“There’s literally sweat on my legs” – Willow Smith‘s mind-blowing and seriously-advanced yoga moves got themselves challenged ahead of the weekend. The 19-year-old singer and daughter to Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith updated her Instagram with a reminder that she doesn’t do yoga for the fancy hashtag – the “Whip My Hair” singer was delivering some of the most advanced moves around, but even Willow couldn’t get past her own limitations. Seemingly, for this teen, it was sweaty legs. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video shared with Willow’s 6.9 million followers. The star, recently in the news for pulling down her spandex to reveal shredded abs, was out to showcase some upper-body strength here. Likewise, to remind Instagram that the zen and side crow-like poses aren’t always what they seem.
The post opened with Willow balancing her legs and on the floor while in shorts and socks. Steely strength and pure focus extended into the video, seeing Smith carefully prepare, then repeat the movement, with some help from tagged ChinkyLilThang.

“There’s sweat on my legs. There’s literally sweat on my legs.”
Willow, then collapsing down, offered fans a little more “reality,” plus a better view of her white shorts, little blue sports bra, and fun yellow tie-dye socks. She lay on the floor panting heavily and saying:
“See? See?! This is the real life! There’s Instagram and this is reality,” Willow said while raising herself a little, then plonking her entire body back down on the floor.
Willow, who has wowed fans with a handstand with her wrists turned backward, now sees her Instagram followers with a dropped jaw.
“Willow. You are really showing your strength! You’re making me want to start yoga,” one wrote, with a popular comment calling the star “unreal.”
Willow has been public about her yoga journey, which came as she decided to ditch marijuana – yoga basically just happened. Speaking on mom Jada Pinkett-Smith’s “Red Table Talk” Facebook Watch series, Willow opened up. See what she had to say below.
Willow told 49-year-old mom and fellow fitness junkie Jada: “And I know this sounds cheesy but around the time I stopped smoking, I started doing a lot of yoga and I just excelled because I was putting all of my energy into that, I wasn’t doing anything else,” adding:
“And I was like, ‘Wow, what if I was doing this with everything?’ And then it really made me think, ‘What have I been missing?”
