Print Ad excitment  
Okay I'm excited. Three weeks ago my yoga teacher said I had what it took to become a yoga teacher myself. Squeee! So happy! And she said it in front of my mother at the first yoga class my mom ever took and did so well (especially with pranayama!)

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.

Love ya'll!

Is this the one?

It's pretty great. We definitely don't get to see many images that challenge the pervasive untruth that fatness = poor health and ability.

Yes! I saw that photo last week when I was dreaming of a much-needed vacation. . . I especially appreciate the fact that it's not presented as "Look! Fat people can do yoga too!" It's just a picture of a woman in a beautiful pose.

And I wouldn't even call her "fat" (in my terms), but as far as yoga imagery goes, I suppose she is.

I think it ROCKS! Yoga is not about being a skinny bitch who never goes to the kitch (okay, that was funnier in my head). Yoga is not about weight loss/management/exercise/whatever.

I'm somewhere in the middle size range of bodies, and I LOVE it when I see larger bodies kicking my yoga butt (metaphorically). It makes me appreciate that yoga is for everyone, and that strength and size are not related, and size and grace are not related.

If you want to be a yoga teacher, or take teacher training (and not everyone does, and not everyone should!), I say go for it. (If you don't, there's nothing wrong with that--"go for it" in your yoga studies.)

It's great. I love yoga and so my wife that's why I think it rocks on.

Life coaching for women
The ultimate goal of the yogis was “self realization” or “enlightenment”, a concept, which perhaps is quite esoteric to you and me.
