Your Flex-Ability DVD has renewed my hope and eased my physical pain. So much so that I am looking forward to doing it again tomorrow and releasing more of the stress and strain of excess from my body. Most importantly, for me you made the mind, body, AND spirit connection that has been missing in every other exercise I've done up until this point. This is what I have been searching for!

With a sense of humor, she illustrates through photo essays of asanas that it is possible for the larger student to become an accomplished yoga practitioner.

Live Once Juicy: Big Yoga Book Review

Review from: Live Once, Juicy

I’m very, very new to yoga. I also live in a remote, rural area with exactly zero available yoga classes or teachers.

As a result, I’ve had to find some resources that I could use to learn on my own. It’s made me so happy to find that there are several good ones that are designed especially for larger people. I haven’t felt like I’m not quite included or like I’ve had to push and shove to make room for myself in the yoga space. And I really appreciate that.
