Body Positivity Yoga is an approach to Yoga that was developed by founder and owner, Lisa Papez - aka The Fat Yogini
after more than a decade of modifying classical poses to make them more accessible for first her own and then her student's bodies.
Starting with the idea that Yoga should be accessible to every body, Body Positivity Yoga is designed to meet the needs of the non-stereotypical Yoga practitioner. Embracing the ideals of self-acceptance, body-acceptance, and self-care, each class is designed to meet you where you are - regardless of your shape, size, age, gender, or level of ability
The point is, that you CAN do Yoga. Let us show you!
