Jen Aniston

Longtime yogi Jen Aniston has shown us the benefits of yoga on her cover girl body. She has touted both the physical and mental perks of the exercise, and now that the actress has quit smoking, yoga has been that much more helpful. According to ABC News, Aniston has ditched the ciggies and accepted the consequences of putting on "a couple pounds." However, various aspects of yoga such as the breathing techniques, meditation and poses can help alleviate some of the negative effecs of smoking. Studies show that yoga can improve lung capacity and strength as well as teach former smokers how to resist urges and triggers for smoking. As the New Year approaches and you begin to think about your resolutions, if quitting smoking is on the list try pairing it with yoga to aid in the recovery.
