In an interview, Lisa Ray got candid about her workout routine. Apart from eating healthily, she also follows a fitness regimen to keep her body fit and strong. One of her go-to workouts is yoga. “Yoga plays a huge role in my routine, and I practise different yoga styles three times a week,” said the actress.
“I also work out with Jane Clapp at Urbanfitt in Toronto. She customises a holistic workout that involves everything from kettleballs to ropes used by Sumo wrestlers. And I love to hike.” Both her diet plan and exercise routine, in addition to her skincare regimen, are the reasons she looks youthful and radiant even when she’s in her late 40s.
