Russell Brand ‘invites Demi on yoga getaway’

Russell Brand is reportedly trying to convince Demi Moore to join him on a yoga getaway in India.

The British comedian is rumoured to have struck up a strong friendship with the Hollywood star, with the pair bonding over their love of yoga. They attend the same classes in Los Angeles and have also been seen enjoying days out with friends.

Demi struggled following her split from Ashton Kutcher in 2011, with the actor filing for divorce late last year. She is now trying to get her life back on track and Russell is apparently determined to lend her a hand.

"Russell and Demi have become friends since she started his yoga class," an insider told British newspaper The Sun.

"He remembers how much yoga and meditation helped him after his split with Katy Perry and feels it will help Demi too."

Russell is planning to go to India on a group yoga trip and has been working hard to convince Demi the vacation could help her too.

The comedian and his friends are apparently planning to spend time at The Ananda Spa in the Himalayas. While there they will indulge in yoga, learn about healthy eating and meditate regularly. Some of the group have been before and have nothing but praise for the spa, reportedly saying it is the perfect way to put past issues to bed.

"Spiritual retreats can be hard work, but if you’re in the right frame of mind they’re really beneficial," the source added.

Last week, Russell explained that he had invited his whole yoga class to his house for a session after their tutor was sacked. Around 100 people turned up and he gushed about how inspiring the experience was.

The 37-year-old also touched on his relationship with Demi, insisting he is just friends with the 50-year-old star.

"Demi Moore, as far as anything more physical goes - she’s just at yoga. I really like her, she’s really lovely. I just see her at yoga,” he said. “She’s an older lady, she’s incredibly beautiful but that’s that.”
