Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow stepped out this week to support the Bent on Learning charity.

Bent on Learning offers yoga and meditation to students in New York City public schools and youth centers.

It might sound luxurious, but most of these schools and centers don’t have the funding to support physical education programs and are not being taught how to reduce stress and improve concentration, self-esteem and overall health simply by exercising and forming healthy habits.

The star said, ‘I started practicing yoga 20 years ago with Eddie Stern and it changed my life, so when he asked me to come… I felt I owe him so much… I think New York City public schools need some TLC, and I think yoga is a nice way to get centered. It is a great idea.’

Donna Karan and Russell Simmons were also at the Bent On Learning charity event with Gwyneth Paltrow.
