Russell Brand is opening his own yoga studio because he has slept with too many of the ladies in the one he attends.
The 37-year-old star is hoping to buy a place in Beverly Hills, California so he can escape the lovers he has met in yoga classes earlier this year.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Since he split with Katy Perry, Russell has had sex or flirtations with quite a few of the women he used to meet in yoga classes.
''It's become quite awkward for him because now he has a new girlfriend and doesn't want to be running into former conquests every day.''
The insider continued: ''He decided that buying his own studio would be the perfect solution and has his heart set on buying one on Melrose Avenue. If all goes well the place should be his by the end of the summer.''
Russell split with singer Katy, 27, last year, is now dating 30-year-old Isabella Brewster.
He also met the former talent agent in a yoga class.
Sources said: ''No-one thought Russell would jump into a serious relationship so quickly. But he's surprised himself with Isabella. They've really hit it off. They are already talking about children.''
