- Shortly after landing in New York City Friday, Meghan Markle headed to one of her longtime favorite spots in the city: Modo Yoga in the West Village.
- The Duchess of Sussex flew into the States this weekend to attend the U.S. Open Final on Saturday, in which her good friend Serena Williams is competing.
- To cure the jet lag from the transatlantic flight, Meghan and a friend hit up a very full, very public yoga class at the eco-conscious studio, according to People.
The Duchess of Sussex and former actress has spent more than her fair share of time on airplanes, often crossing entire oceans and multiple time zones, so we definitely trust her advice in this arena.
On Friday, Meghan landed in New York City, where she'll be attending the U.S. Open Final on Saturday. Meghan's longtime friend/tennis legend Serena Williams will be playing in the tournament, which is being held at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens.
Even though she can clearly get the literal royal treatment anywhere she goes, Meghan didn't demand a private session. Nope, she rolled out her mat with a bunch of commoners for what was reportedly a very full and shockingly chill class of fellow yogis.
"There were lots of sweet, knowing smiles," a royal source told People of the class, which is all the proof you need that yoga truly does make you zen AF. Yoga should collectively use this as a new slogan—"Yoga: Do it and you'll be able to keep your cool around the most famous people in the world, all before work."
“She has been going to Modo Yoga for many years and tries to do so whenever she is in New York," the source added. "It was the perfect remedy for jet lag."
Sold. Signing up for yoga the next time I travel.
