I want to echo other women with larger bodies in thanking you for seeing and teaching us. I felt rough today; aching joints, tiredness, but I felt better after this practice. Please keep doing what you're doing.

Thank you so much for sharing this video! I've been working from home for a week and decided to take up yoga again. I was so thrilled to see the plus size yoga (being plus sized myself) and I feel like I'm getting the stretch and relaxation I need!

Ahh! I've been a fan of this site for a long time but have been away for a while. When I (a plus size woman) came back and saw there's now a plus size yoga section (with a plus size teacher!!) I was thrilled. This practice was a wonderful way to start my day. Thank you Helen for making me feel seen.

helen, thank you for your videos. Both my husband and I have many years of doing some yoga. We now have a special needs child (11 y. o.) and we've gotten her started on her practice. Your practices are some of the few on the website that are beginner, short enough (15-20 mins), and incorporating some relaxation and breath, so that she gets benefit. You are greatly appreciated!
