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" 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.

Tina refers to herself as an Inner Fitness Strategist, providing information and life strategies that build a strong, resilient inner Self capable of masterfully navigating life's challenges and opportunities. In particular, Tina's focus offers a lifeline to people who seek freedom from limiting internal patterns or who are looking for that “inner something” that a mate, career, money and a big house…and even the kids they deeply love…don’t provide. Through the Inner Fitness lens, Tina helps people to acknowledge the Self that lives inside of them, embrace their innate worth and learn practices to take their power back from old hurt and acquired limitations, in order to BE fully alive and thrive.
