Hi, I'm Dianne Bondy.
I've made it my life mission to bring yoga to people who feel like they don't belong.
Yoga can teach you the life-changing lesson of radical self-love, if you can find an accepting community to support you along the way. What if you:
Wherever you are on your yoga journey, you deserve a yoga community:
But is there a yoga community for the rest of us? If finding a yoga community that supports and accepts you as you are seems like nothing more than a distant dream, I totally understand.
You've probably tried out classes in local studios or signed up for one of the "big box" online yoga subscription services, hoping to find a supportive place where you can practice. But it's not that easy, is it?
And like so many yoga students I've met, you're probably convinced that if you want to practice yoga, you'll just have to settle for always feeling a little like an outsider.
I started practicing yoga with my mom when I was still a toddler. For years, I practiced yoga at home, growing in my practice. Eventually, I decided to try a class at a local studio because it seemed like the thing to do.
When I got there, the person at the front desk looked at me and questioned whether I could keep up with the class I wanted to attend. Later, when I became a teacher, I decided to make my studio a space where anyone who wished to practice yoga could do so in an inclusive yoga space.
I ran that successful yoga studio for more than a decade. And now I teach yoga teachers how to make their classes inclusive for all people. But unfortunately, not every town has a body-positive yoga studio.
People are still being excluded from traditional yoga spaces. And I decided to do something about it.
Created for people who might not feel comfortable in mainstream yoga classes, Yoga For All Students includes 250+ on-demand videos taught by me, Dianne Bondy. I’m an E-RYT 500 teacher with more than 1000 hours of training and I’m the leader of the Yoga For All movement.
I created Yoga For All Students because I believe that everyone deserves a yoga practice if they want one, regardless of their shape, size, ethnicity, or ability. As a life-long yoga practitioner and teacher, I understand the nuances of yoga postures and can help you break them down into easy to understand movements that will work in your body.

"I've tried a lot of online yoga classes and so many simply aren't accessible if you're in a larger body or have sensitive joints. Yoga for All Students offers me lots of classes to choose from, in a variety of styles, and Dianne always offers ways to adapt the poses in every class. I can always find a class that works with my schedule...and my body."
"Wonderful class! I am a big fan of yoga because it gives me the relaxation I need in order to make it through my day. This routine did exactly as it promised, prepared me for my day! I love what you are doing here, your an inspiration and I see myself sticking with yogasteya for years to come."
"I was beyond excited when you announced that you would be launching an online studio. I started back up at school, and between school, homework, my son and general life, it doesn’t leave me much time to get to the studio, so I am absolutely ecstatic that I now can have your classes online in my living room!!!"
100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Starting a new practice can be exciting...and a little it scary. If you want to try yoga, but are a little unsure, that's okay. Do any of these sound familiar?
Yoga can be expensive if you add it all up, but it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. A membership to Yoga For All Students gets you unlimited access to 250+ on-demand yoga classes for a month for less than the cost of one drop-in class at a traditional studio. That's as little as $0.40 per day.
Practice anytime, anywhere. No hefty monthly fees, no time spent in traffic, no need to leave the house. Compare the cost a Yoga for All Students membership with a membership at a studio.
Most online fitness classes are hyper-focused on having or achieving a very particular body type, so I understand if you're worried that this will just be more of the same. Yoga for All Students is different. We recognize that every body is unique and celebrate those differences. Each of our yoga classes offers adaptations to ensure that the practice works for your body rather than the other way around.
There's no diet talk or body shame at Yoga for All Students. I promise. I'm a Health at Every size advocate and I'm in recovery for an eating disorder. Yoga for All Students classes are all about moving joyfully and celebrating what it can do.
I think you’ll love Yoga For All Students so much that you want to invite your friends to join you. But if you ever decide that Yoga For All Students isn’t for you, it’s easy to cancel.

Yes! Yoga For All Students is perfect for beginner and advanced beginner students. Each video uses the “bus stop” method to ensure that the sequence is truly accessible to yogis of all experience levels. You get to choose the variation of each pose that feels right to you each day.
Yes! I love teaching the fundamentals of a pose and then adding more variations and options to make each pose more challenging! And with the “bus stop” method, you can choose how challenging you want each practice to be.
Yes! Yoga For All Students is perfect for yogis with abundant legs, arms, middles or backsides and I will show you how to adapt each pose to work for your body. Additionally, Yoga For All Students follows Health at Every Size (HAES) principles and understands that body size is not indicative of health or ability.
I sure hope so! Yoga For All Students was created to be inclusive, accepting, and non-competitive. All bodies are different and there’s no one right way to do a pose. Instead, I hope to help you discover the best way to do each pose in your body. You don’t have to look a certain way or be anything other than who you are to belong in the Yoga For All Students Community.
Nope! Choose a pair of stretchy pants or shorts and a shirt and you’re set!
I love props and I show you how to use them in the videos, but that doesn’t mean you have to rush out and buy all of them right away. You’ll want a yoga mat to keep you from slipping during standing poses, but that’s all you really need to get started. If you’d like to invest in a few essential props, I recommend two yoga blocks, a strap and a bolster. A sturdy folding chair will be invaluable and you might want to have a firm blanket or thick beach towel handy too. Many yoga props can be purchased at your local discount store, online or can be swapped out for common household items. Be creative!
Yoga For All Students offers vinyasa flow, Hatha, restorative and strength-building classes. Pranayama and meditation classes are included too, so there’s a class to match your every mood.
Like with anything else, the more time you dedicate to your yoga practice, the more you will get out of it. However, consistency matters more than the amount of time spent practicing in one session. It’s better to practice a little each day than to wait to carve out an hour and a half for a marathon practice. The benefits of yoga are cumulative, so a little each day can add up to big benefits over time.
No problem. Yoga For All Students is risk-free. If you decide that Yoga For All Students isn’t right for you, simply cancel your membership from your account page.
P.S. Give yourself the gift of yoga!
A regular yoga practice offers many benefits including reduced stress; improved self-image; increased confidence; better sleep; reduced blood pressure; increased range of motion, strength, and balance; improved mood and sense of calm, and more!
