Los Angeles, Feb 2 (IANS) British comedian Russell Brand says he let all his yoga classmates inside his house after their instructor was sacked.

"The yoga centre I had been going to sacked our instructor, so I have moved everyone into my house. I had 30 people doing it in my house," quoted Brand as saying.

The comedian has battled alcoholism and drug addiction in the past. However, the 37-year-old feels yoga is changing his life.

"I like the yoga thing, it's the dawning of a wonderful new era. It is proving to be an interesting new phase for me - yoga, transcendental consciousness, meditation and good-looking people. It's the dawning of a new Sixties," he said.
