Also excited because a few pages into the magazine Yoga+ there's an ad for Kirapalu with a fat woman doing a full pigeon pose. I think I'm going to tear it out and hang it up for inspiration!
If you've seen the ad, please comment with your impressions of it.
I just recently tried Megan Garcia's Just My Size Yoga. I admit I wasn't really a fan. I didn't feel like she explained how to do the positions very well. Though I did find three I could do, most of them were too difficult for me. I can't support myself on my hands/wrists (I think that was called Cats & Dogs? Or Downward facing Dog? Or something like that. Forgive me, I'm brand spanking new and haven't learned everything yet.), I think that is the biggest problem. I was able to do Mountain and Warrior I and II, which seem like excellent things to begin with. However, I worry I'm going to do it wrong and hurt myself. Does anyone have any advice?
Also, I found Megan's voice to be kind of irritating, and she moves entirely too quick for me to feel relaxed. I don't know, I just feel rather disappointed all together. It seems like that's the only DVD for fat girls like me to try yoga too.
Since that seems to be the case, does anyone have any suggestions on other poses I could try? I'm 375lbs, and I don't have a lot of flexibility or strength yet. So I'm looking for things that will help me build that. I'm also in the Portland, OR area (Downtown), so if anyone knows of a great Yoga class that works for someone my size I would really love to hear about it. I'm looking more for personality recommendations of places people either go, or have gone, instead of "You might want to try and see if they have" type things.
Thanks to everyone!
I've been teaching yoga consistently for the past eight years and last Tuesday was my final class. There have been varied changes in the management of the facility where I had been teaching and in the change all my students have moved on. In preparation of this shift and my need to increase my personal practice I have been taking two additional classes each week. And so, this is the journey...
As the instructor, I am in control of the style, pattern, and flow of the class. I have learned to breathe and speak, to relax and hold as I cue, or to watch my class and support them. On my mat at home, the same applies. Generally I write my flows or practice in preparation for class. Sometimes I just work in specific asanas.
Since I have joined class as participant, the first lesson I had to learn was to turn off the teacher inside and being my focus to my mat. From the back of the class this was a constant redirection; from the front , I had ego chatter. Thankfully, I had my commitment to breathe and mindfulness. Eventually, I learned to relax into being - being on the mat, being present, being student. One would imagine this comes with ease, especially after all these years, but the biggest bit I had to release was the need to be in control.
So, I have shifted again. I joined a new club and now have three new teacher. They have very different styles and poses I have never seen before. At times I am distracted by the music - Sam Cook, Mary J Blige, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Goo-Goo Dolls. There were times I missed the cues. On the other hand, I once received feedback about playing music with words. I now understand.
I am preparing for the next great thing. In my world that will be Hot Yoga. The new studio hasn't yet opened, but we are planning for a fall appearance. Hot Yoga will be offered three days a week. As much as I know anyone can begin at anytime, I would rather have a bit more stamina when I walk in. What I have learned about being the student is that being in control; even as I upped the ante for my class was still within my comfort zone.
In every practice we reach for ease and effort. It is amazing when we allow another to extend our length and breathe, when we give in and give up, recreating the divine dance within ourselves. Namaste
