From the Experts

I started the TAKE A DEEP BREATH course, with Meera to increase my oxygen intake. Through the course, I not only increased my oxygen intake, but, ended up learning breathing techniques that help reduce my stress levels immensely. Throughout my day, I play Meera’s, Omniscient Om cd, softly as background music, along with the breathing techniques, I’m finding I feel calmer at the end of the day. Being able to practice these techniques, under any circumstance, in the store, in the car, at work, wherever my daily life takes me, is a huge blessing.


I have enjoyed being in class with Meera over the past 5 years.  She is an informative and thorough instructor.  I have learned a lot. Love the guided relaxation!

TAKE A DEEP BREATH is just what is needed to continue moving forward…”moving” would be the key word here. LOL! Teaching us all how to safely get into each pose is so helpful. I think of your instructions all throughout my day learning to move my body thoughtfully and gently.


Sad to say, I had stopped my daily yoga practice. Then when I tried to “get going again” it was just too much for me. Following your Sun Salutation seated safely on my chair I have once again been able to experience the joy of movement. COVID is a terrible, terrible sickness, but now I will be able to gradually increase my practice and feel good again.

I had never tried yoga before I watched the Big Yoga video the first time. The whole experience was calming and very life and body-affirming. I heartily recommend this video for anyone new to yoga, or who feels uncomfortable in a traditional yoga setting. You’ll really enjoy Big Yoga.

I’m 74 and not very flexible, but Meera has shown me that stretching within my capacity helps reduce pain. Restoration, flexion, relaxation, improved breathing, and spiritual awareness is given in a friendly manner. Very enjoyable!

This course came at a time when I needed help in slowing down, and practicing deep breathing – to get health, be healthy and stay healthy! Thank you Meera!

What makes yoga unique is its ability to change the body’s physiology. Stress hormones contribute to excess weight and its damaging effects. Regular yoga practice, by relieving underlying stress, shifts endorphins, serotonin, melatonin, insulin, dopamine, and right-left brain functions, to assist in healing
With more and more people facing the challenges of being plus-sized, at last here’s a video they can comfortably embrace. Yoga provides unique healing qualities documented to help prevent and reverse high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and other illnesses associated with excess weight. I highly recommend Big Yoga Hatha One.

Meera Kerr’s “Big Yoga” is a harmonious, easy to follow, safe and responsible adaptation of the classic Integral Yoga system of hatha yoga for people who are over weight. As a clinical yoga therapist I highly recommend it.

Big Yoga Students Report…

The stretching and relaxing of yoga significantly reduced the pain of plantar fascitis, even after the first week of class. It feels so good to be able to walk again!

I have been studying Big Yoga for over a year. Meera creates a comfortable, suportive environment in which I can adapt the postures to my own abilities and can succeed at my own pace.

Meera’s Big Yoga classes are the best things I do for myself every week. They restore my body, mind, and spirit. My bone density has improved and I have more fluidity and flexibility in my osteoarthritic joints, as well as new strength in my muscles.

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!


Happy Customer

Meera’s Big Yoga has been transformational for me. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for many years, and I believe yoga has alleviated my pain dramatically.

I wanted to thank you for publishing your book. I had a spinal injury that made me bedridden for 7 months, and the doctors could do nothing for the pain, other than prescribe pain pills. Seeing your book gave me hope because they were gentle poses, and easy to read for beginners. I am happy to say, I am now walking and living a normal life, like a 21 year old should.
