We have a hard enough time balancing just standing on a boat. But as a committed yogi, Patrick rocks a teeny bikini while remaining perfectly balanced in a shoulder stand.

Racing may be a male dominated sport, but Patrick proves you can be strong and sexy. Too bad her racing attire doesn’t showcase her toned biceps, like at this photoshoot! (If that doesn't make you want to hit the gym, maybe these Celebrities Who Aren't Afraid to Break a Sweat will.)

Patrick’s sculpted core looks just as good upside down as it does right side up. She dedicated time to mastering not just Lotus Pose, but Lotus Pose in a headstand! (We get that mastering a headstand is intimidating. Learn How to Overcome Your Fear of Inversions.)
