About Big Yoga
After teaching Yoga for about 25 years, my body began to change, and so did my Yoga practice. With more curves to accomodate, and belly and boobs getting in the way, I began to adapt classical Yoga postures for my comfort. I was inspired to share what I was learning about my body with others like me, who may not look like the standard Yoga model, but who are interested in staying fit and healthy regardless of their size. The result was my first DVD, Big Yoga Hatha 1, a 60 minute practice that Dr. Dean Ornish has called “invigorating and restorative”.
My new book, Big Yoga: A Simple Guide for Bigger Bodies, was published in spring of 2010, from Square One Publishers. The new DVD, Big Yoga Flex-Ability, was released a few weeks later. It focuses on toning the muscles that support the joints, and freeing the joints of the toxins that make us stiff. It’s ideal for anyone who is healing the body from injuries, or folks who are challenged by extra weight, stiffness, or coach-potato-ism.
