On again-off again Washington journalist and owner of Bikram Yoga Capitol Liz Glover says she’s seen an increase in attendance at her yoga classes ahead of White House Correspondents’ Dinner weekend. “Folks have been sweating at Bikram Yoga Capitol all week in preparation for WHCD festivities,” she tweeted Thursday.
Well, those gowns and tuxes aren’t getting any looser, are they?
“We’ve had some ladies come in to get their sweat on in anticipation of donning evening dresses for the big night,” Glover told FishbowlDC. She said among her clients getting in some extra downward-dog time is Jimmy LaSalvia, co-founder of the Gay Republican group GOProud.
LaSalvia told us that as a “homocon,” (“Washington’s ultimate outsider”) he won’t be going to the actual dinner but that he has… “enough to do” Saturday night to justify extra time at the yoga studio, which will in turn help him fit into his tuxedo pants.
“I’ve done Bikram Yoga for about eight years on and off,” he said. “It keeps me fit and ‘centered,’ and I enjoy getting to know the cool people who hang out at the studio.”
