Back in December, we told you that Usher was growing in his yoga practice. He takes Vinyasa classes and does pretty good in them:

He’s only gotten better by practicing regularly. And now, he’s found such joy in doing yoga that he’s teaching it — abroad.

The 39-year-old singer has taken part in a two-day leadership summit in Stockholm called Brilliant Minds. Other big names are taking part in the symposium, including Jesse Williams, Rashida Jones and Steve Stoute, but he was the only celebrity present to teach a fitness class — not to speak or get on stage.

Usher led a class alongside yogi Rachel Brathen and (based on IG stories from the class) even assisted students in some poses. A performer in general, he definitely looked comfortable front and center:

While we’re not sure the story behind how one of the biggest stars in the world found himself teaching yoga classes, we’re certain it has something to do with trying to find peace. That seems to be the vibe we’re getting from his social media. He’s been traveling lately, enjoying the sights and sounds of places like Egypt and Sweden, as well as taking his physical fitness more and more serious:

With ongoing lawsuits involving allegations that he gave past sexual partners herpes, as well his recent split from wife Grace Miguel, you can’t blame the guy for seeking out solace. And what better way to take care of yourself mentally, physically and spiritually than by helping other people do the same?
