Often people who don’t fit into the “yoga body” stereotype feel as if yoga just isn’t for them. Yoga has so many benefits for it’s practitioners regardless of size, age, ethnicity, gender etc. Sound Method is so proud to offer Intro to Curvy Yoga and Curvy Yoga Level II taught by the region’s only Curvy Certified Yoga Instructor, Jen Weaver. Curvy Yoga is yoga for rounder bodies. It’s for those who are in good health and ready to add yoga to their lives, but who may have felt insecure in the past walking into a yoga studio. Curvy Yoga is not about weight loss; it’s about acceptance. It’s about adaptability; not rigidity. Jen’s light-hearted, adaptive style will help you fall in love with yoga, and she’ll teach you how to craft a yoga practice that is intelligent, meaningful and unique to you and your own needs. Something non-traditional students can’t always get in a regular yoga class.
