Fat Yoga: Yoga for Plus-Size


at Williston Studio (373 Blair Park Road
Suite 205 Williston, VT 05495)

Fat Yoga: Yoga for Plus-Size is an affinity space for anyone who identifies as fat or plus-sized. 

In this slow flow-style class, you will find accessible cues, transition variations, and the use of props such as blocks, bolsters, straps, chairs, and the wall to support your practice. We strive to empower students to become more confident using props, choosing pose variations, taking up space, and adapting the practice to their bodies, not the other way around. The philosophy and culture of this class is steeped in the principles of fat liberation: allowing yourself to be comfortable in your body without any body shaming, body checking, or diet talk. There are opportunities to connect with other students before and after class. No matter if you join in person or online, participants are encouraged to ask questions, do their own thing, and generally feel at home in their bodies.

This is an affinity space for folks in big bodies.
