Hollywood veteran Tina Lifford plays the vivacious breakout character Aunt Vi on the critically acclaimed television drama, Queen Sugar. She has played over 100 characters in her long-standing career, including the CIA Director on Scandal and the mother-in-law on Parenthood. Equally accomplished behind the camera, Tina is the respected playwright of THE CIRCLE, a play about how seven diverse women navigate the choppy waters of life together, author of The Little Book of BIG LIES (to be released by Harper Collins, November 2019), and CEO of The Inner Fitness Project, a personal development network committed to making the practices and benefits of “Inner Fitness” as familiar, well understood and accessible as those of physical fitness. The drive behind Tina’s commitment to inner fitness dates back to a debilitating encounter with stage fright in the fifth grade that she had to overcome in order to live the life of her dreams. Her journey uplifts, educates and inspires. However, more importantly, it identifies exercises, skills and practices that strengthen the inner Self and impacts overall inner health and wellbeing in the way physical exercise strengthens the physical body. Her aim: fostering a stronger, healthier, more resilient, thriving inner Self, healthier families and communities. Her motto: Let's be fully allive!
