95% of Life is Learning to Withstand Feeling

The night before Curve Camp started, I didn’t feel right. My heart was racing a bit, and I kept feeling a familiar feeling — a rush of heat and energy from my low belly to the top of my head. As I laid in bed, I sent out a request to the universe: “Please let me stop feeling this right now.” Oh, and “If I could never feel this ever again, that would be really great.” kthxbye What Stress? I never used to think I got nervous. But I would did get sick a lot, somehow always right before I had something big, new or (worse!) big and new to do. It took me longer than I’d like to admit

The Curvy Seven with Kate Connell

Happy to introduce this month’s yogi in our Curvy Seven feature! To see everyone who has been interviewed, please click here. 1. What’s your yoga origin story? In high school I had a girl crush on a fellow swimmer. She surfed and explored the world and had just come back from a 200 hour yoga teacher training (she was 17!) and I wanted to be just like her – confident, care-free, and seriously in love with life. After the inspiration, I headed to a group-led yoga class in a poorly lit small town gym. For the first time in my life, I felt physically good at something… physical. After years of being sick on the days we ran the mile at

Some Days You’ll Remember

Some days you’ll remember why you started this body acceptance journey in the first place. Some days you’ll remember where you used to be — and how far you’ve come. Some days you’ll remember what keeps you here. Some days you’ll remember you do still have your own back after all. Some days you’ll remember why you don’t give up. Some days you’ll remember how good it feels to say to yourself — Hello, Sweetheart. Some days you won’t remember. But on the days you do, you’ll remember how beautifully you can support and care for yourself. And some days, that will be exactly what you need. Share the blog!

The Yoga and Body Image Book is Here!

Have you ever had a phone call with someone you admired, and you were just pumped to talk to them, no matter what you talked about? That’s how I felt the first time I talked with Melanie Klein. Melanie and I have similar backgrounds, and we were both writing about yoga and body image several years ago, when the conversation was much more nascent. Our first call was so fun — lots of “Me, toos” and “Amens.” And by the end of it, to my delight, we decided we had to do something together around yoga and body image. It just didn’t make sense to us that yoga classes were often talking about how to move the body and feel
