Liam Gallagher takes up yoga

Liam Gallagher has taken up yoga.

The 43-year-old rocker turned to the therapeutic form of exercise earlier this year to help him stay calm throughout his heartbreaking and expensive divorce from his ex-wife Nicole Appleton, and it seems the popular meditation technique has rubbed off on him as he's keen to stick at it permanently.

A source explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Liam got into yoga while on holiday in Belize in January. He has met a lot of people who are into yoga and now he wants to give it a go himself. He is really determined to stick at it."

The Oasis frontman was introduced to the breathing technique by his girlfriend Debbie Gwyther, 33, who was on a mission to get her beau in shape, but it seems it's now become a serious part of their lives as they are looking at booking a spiritual retreat to India over the next coming months.

The insider said: "Liam and Debbie are travelling the world together. They recently went to Paris and are hoping to go on a spiritual trip. Liam is really up for it."

Meanwhile, Liam has had a stressful few months after Nicole, with whom he has son Gene, 14, filed for divorce when it emerged in August 2013 that he had fathered a child with with US journalist Liza Ghorbani behind her back.

The legal proceedings cost a reported £800,000 and a judge recently ruled the former couple, who got married in 2008, should split their £11 million fortune.
