In an amazing transformation of hardwork and will, 35-year-old opera singer Olivia Ward won Season 11 of the Biggest Loser by dropping 129 pounds. Check her rocking Vrksasana (Tree Pose) ... though we wish she wasn't resting her foot on her knee joint.
Yoga is part and parcel of the of the five-month journey that contestants undertake on their path from obesity to health. Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper, who studied with Bryan Kest, is a huge yoga advocate, and has made a couple of yoga DVDs. Outgoing trainer Jillian Michaels released her own high-octane yoga DVD this spring.
Ward told Us Weekly that she plans to keep the weight off with five to six spinning workouts a week. We hope someone gives her a yoga mat!
