Yoga er faktisk en af de bedste måder at sprede det kropspositive budskab på til verden. Den udfordrende aktivitet er på alle måder inkluderende – da den er egnet til alle kropstyper og aldre. Når du dyrker yoga, får du det desuden bedre med dig selv på flere planer: I kroppen, sindet og sjælen. De forskellige stillinger kræver udholdenhed og styrke - hvilket som bekendt ikke kun er forbeholdt ultraslanke personer - og det er med til at forbedre bl.a. hjertets funktion.
På Instagram er der mange inspirerende hashtags som f.eks. #plussizeyoga og #plussizeyogi og vi har håndplukket et udvalg, der måske også kan få dig i gang med Krigeren, Katten og Den Stående Bjergstilling? Se også videoen nederst med amerikanske Valerie Sagun, kvinden bag succesen Big Gal Yoga, som ud over at være en top motiverende yoga-instruktør også er bl.a. installationskunstner og keramiker.
How often do we hold ourselves back from doing something we want to do because we don't want to "look bad" doing it or we think we don't look the part? Hands down my favorite Instagram account right now is @nolatrees - she's putting a whole new spin on yoga life showing its really for EVERY body. This girl has inspired me and I know she'll do the same for you🙏🏻
I use to hate this pose. I hated the way I looked in it. I saw myself at my worst in this pose. Even when I was lifted my. Candy juicy thighs grazing the grass. I hated it. But things change. I've changed. Today I looked at my photo and saw none of that. I saw my arms stacked well. I saw my back curved and my booty popped. I saw beauty where there once was self loathing. I was reminded change is possible, and often we don't even know it has happened until we are presented with a situation of how we once felt. Today's host #oneloveopenshearts host is @jaaackjack.

Even when I'm feeling icky, #inversions make me happy. Also, always a proud moment when I manage to convince myself to move far enough away from the wall for this variation. Maybe 2017 is my year to break up with the wall?? #pinchamayurasana #forearmstand #youcandoit #strongisnotasize #yogaforeveryone #yogaforeverybody #supporiveyoga
It's amazing how much can change when you do. Most days I'm still in disbelief over the shift I've experienced. When you change how you see, how you talk to yourself, what lens you choose to look through, your whole reality changes too. Maybe it's scary to know we actually do have more control than we think - not always over what happens but always how we react and what we do next. I often think, what if I never gave myself the chance to try? My whole world shifted because I did. Imagine that. Photo by @michelesuits
I don't yoga as often as I should. My work commute, new business, wedding planning, and spending time with my fiance have really cut into my yoga time. However, I so love my @fractal.9 leggings and put them on every time I yoga. They really are the best yoga leggings around. Use GRETCHEN15 for 15% off!
