Paul McCartney is an English singer, songwriter, and musician who rose to popularity as a member of the Beatles, where he played bass guitar and shared primary songwriting and lead vocal duties with John Lennon. The Beatles were always fascinated by Indian culture, and they even wrote a song called ‘Dehradun.’ Paul recently showed off his head-stand skills.

Sir Paul McCartney, 80, is not going down without a fight. On September 30, the Beatles legend shared a photo of himself doing a headstand on Twitter. “The headstand is my show-off moment when I’m in the gym… I was once told by a yoga teacher that it keeps you young,” the “Let It Be” singer wrote.

Paul was accompanied in the photo by his adorable dog, who sat on the blue yoga mat while his owner performed the incredible move. For the yoga session, the 80-year-old wore black athletic shorts, a white t-shirt, and Nike shoes with white Nike socks. The post was also inspired by the “Grandude’s Green Submarine” episode of the YouTube show A Cosmic Kids Yoga Adventure, according to the tweet.

The episode was inspired by Paul’s own children’s book, Grandude’s Green Submarine, which will be released in September 2021. Paul also shared his thoughts on his personal yoga practice on his official website during National Yoga Month in September. “I like yoga, and I practice when I can. I think I first got into it when we were with the Maharishi in Rishikesh, in India,” he said.


There was a bit of it there and there were people – some of his colleagues – who were very good at it, and I got a bit interested. Through the years I’ve just learned a couple of tricks, like a headstand!

He also informed the outlet that in previous years, he would get together with his Hamptons friends and practice in a group. “We called ourselves ‘The Yoga Boys’ even though we were old crocks! It was fun – we met up a few times a week and did it together. In fact, the picture that I put up online recently of John Eastman and I was at one of those sessions. He was a ‘Yoga Boy’,” Paul shared. When asked if he enjoys any other poses beside the headstand, the singer stated that it is his primary move.

Not really. The headstand is my show-off moment when I’m in the gym and there are a lot of guys doing big weights and I’m doing weedy weights.

While other members of the gym are lifting huge weights, Paul stated that his headstand continues to impress them.

I can’t do what they’re doing as they’re flexing their big muscles, so at the end of my session I finish off with the headstand and they often come over and say, ‘Hey, that’s pretty impressive’! It’s pathetic really! No, it’s good to do and I was once told by a yoga teacher that it keeps you young.

Paul continues to work on his music in addition to yoga. His most recent album, McCartney III Imagined, was released in 2021. While The Beatles, of whom he was a member along with John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, will release the “Super Deluxe” version of their album, Revolver, on Oct. 28.
