we all do yoga

just people -- doing yoga, sharing yoga, living yoga.

note -- i post lots of inspirational pictures from tumblr, flickr, etc... if your picture is here, it's because you rock my socks, and are going to inspire many more people to get out there and yoga their butt off. but, if, for some reason, your picture here and you want it down, just say so and voila! all gone.

Hello tumblr-verse — I am working on a project for my yoga teacher training about making yoga classes more accessible for all bodies. This is a project near and dear to me because I am considered “clinically obese” and know what it’s like to be excluded, to be the only one in class who is not a size 4 lululemon. As part of my project, I am hoping to lead my presentation with a discussion of why this is important by raising awareness about the conscious/subconscious discrimination against fat bodies in exercise/yoga classes. I would love to share some examples about —

  1. Stories about being discriminated against directly/consciously by your yoga/exercise teacher or fellow students.
  2. Stories about the off-handed remarks or actions that people may have taken in yoga/exercise class that were also discriminatory and hurtful.
  3. Are there any reasons you have not yet tried yoga / exercise class that relate to your size? Such as the way that local classes are marketed?
  4. Is there anything that an instructor has done or could do that would make you feel more welcome, more likely to return?
  5. If you are an active yoga practitioner and have a larger body, what is your favorite type of practice? Your favorite pose? (There’s definitely a strong myth out there that bodies ONLY like one kind of very gentle practice, at least at my local studio!).

If you have a story related to any of the above,please message me privately. I think my discussion of the work of people like Anna Guest-Jelley will be far more powerful if I can make it clear to my fellow trainees all the ways that the environment is actually hurtful to those with larger bodies.

Please reblog!

So I suffer from mild insomnia, is there anything I could do exercise wise to help sleep?

Like a yoga routine or exercises I can do in my room!?
