Young & Restless’ Brytni Sarpy Talks Yoga, “A Bit of an Obsession for Me”

One-half of popular couple both off and on canvas.

Brytni Sarpy is well known for her role as Valerie Spencer on ABC’s General Hospital, a role she held from March 2015 to March 2019, before she made the switch over to CBS’ Young and the Restless. Since she’s been portraying Elena Dawson. Currently, in Elena’s world, she’s torn between Nathan Hastings (Sean Dominic) and Devon Hamilton (Bryton James). In reality, she and James are living together, happily in a condo they purchased together last year.

Sarpy was born in California. She has worked as a personal trainer and did a little commercial work as an athletic print model, which is no surprise when she told Soap Opera Digest in an interview, “It’s safe to say yoga has become a bit of an obsession for me.” Visiting her Instagram page, you can tell she enjoys exercise. She asked her fans back in January, “This season I’ll be working on…

1. Getting off the wall… it’s my favorite crutch 🙄 ( see [the] second slide)

2. Perfecting the basics… chaturanga, downward dog… my hips and shoulders are hypermobile, so proper placement is really a challenge for me.

3. Strengthening my upper body 💪🏽

How about you… any new fitness goals…?

The actress dished on the movie that most chokes her up, which is Meet Joe Black. “Anthony Hopkins is so incredible to watch and the father/daughter relationship reminds me of my relationship with my dad. I also love the theme and exploration of death,” she confesses. “It’s what I have been most afraid of for most of my life, and there are some profound revelations about the topic.”
