Katie Couric Stops By The Oasis, Shows Off Her Moves

Katie Couric stopped by the Oasis today to film a segment, but took a quick break to find her center.


And it turns out that Katie is no amateur yogi, as she gamely kicked off her shoes, flipped upside down, and showed a room full of yoga instructors, entranced onlookers, and journalists exactly how it's done.

And then swings up into a headstand...


Then Katie lowers herself into a pike headstand. All by herself. Really.


And then returns to a headstand. Look at that form!


Lastly, she celebrates.


After her acrobatics, I caught up with Katie for a quick chat.

You obviously have a very busy schedule - how do you find time to unplug?
The main thing is to lead a balanced life. For example, I make sure to make time for family and friends.

What do you do to relax and recharge?
Any number of things from reading a book or excercising to doing something with my girls.

Clearly you're an experienced yogi. How often do you practice? What benefits do you get out yoga?
I've practiced yoga for a while, but not as often as I'd like. It's a great way to relax and exercise at the same time.

What are your thoughts on the Oasis?
It was great. I wish I could have stayed longer!

Any thoughts on the convention and this election?
I'm looking forward to a meaningful election and continuing to expand the ways we interact with our audience on
