The Side of Her We Rarely See: Marilyn Monroe The Yogi

Marilyn Monroe, who rose up as a mid-century sex symbol, is rarely thought of as a fitness icon. But in her interview with LIFE magazine in 1952, she revealed that she lifted weights daily, and in a 1948 set of black-and-white photos, she showed off some asanas.
This wasn’t a publicity stunt; Monroe was a devotee of yoga, and was photographed many times doing different yoga poses.
