Brand and Halliwell bond over yoga
Russell Brand and Geri Halliwell are reportedly getting serious - over their shared love of yoga.
The Sun said that the pair, who are said to be dating after they met at the Olympics closing ceremony, both love one position in particular, asana, which involves sitting still.
A friend was quoted as saying: "Geri has said they have a spiritual connection through yoga and they practise asana together.
"Russell is known for action between the sheets but he is actually very good at just sitting still in silence.
"It is something that has acted as a bond for he and Geri as their relationship blossoms."
Former Spice Girl Geri has released two yoga DVDs while Russell met his previous girlfriend at yoga classes in the US.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror reported that the couple's first date was a romantic picnic on London's Hampstead Heath, just days after the Olympics closing ceremony.
