Fat Black Yogini! Fat People Do Yoga

This is my yoga practice. I’m a 45-year-old black woman who has had two children, injuries and self-esteem issues.

My body is strong. My intent is pure and Yoga has changed my life. Not the physical practice of yoga as you see here, but the emotional connection to myself as well as the philosophy of love and inclusion and justice.

This is my yoga practice. Not all fat people are fat in the same way. I can’t do all the poses that younger, longer limbed and differently-abled and fat teachers do. This is my practice of me, for me, about me.
