We’re one month into 2016 and with many of us dealing with winter weather, you may not feel too inspired to be active.

We don’t know about you but the plus yoga community on Instagram always has us inspired. See for yourself by searching on Instagram for hashtags like #plussizeyoga and #plussizeyogi. These women are proof that yoga is for all bodies and is an inclusive activity. YAY to inclusivity!

You may see these poses and think that it’s impossible. But that’s the beauty of yoga. It’s a versatile activity, where you can make it work for you. Research online via Google and social media to find modifying examples to perform yoga poses in a way that is comfortable for you.

There’s props you can use and great resources online such as the Big Yoga site, run by Meera Patricia Kerr, who teaches classes and also offers books and DVDs to use at home.
