From the Publisher
Yoga for everyone
Author Anna Guest-Jelley understands what it’s like trying to force yourself into poses that won’t take and feeling short of breath. That's why she created Curvy Yoga -- to embrace all shapes and sizes. She rolls out a welcoming introduction to the practice, along with personal stories of growth, classes gone awry, clueless gurus, and the fat-shaming that pervades the yoga scene.
Learn how to make Yoga work for your body
With an appendix full of pose variants for all sizes and skill levels, you'll never have to give up on that hard-to-reach pose again.
—Jennifer Louden, author of The Woman’s Comfort Book and The Life Organizer
“Finally. A book that puts our culture’s destructive body-shaming to rest and gives women the tools they need to forge a new, more loving relationship with their bodies. In Curvy Yoga, Anna shares her own journey from shame and self-loathing to compassionate curiosity and self-love with gentle humor and great insight. In doing so, she shows every woman who has ever struggled with body acceptance how to ‘love herself to inner freedom.’ The practices she offers and the wisdom she dispenses encourage us to be kind and take time to get to know our bodies not as adversaries, but as friends and allies; to soften the way we treat and speak about them; and to embrace what we need to feel joyful and whole.”
—Linda Sparrowe, former editor-in-chief of Yoga International, and author of Yoga At Home: Inspiration for Creating Your Home Practice

I did not get compensated for my review in any way ...I appreciate HONEST reviews and hope you do as well.
I didn't even bother to read the description, but I assumed it was about Curvy Yoga and doing poses. And it is, but it's so much more. It's about self-understanding, self-love, health even if it doesn't match what's culturally acceptable, and how yoga is a route to all of those. It feels like grace. What a wonderful treat to find that I'm getting so much more than I expected and to find that it's exactly what I need.
