Aubrey Plaza stays in shape by eating well and being active. She makes sure she stays mobile in her lifestyle to move her body at most times. Despite her crazy schedule, she sets some time for her exercise routine. In an interview, she was candid about what she does to stay fit and healthy at the same time. She said:
“I do a lot of stretches, though, and a lot of yoga. Ever see that Ingmar Bergman movie, Scenes from a Marriage? You know how in the morning, they get up and do the weird Swedish stretches? I like to think that they’re Swedish, anyway. I kind of do that, and I kind of improvise. Cardio bums me out, but I love yoga. I love anything that’s really calming. I think I hold a lot of tension in my body.”
