[DC] The World’s Curviest Yoga Class – May 21, 2011
Whether you are an advanced yogi or a squeaky clean newbie you are going to LOVE this class. I’ve travelled across country to spend time in yoga classes taught by my favorite instructors and have made it a point to bring friends whenever possible.
The great thing about yoga is that it’s tough and liberating. It opens you up on. I tell my friends about yoga that a REALLY good teacher will provide a great environment for EVERY participant to be sufficiently embarrassed I guess that’s a double statement 1) we’ve got a really good teacher, and 2) be prepared to face embarrassment and push past it.
Which brings us to the name, “The World’s Curviest Yoga Class.” Every yoga magazine cover I’ve ever seen has images of supremely limber and fit (read skinny) people. We don’t ALL look like that, so we’re celebrating our shapes and sizes as we are. Every journey begins with a single step, lets take on together.
