Levine shared his essential poses, styles he swears by, and some of the songs from his yoga playlist with Details. Here are a few things he had to say about working out.
On why he turned to yoga: “Weights made my neck thick, and I would be like, ‘I’m turning into a monster!’ Yoga takes what you have and molds and sculpts it, which is a much more natural way to look and feel.”
On the aesthetic payoff of yoga: “I don’t like how people bullshit about how yoga is not about vanity.”
On doing yoga before a show: “At any Maroon 5 concert, you’ll see a room backstage marked YOGA. Playing a show before thousands of people is a highly unnatural state, and when I get on the mat to do an hour of yoga before the show, I come out physically relaxed.”
