trainer Tony Martinez told Hollyscoop recently. "I help her understand portion size and the difference between healthy and not healthy foods."
Tony focuses on encouraging Britney to eat more protein as part of her low-carb diet.
"Basically, I am just trying to up her protein level. She is doing so much with rehearsals and with me and she does not have a lot of time. We try to make sure that she has between 75-80 grams of protein a day," revealed Tony.
