Ellie Goulding thinks yoga is an incredible drug

Ellie Goulding claims she does yoga instead of drugs.

The 'Burn' hitmaker admits she's addicted to the traditional Indian discipline and can't go a day without an intense workout session.

The 27-year-old singer said: "I get the biggest high when I do yoga. People don't realize that there's such an incredible drug in life that doesn't involve any substances."

The British beauty added: "My training is part of my life. It's something I need to do every day, because it affects my mood, my fitness, even my mind-set onstage."

Ellie - who is dating McFly star Dougie Poynter, who sought treatment in rehab for alcohol and drug addiction in 2011 - also enjoys running on a regular basis, even when she's touring, because it helps her to feel more in control of her life.

She explained: "I don't feel emotional when I run, and that's what I love about it. It keeps me present more than anything else."

She also told Self magazine that exercise helps her to stay grounded despite her huge success.

She said: "I've gained slightly different priorities while being on this planet, and one of them is to respect my body and to do as much as I can with it while I'm here."
