Russian actress Indra Devi is credited with bringing yoga to youth-obsessed Hollywood. She opened the Indra Devi Yoga Studio in 1947 and taught celebrities like Greta Garbo, Eva Gabor, and Gloria Swanson. Even Marilyn Monroe was known to own one of her books. Yoga practitioners of the 50s didn’t have Lululemon yet, but they kept it quite stylish with their perfectly coiffed hair.
