Actress Nina Dobrev is planning to open up her own yoga studio.

The Vampire Diaries star insists her life has changed for the better since taking up the mental, physical and spiritual exercise and she is eager to help others find peace on the mat too.

She tells America's Cosmopolitan magazine, "I want to open my own yoga studio. Planning construction and looking at properties is fun. I'm using a different part of my brain.

"You know that feeling when you use a different muscle? You're excited to be exercising it, but you get a little sore! Yoga changed my life. Hopefully, it will do that for others."
