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

What Lets Potential Students Know My Classes are Welcoming?

If you’re a yoga teacher, you know that a big part of getting students into your classes is letting people know you’re out there. This involves a variety of factors, but it definitely includes print and online marketing and word of mouth. Word of mouth is the simplest way to share accurately about your classes because your current students are sharing based on their own experience. But when people engage with your print and/or online materials, they don’t have the benefit. So what they see and read matter — both what is seen and unseen, said and unsaid. Representation If you’re wanting to get a diverse group of students into your classes, here are some things to consider: : Class

The Curvy Seven with Judith Curiel

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? Yoga found me when I was in my late forties. I was curious about yoga for a while so I tried a class at my local gym. It was way too challenging but the instructor gave me the names of two local studios to try. She said, “ this is for you…your whole face changes during savasana, don’t stop”. I signed up for an eight week introductory class at one of those studios on Monday evenings. After the second class, I asked the instructor if there were any more similar classes that week. She
