When you aren’t singing and performing, what is Freda Payne up to? What are your leisure activities?

“I go to Equinox and workout, but I mainly take the yoga classes. I started doing yoga 34 years ago with Bikram Choudhury. I started out doing Hot Yoga for years and then I discovered 6 years ago that I could no longer take the heat anymore. That was when I started taking yoga at Equinox. Yoga relaxes you, takes the stress out of your body and balances you out. I also like going to the movies when there’s a good movie to see and sometimes I play a little bit of tennis.”

  1. That’s a great find! I’ve seen a few rare photos of POC in yoga poses lately. Great to see!
