Alec Baldwin Loves Yoga! (Teachers)

in Celebriyogis, YD News, Yoga Pop

This just in! NYC yoga gosssssip…

The perfect makings for a blind item!: This acting brother in his 50s is now calling NYC 20-something yoga teacher his life ‘Rock’.

Yes, the rumor mill is achurning with news that 53-year-old actor Alec Baldwin is sharing straws with Yoga Vida studio director Hilaria Thomas, 28. They were photographed together at last month’s Carnegie Hall 120th anniversary after-party at The Plaza and now we hear he’s taking her to the Tonys. Thomas won’t comment, but a Baldwin rep neither confirms nor denies. “He’s actually been dating Russell Brand down in South Florida,” his rep quipped. Perfect! A yogi sandwich!

So does he practice the yoga? Maybe! Yoga Vida just opened their second NYC location in Noho, literally 8 blocks away from their Union Square studio. Jack Donaghy would have to be all over anything doing that well. For his sake we should hope he gets in a little practice before his morning shower scotch. We’ll keep an eye out for the new fall show lineup on Kabletown!

UPDATE: A 2006 interview via Starpulse sheds light on Alec’s taste for yoga, er…instructors:

“All my friends are yoga people, my brother Billy was heavy into yoga – it helped him.

“So I took yoga this summer. I took what I call ‘middle-aged-white-guy yoga.’ They have some Indian name for that, I don’t know what it is. I find that yoga instructors have become the new nanny’s – the woman you leave your wife for – your yoga instructor.

“I’ll see a friend of mine who’s taking yoga and I’ll say, ‘How’s yoga going?’ And he’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s great and you should see the a** on this woman I’m taking yoga from.’ It’s really what it’s all about!”

  • Wow! I think I saw them together in October at the Hamptons International Film Festival, too. If it’s in The Post, it must be true! (Kidding, but not really…)

    No doubt doing some partner yoga – try this pose: Ewwwstrasana

  • would have been a lot more interesting if he was dating a yoga teacher his age or older…

    who cares if she’s a yoga teacher? it’s just another older man-younger woman story….YAWN

    I think we should be very happy for this new couple. I think they will make beautiful music together and will light up the sky with their love for each other’s faces. I think that they are deserving of each other for they both exhibit similar traits and nuances that leave no stretch for the imagination.

    Once a jerk, always a jerk, no matter who they end up with. I know this from experience. :)
