Find Your Flow: Yoga for Larger Bodies

This 6-week series will help you build a yoga practice that is specific to your unique body. Together we will explore different variations of traditional yoga poses, ideas for transitioning from one pose to another, and how tools and props can be used to enhance your practice.

This class aims to empower you to advocate for your own body and its needs and to confidently enter any yoga class with tips to help you feel successful in tailoring the practice to suit you.

If you have ever been interested in yoga but worried that your body may not be able to do many of the poses, or that you will feel out of place in a yoga class due to the size of your body or fitness level, this is the class for you. We will learn together why yoga is much more about what a pose feels like than what a pose looks like by following the sensations in your body as the greatest teacher in a yoga practice.

*NEW*

I am happy to offer a higher level of support as an add-on to registration in this series which includes two 45-minute one-on-one sessions, help in setting personal movement goals, and weekly check-ins about those goals.

Sometimes what keeps us from sticking with a movement practice is the limiting beliefs about our body that movement can bring up for us.  Often we think we just don't have enough willpower, but it may be more about needing skills to mindfully work through these body beliefs. These one on one sessions are designed to help you navigate through any beliefs or body shame that come up in class, to dive deeper into any questions you have about how to work with your body specifically, and to start to create a new narrative about your body, what it is capable of, and your relationship to it.

If you already have an established yoga practice and are looking for more, check out Diving Deeper into Yoga for Larger Bodies.

Cost: $289 for class + one-on-one support; $139 class only
