Christy Turlington Interview
These are some related highlights with Psychology Today. She has such a great attitude about life, body, and beauty.
How long have you been practicing yoga and how did you start?
I went to my first yoga class at 18. A friend was doing it, and I admired the discipline and focus. I decided I wanted that positive focus in my life to help me cope with the erratic lifestyle my career perpetuates. It was, and remains, an invaluable source of energy and inspiration for me, and all of my efforts in life, both personal and professional.
How have you adjusted your life according to Ayurveda?
It has been an organic evolution. Through my practice of yoga I was drawn to Ayurveda, a sister philosophy, and also to things that are generally better for me. My diet, and also the way that I respond to the world and the world to me, has gradually changed.
What is your dosha, and how does it reflect who you are?
I am a vata/pitta, which means that my constitution is generally pitta, hard-working, a leader, but I also have a vata imbalance, which is revealed in my skin type. I have dry skin and a small bone structure, a lot of creative energy and I speak very quickly. This is just a snapshot of how dosha qualities affect me physically, but Ayurveda is a very complex science that is 5,000 years old. We all have all three doshas and all five elements of nature in each of us in varying degrees, which makes each of us an individual.
What did you learn about women’s relationship to beauty from the time you spent in the fashion industry?
Nothing. I think each woman has her own relationship to beauty. I began to understand this after I made the decision to step outside the profession to continue my studies. Life teaches you your opinion about these matters, not modeling. It just is not real or broad enough to provide the answers to those questions.
How were you able to avoid many of the difficult body-image issues that models deal with?
I guess I am fortunate in that I have maintained a very healthy self-image throughout my life. I began my career before I was aware of magazines and the power those images have on young women. And, when I was in the midst of that world and working with talented people, I simply entrusted them to worry about the way I looked.
