Katie Couric, 64, is showing off the hard work she has put into her Pilates practice in her latest Instagram snap. Rocking a gorgeous electric blue Alo Yoga matching set, Katie is doing an impressive headstand, showing off her toned abs and core strength.

“Yes. This is me. 😊 #takethat64 #alo #pilatescooldown #sendmeyourheadstands #simonebiles ❤️,” she captioned the pic.

Katie tagged her Pilates instructor, Ashley Patten, in the pic. And she posted about her work with Ashley in April 2021, noting that she helped her “rediscover her waist.”

On her website, Katie interviewed Ashley, and shared that during the pandemic she took up Pilates. In February 2021 she had been practicing for six months already. (Which means she’s been practicing for 11 months!)

“You’re a natural! You’ve been so consistent and hard working. Every week we get more in and make things more challenging,” Ashley said about Katie.

On top of her Pilates practice, Katie also follows a pegan diet, which blends the dietary approaches of the paleo and vegan diets. Katie started the eating plan during the pandemic in March 2021. (She previously tried the keto diet.)

“It’s been very stressful, so people who are stress eaters have more stress and are responding by eating more,” Katie said in a discussion she hosted on IGTV in late February, via Eating Well. “I have a sweet tooth and have been eating way too many sweets. I just want a reset and I want to feel better and have more energy.”

Looks like the new plan is working out for her!
