Lest fans think that’s just a dream, Giudice, 43, says she has real plans for how to execute her lofty goal.
Giudice has plans to become an accredited yoga instructor after falling in love with the practice during her yearlong stint in prison, which she chronicled in her new memoir, Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, written with PEOPLE’s K.C. Baker.
“I want to come out with my own yoga DVD tape, my own yoga line,” she explains. “If you put out what you want, sometimes you get it. Never say, ‘I can’t do that,’ because then you’re already bringing yourself down.”

Since leaving prison, where she did daily morning yoga sessions, Giudice says it’s been hard to find the time to meditate and get in a yoga practice, but she has found her preferred studio, Nirvana, in Boonton, New Jersey.
“I’m excited. I love yoga. It really changed my life. It really got me through this whole ordeal – it really did – being there and everything. I can’t live without it now,” she says.
“Even if I just do a down dog for a little bit, it makes me feel good.”
