Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev is obsessed with yoga. In fact, she loves doing any sort of workout that doesn’t involve going to the gym.
She recently sat down with Seventeen to talk about her winter break, counting calories, and what she would be doing if she weren’t an actress.

“Over Christmas, I had a break, and I didn’t go to the gym once, but I was in better shape than I am now, because for the first week, I was snowboarding every single day. I went skating, I went in my friend’s pool, and I did everything you can possibly think of that was wintery and sporty, but I didn’t feel like I was working out even once. I was just having fun.”
On Counting Calories
“People who are confident, happy, enthusiastic, vivacious and vibrant are the ones other people are generally attracted to. You’re drawn to those kinds of people—you’re not drawn to the person in the corner of the room counting calories with her shoulders slumped over.”
On What She Would Do If She Weren’t An Actress
“I could be a yoga instructor. I’m not certified, but I could do it. Once I did a class where the instructor didn’t show up, and I just went to the front and did it, and everyone followed. So I’ve done it before, and I love it.”
“I do a lot of yoga. I practice yoga three or four times a week. It’s an escape for me.”
