Thank you so much for creating space for bigger bodies in yoga. I've avoided it for years because it hurts my wrists and I feel like I can't breathe but your entire beginner series provided so many options and invited me to allow myself to take the space my body needs. Thank you!!!

What a wonderful way to return to myself at the end of a very busy and intense work/parenting day! Thanks so much for an excellent practice. Looking forward to your other classes!

My pleasure! Good for you for taking some time to yourself in what sounds like a very busy schedule. Sometimes just getting to the mat is the biggest challenge of all. So glad the practice worked for you, and thank you so much for taking the time to comment! :)

OMGosh Goodness, I have been waiting for you almost 5 years now. It's been a journey to work my body through yoga and you have given me yoga wings. This is not my first attempt at Yoga but this is definitely the most comfortable I have felt doing yoga. Thank you @doyogawithme It was time to have added a plus size version of yoga. Can I just say you have inspired me and now look forward to calling you my lunch break at work. :) Thank you for what you do.

No one has ever told me I have given them yoga wings before and this has put a huge smile on my face!! I'm so happy that this practice feels comfortable in your body and remember you can color outside the lines and continue to modify in any way that you need to. Once we get on board with the idea that our practice is there to meet us instead of us trying to shove our way in to it, the doors blow open and it's a whole new experience. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, and I'll see you at lunch! ;)

Thank you!! This was the perfect practice for me today! Why did I never think of lifting my belly before?! Thank you!

Right?! The first time I started shifting my belly, it did so much for my practice and my ability to make space for myself. I'm so glad it felt good and that you enjoyed the practice. Thank you for taking the time to comment! :)
