I hung out with some bad ass yogis last week! I was invited to be Fat Yoga's photographer for their new website. Which by the way, was really exciting because I have not been officially hired to take photos before. But I dove in and took tons of photos so that there would be plenty to choose from. These are my faves, but I might share some more later on. I was also very excited to shoot fat bodies, other than my own. I felt that I did a good job capturing the movements and shapes of fat bodies as well as show that everybody can do the more difficult poses.
"First and most obvious, Fat Yoga classes are tailored to people who may not be the stereotypical yoga student. While most of us identify as fat, it's certainly not a requirement for participation. You do NOT need to be a specific size to be welcome at Fat Yoga.
Poses are presented and modified to each individual's ability. The size of our thighs, arms, bellies, and butts all change the way we are capable of expressing the traditional asanas (poses). Fat Yoga honors and embraces our differences and strives to create an environment where all bodies can do all poses."
I didn't participate because I was busy taking photos and now I can't wait until my first class with them. They were fun and sassy but also focused and passionate. My previous yoga classes greatly improved my back pain and I look forward to continue practicing.
Oh my goodness, so awesome!
I'm pretty sure Lucas is coming with me to a few. Hello!
Anna teaches the class and you can see her in front of the class in the photo above and doing the balance butterfly pose below. Beautiful!
