Yoga for the non-skinny enhanced
I loved yoga when I was younger. I belonged to an ashram in DC run by Swami Vishnudevananda in Canada. I took class almost every day. I could even stand on my head.
Now, many pounds later, I have looked into yoga glancingly at various places in AZ—they seem to do the kind with the heat on even in the AZ summer.
Also, sitting on the floor—I wonder if I would ever get up again or would crawl around like a wounded roach the rest of my life.
Abby Lentz, Austin TX, has developed a modified version of Kripalu yoga for people of size and those with limited flexibility.
Check out the DVDs on www.heavyweightyoga.com.
She is described as a “plus size dynamo.”
Dynamo, huh. Beats wounded roach.
