The problem with (most) yoga studios
When you’re plus size, yoga is intimidating. Plus size myself, I know it’s hard to shake the awkwardness of being the biggest person in a yoga class.
Too many of us with large bodies feel left out of yoga.
It seems like standard yoga studios don’t cater to our bodies. It’s frustrating to figure out poses that simply don’t work for bigger bellies and/or other body parts. Smaller-size teachers, while well-intentioned, don’t take the time to learn what makes us comfortable. It’s not their fault though- it’s hard to understand what a big body needs. And yoga simply hasn’t factored us in.
But that’s a shame, especially as two-thirds of American’s are plus size. There are a lot of people who would LOVE to try yoga…but can you blame us for our hesitate? I want to help you see that yoga CAN be something you enjoy, YES even in a plus size body.
Any maybe you’re reading this with skepticism – I totally get it.
