When Sonia Jones Says Flow Into Sun Salutation, Paul Tudor Jones Says How High

These days, Sonia Jones, at 44, is a walking advertisement for the physical benefits of Ashtanga. She’s slim, but in a toned way rather than an annoyingly skinny one. Blonde and tan, she is warm and ebullient, more earthy Australian than uptight Greenwich grande dame. Every morning, she does her practice in a sunny studio—decorated with pictures of Jois and his family—in her Greenwich house, overlooking Long Island Sound. She’s so committed to Ashtanga that, if you’re in her life, you have to do it, too…All of Sonia’s children practice—from Chrissy, who is a student at Stanford, to Caroline, who is a singer-songwriter attending New York University, to Dorothy, who’s in high school, to Jack. (Sonia admits that she has to bargain with 15-year-old Jack by telling him that if he does his practice he doesn’t have to read.) Paul does Ashtanga, too, although he gets to take the summers off.

    A Vanity Fair expose for hedge funds wives is the same as having their picture in dot matrix on the front page of the "WSJ." It's an omen for trouble ahead. Lisa Maria, Raj^2, Bernie Madoff? Do I need to recount more?

    I'm afraid I must insist. You see, my wife, she has been most vocal on the subject of the pretzel monies. "Where's the money? "When are you going to get the money?" "Why aren't you getting the money now?" And so on.

  6. PTJ says:

    Too bad all that Ashtanga isn't getting rid of that cellulite and stretch mark buildup on her thighs…

    In 3 years Jack will blame his coke problem and bi-sexuality on forced Ashtanga.

  11. Guest says:

    In the article, they called her Sonia Tudor Jones and said she preferred to be called Sonia Jones. Is Tudor Jones a last name? Did she take both his middle and last names?

    All Billionaire's Wives have to pass the "ankles behind your head" test….it is a rule….and you'd know that if you weren't a bunch of starving dumb asses! Bwahahahaha!!!!

  13. Stealth Posing says:

    What you can see is that the Ashtanga is keeping it tight…44, 4 kids not too shabby. What only PTJ knows, she runs a similarly rigorous kegel regimen. paint mixer + vise etc. etc.
