I want to design a t-shirt that says:
Yoga makes me feel like a badassana!
Every day I get better at the poses: doing them, holding them longer, lifting a little higher. And unlike other workouts, after doing yoga I feel how I've used muscles in every part of my body. Turns out, you don't have to do cardio and lift weights: yoga is both at the same time. I mean, I do miss hip-hop cardio class at NYSC... but it has been ages and the bitches in that class were fierce when I was 24. How hard would it be for me to keep up now?! I smell a video...
Anyway, doing this yoga workout 5 days in a row has really put me back in touch with my "instrument," which is such a barfy word, and something no self-respecting comic would talk about having or using. But given that I have so much classical training in acting, voice and dance, I'm realizing how valuable it is to open up your rib cage and take a truly deep breath, even if you're only singing in the shower.
Also, I love when Eva says, "Tadasana!" (Mountain pose.) It makes me feel like I did something magical.
