    Reading about the ‪#‎sizedoesntmatter‬ challenge that encourages plus size people to try yoga, and I’m feeling inspired. I’ve long held the belief that yoga can be done by anyone and like to think I’m living proof (I try to practice at least 5 times a week). When I first started yoga as a bigger person, I admit it was super scary and tough. I often felt incredibly self conscious and fearful that I wouldn’t be able to do what others could. My goal was always, “Do what you can and don’t beat yourself up. Just try.” It comforts me knowing that there are more and more body positive people out there who are paving the way for others. No one should feel afraid to try something because of their size especially when it’s as healthy and beneficial as yoga.

    Yoga on a dock is surprisingly difficult (and fun!). I didn’t plan for waves, but it was fun to try to maintain balance while rocking.

    I love affirming all the beautiful things my body can do.
