You rarely see overweight (obese) people in a yoga class due to the high chance they will be judged and frowned upon. This problem has created a new trend called, Fat Yoga.
Most people think yoga is for those with a slim body. For those that are overweight, just the thought of being the fattest one in the yoga class is enough to not bother going.
The truth is, yoga is for any body shape or size!
Fat yoga classes are popping up online and in many towns and countries. At these classes there is no need to feel low, or bad about your size.
These yoga classes are non-judgmental and most cater for all fitness levels. So if you are a larger sized person, you no longer need to postpone doing yoga.
Here are some online Fat yoga video channels, and some classes in various towns and countries that I have found.
