Yoga is one of the best ways to spread body positive messages to the world. It is an activity that is for all bodies and when you start doing yoga, you feel better about yourself… mind, body and spirit.
The yoga community has grown leaps and bounds online, now including plus size women. For so long, we have been stereotyped as lazy, sloppy and unable to do many things. The new plus size yogis on the scene continue to prove those stereotypes wrong with every pose, every story and every quote.
The yoga community is so welcoming and spreads the message that yoga is for every body. There is no judgment, just support. Need inspiration? Follow some of these women on Instagram to see their daily poses. They engage in monthly challenges, support each other and encourage other women to join in. It’s simply amazing.
We have seen so many yoga poses on Instagram that just inspire us to want to try it ourselves. You feel empowered when you can do things with your body that you have been told for years that you couldn’t. So we wanted to share 10 yoga poses we saw on Instagram that have us getting our yoga mats ready. We hope they will inspire you just the same.
