5 Reasons Why Yoga for Curvy Folks Rocks
by Anna Guest-Jelley


One thing you should know about me is: I’m curvy.  Yep, probably just how you’re thinking.  I’ve got more to love in the 3 B’s department: boobs, belly and butt.
 
One other thing you should know: I’m also a yoga student and teacher.  3 B’s and all. 
 
Being curvy in a yoga class is an interesting experience.  Getting strange looks is pretty typical.  So is being asked if you’re new.  Sometimes people are rude, but most of the time they do something else that’s even more insidious: they just ignore you.  I’ve been practicing yoga for over twelve years, and more often than not teachers just either pretend like I’m not there or don’t offer me modifications if they see I’m struggling.
 
For years, I internalized this as my problem.  That my body was what was wrong.  That when I lost x amount of weight, I’d finally be able to truly experience the benefits of yoga.  That I couldn’t expect my teacher to know how to help me access the poses in a way that would work for me--or that it was even a possibility.
 
Over time, though, and after I decided to do a yoga teacher training, I started figuring out that there are safe and accessible ways for me to practice yoga with the body I have today.  No waiting, no agonizing, no shaming.  
 
Yoga for curvy folks rocks for so many reasons; here are just five:
 
1. Yoga for Every Body: This is many yogis’ favorite phrase, and making yoga inclusive of curvy bodies can help make it a reality.
 
2. Strengthening Community: Diversifying who practices yoga not only strengthens the yoga community, it also grows our local communities as people connect through their practice.
 
3. Body Positivity: Yoga can be supportive of shaping a positive body image for people of all shapes and sizes!
 
4. More to Learn: When we have many different people in our yoga classes, we can all learn from each other’s unique yet shared experiences. 
 
5. Beauty: Looking around a room of all kinds of people practicing yoga is a beautiful sight to see!
 
As yoga continues to grow, there will be more and more opportunities to make it welcoming of a variety of bodies and abilities.  And I think that rocks!
