The Secrets of Jennifer Aniston’s Amazing Arms – from Her Yoga Instructor

08/18/2014 at 08:00 AM ET

We all know the secret behind Jennifer Aniston‘s great hair — Living Proof products and her stylist Chris McMillan. As for her amazing body (reminder, she’s 45), it’s all about her frequent yoga practices. We caught up with Aniston’s long-time instructor Mandy Ingber for all the details on the star’s dedicated workout routine.

“If you do vinyasa flows, it’s actually one of the best things you can do for your arms because you are doing multiple push-ups,” Ingber told PEOPLE while promoting her collaboration with Silk soy milk. “The reason that Jennifer has tone, but she’s also lean has to do with [the fact that] when we do the flow, her own body weight is incorporated.”

A vinyasa flow involves moving through three yoga poses in a fast progression — plank, chaturanga and upward facing dog — all of which are weight-bearing poses. Ingber does her yoga routine with Aniston about three times a week.

“The funny thing is people think you need to do so much in order to be fit, and the truth is you don’t have to do so much, you just have to do it consistently, and that’s really the key with Jennifer Aniston,” Ingber explained. “She is one of the most consistent people that I know in terms of moderation in health and diet and physical activity.”

A healthy diet is just as important to maintaining muscle tone as exercise is, according to fitness guru.

“Your arms will be defined if you lean towards less of a carb-heavy diet and more to a protein-based [diet],” she explained.

Ingber’s advice and yoga routines are now accessible to everyone thanks to her new Yogalosophy app, available on iTunes.

“It has a pose of the day, a recipe of the day, a playlist of the day, and an attitude or intention of the day, because I really do believe a huge aspect of health and wellness is where you put your attitude,” she said. “You can incorporate [the poses] into your actual workouts, and you can create your own routine.”

Alison Sweeney: It’s Important To Be a Good Role Model For My Kids

Alison Sweeney: It’s Important To Be a Good Role Model For My Kids

The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney recently spoke with Celebrity Baby Scoop about her newest novel, getting a good night’s sleep, fitness routine, and summertime with her two children, Ben and Megan.

CBS: You have recently teamed up with Sleep Number. How much does a good night’s sleep affect our overall health? What information does the new Sleep IQ technology provide the user? And, how is that helpful for helping them lead a more healthy life?

AS: “A healthy lifestyle is all about fitness, nutrition and sleep. For years I talked about needing a good night’s rest and now I’m able to achieve that with the Sleep Number SleepIQ technology on my Sleep Number bed. I’ve learned when it’s better for me to work out, how my sleep patterns work and the right setting for my body to have the best night’s sleep. Because of a good night’s sleep, I’m able to have a better workout, be more productive and feel better throughout my day.”

CBS: Health and fitness is on everyone’s mind these days. What tips have you learned for maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle from your time on The Biggest Loser?

AS: “The main thing I’ve adopted is the importance of making it an overall healthy lifestyle as my way of life. It’s not about a diet or a short term goal, it is making the right choices each and every day. There are of course times to cheat and have some treats but those are the days that I try to get in an extra hard workout or plan one for the next day to still feel good about all of my choices.”

CBS: What does your personal health regime look like? What keeps your motivated? Do you feel pressure to be a good role model to your kids?

AS: “Being a good role model to my kids is the most important thing in the world to me. I find that showing them my healthy lifestyle of eating right and enjoying workouts sets a great example for them, and gets them excited for their fitness. I try to work out every day and to eat healthy foods, and to always get a good night’s rest.”

CBS: As a mom, you want your kids to lead a healthy lifestyle, how do you insure your kids eat right, exercise and get enough sleep?

AS: “My kids don’t know anything different. They love their vegetables and don’t really know fast food. They love getting me ingredients from our garden and they help me get dinner together in a way that has them invested in the meal too. So it’s that much easier to get them to enjoy eating foods that they helped prepare. We hike, play tag and do other fun activities together. Plus they know what time bedtime is to ensure a good rest.”

CBS: What did Benjamin and Megan do over the summer? Do they have any favorite summer activities? Any special family traditions to celebrate the end of summer?

AS: “We have such fun as a family during the summer. We’re constantly being active outside, taking vacations when we can and just enjoying time together. The kids have been in camp a bit but it’s more about our quality time together.”

CBS: Do the kids like school? What are their favorite subjects?

AS: “My kids do like school and they love to learn things. Ben is really into science and Megan loves theater and performing (wonder where she gets that!).”

CBS: Tell us a little about your decision to leave Days and take on a directing role at GH. What prompted it? How hard was it to part with your character of 21 years?

AS: “After 7 years of hosting The Biggest Loser AND being Sami on Days, I realized that I needed to make a change to have more time with my family and to pursue other career ambitions that don’t require the same time commitments. I continue to love hosting The Biggest Loser (which returns on September 11 to NBC) and directing is a passion as well. I’m hoping to direct again at Days soon and loved being at GH to direct there as well. Plus, I continue to love writing and am currently working on my third novel.”

CBS: Congratulations on your new novel! What inspired you to write ‘Scared Scriptless’? Tell us a little about Maddy, is she based on anyone in particular?

AS: “Maddy is a compilation of several people in my life, starting with me! Many of the characters in this book are based on friends I work with and some characters you recognize from my first novel, The Star Attraction. I love the challenge of great storytelling and I love writing the stories that come to me, especially since I’ve spent my whole career telling the stories of other writers’ as an actress. I love to read and my goal is to have these books be ones others love to read for a break from their hectic lives.”
