It's no secret that Demi Moore is a devoted yogi so the next natural step? TheFIX has exclusively learnt she's quitting showbiz to become a yoga teacher.

The actress has recently completed a training course, specialising in Kundalini yoga, at Nine Treasures Yoga in West Hollywood.

A source close to Demi, 50, claims the decision came after film roles dried up, especially after her rehab dash in January last year.

"Demi is saying she'll do private lessons for high-end clients and she's really excited about her new career, complaining that acting roles just aren't coming her way," says a source.

"Friends and family know that her drug problem started as a way to stay skinny, as Demi put pressure on herself to keep up with Young Hollywood. Everyone wants her out of that world entirely. And now it looks like it’s happening."

The source also explains that there was one man in particular supporting Demi's new career choice…Brit comedian and close friend Russell Brand. Yeah, we didn't see that one coming either.

The pair bonded over their love of yoga, with Rusty previously inviting the A-Lister to a yoga retreat in India with him. Yeah right Russell, wink-wink, nudge-nudge.

"Demi is fully immersing herself in yoga studies because she's saying it's been a lifesaver in terms of getting her life back on track since her 'dark days' last year," says the source.

“Russell was really behind Demi's decision and was happy when she recently got her 200-hour yoga teacher certification."

Check out her hot bod below…we're guessing there won't be a short supply of Hollywood yogis signing up for her classes.
