Looking for an acclaimed expert on body acceptance, bold life transitions — and bringing YOGA to a (bigger) audience?


Well, Hello. Nice to Meet You, Too.


As the creator of Curvy Yoga — and a lifelong advocate for women’s health, happiness & confidence —  I’m living proof that when you grab life by the curves, life loves you back.

Ask me about…

  • Inspiring yoga pose modifications for bigger-bodied people. With 15 years of practice & over 5 years of teaching, I’ve got the anatomy and instruction down pat. Want images or video of curvy modifications in action? Email me.
  • Creating welcoming, accessible, inclusive studio environments for yogis of every size, age & ability. (It’s not rocket science. But it does take some attunement.)
  • My personal Yoga adventure from self-loathing to sheer celebration — 65 diets, 15 years of misinformation, and the mind-body breakthrough that changed everything.

Don’t be shocked if I . . .

  • Bring a light-hearted, spirited approach to serious topics. (It’s just what I do.)
  • Use deeply personal stories to frame universal lessons. Stories move us in ways that stacks of data simply . . . don’t.
  • Challenge your readers, listeners & viewers to bring their yoga practice off the mat, and into the world — where the real work begins.

Pop a question. Grab a soundbite. Curvy Yoga is my life’s work. If you want to shine a spotlight on the movement, I’m all ears. Get in touch or email me at anna@curvyyoga.com.
