Here is an update on Christy Turlington- Burns activities via a recent magazine interview. Prior to her marriage to actor / director Ed Burns, she inadvertently became the prototype for the " Jivamukti Girl " as mythologized in New York Magazine and Mens' Vogue articles.
Stereotypes aside, she continues to be a dedicated yogini and conscious entrepreneur. The supermodel-turned-magnate credits her entrepreneurial prowess to yoga - " It puts you in closer touch with yourself and what you want " and she's taking the same mindful approach to her businesses ( PUMA / Nuala & Sundari ) ." I'm a big believer in being prepared and putting it out there in the universe ".
Burns has proven herself to be a master at achieving balance in all aspects of her life. Despite how effortless it looks, she's the first to admit just how hard it really is. " Like anybody, you tend to go off the rails a little bit in trying to find balance , because it is not a place you fully arrive at ", Burns says. " I had the good fortune to interview His Holiness , the Dalai Lama, and I asked him about balance. He said he, too , deals with losing his patience and getting annoyed sometimes ".
" It's good to know that an enlightened being has the same struggles as ourselves ," she says. " It gives you the ability to put things in perspective ". ( Image via Amazon )
