Tina Fey: Too Busy To Work Out, Will Yoga in Her Grave

in Celebriyogis, YD News

tina-fey-harpers-bazaarSister satire, Tina Fey, has shot up the ranks of superlady stardom, with what is it now four thousand Emmys? Something like that. This working girl is no slouch on an expanding To-do’s, but when it comes to fitness, yoga is on the bucket list. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Tina describes her typical daily routine:

“Work, come home, play, kid bounce, work again, go to bed.” She has thought about yoga, even done it a couple times. “But,” she notes, “even yoga classes go on 80 or 90 minutes.” Not for Tina the ethos of Gwyneth Paltrow or Madonna, with their two hours plus of bendiness a day. “You will still die,” she observes. “I’ll do grave yoga. Someone can come and stretch me in my grave.”

Oh we know. SO much to do! So little time! *deep breath* We hear you Tina, and sometimes even find ourselves echoing the phrase “We’ll sleep when we’re dead!” but then remember we’re yogadorks and basically die every day, in savasana that is. But are we being selfish?

“While it would be great to work out an hour a day, there is something inherently sort of selfish about it. I can’t do it,” says Tina.

Hey now, self care. Everybody’s doing it, and no one’s gonna judge you for it. Even your doppleganger Sarah Palin takes time for fitness and look how busy she is. er, nevermind. Anyway, there’s always time for yoga…(pssst…we’re doing it right now). Besides, yoga class is the perfect fodder for hilarity. Try hanging upside down and kicking your legs into the air with a bunch of fellow grown men and women in an attempt at handstand and not laugh about it. tina-fey-yogaThe real funny part? The more you practice, the more you notice how much time there actually is.

And you know what? We’re not sure we totally believe the non-workout non-yoga claims Ms. Fey…is that ardha uttanasana you’re doing there? mhmm.

  • I love Tina Fey.

    I’m so glad you keep us up-to-date on these celebrity goings-on, so I don’t have to pore through all those fashion and entertainment magazines any more searching for Yoga references.

    I’ve cancelled all my subscriptions.

  • Sounds to me that Tina has what my teacher calls an “inappropriate relationship to time”.

    Tina, you’re awesome, but there’s nothing wrong with a little downtime. And in your industry lady, that might be called touching base with reality! 😉

  • Why it is an acceptable “waste of time” to go running or swimming, to play a weekly round of golf, or even to see a movie … but not to do yoga?

    Yoga does still strike people as somehow more self-indulgent than other pastimes or hobbies or serious endeavors.

    Whatever. We know bettah!
