We’ve all seen them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and more: images of predominately white, young, thin women practicing yoga. Is yoga really for everyone? The answer is yes!
It’s important to find a studio that makes you feel comfortable in your skin. Yoga incorporates the entire spectrum of diversity: bigger women, older women, people of color, and even men, all practice yoga.
Yoga is not about how you look on the outside — it’s a space to feel confident and comfortable and a way to connect with yourself and others. Body positivity through yoga builds confidence, especially as you become aware of your progression in flexibility and mindfulness.
At The Floating Lotus the teachers and students represent a variety of shapes, sizes, ages, genders and ethnicities. Anyone can practice yoga and we make sure everyone who comes into the studio feel invited and welcomed.
We offer classes and workshops including curvy yoga and yin yoga, which can be a good way to ease into a new practice. Our yoga classes are often include positive body affirmations. Loving yourself and others, and being comfortable in your own skin, is a part of the practice.
No matter how big or small, we all practice and grow together.
