Scrolling through social media, you could be forgiven for thinking that yoga is the purely the domain of teeny-tiny, thin, flexible girls, clad solely in the latest crop tops and shorts, sipping green juices and watching sunsets everyday. But you don't need to fit this mold to embrace and enjoy yoga. The practice of yoga is over 4,000 years old and can (and should) be enjoyed by people of all sizes. Fat Yoga embraces the "yoga for all" ideology. All bodies, all ages, all abilities.

This book is a step-by-step "how to" guide to yoga with variations to suit the less mobile or flexible. It s also jam-packed with helpful, practical advice, such as how to keep your boobs out of the way during practice. Covering the history and science behind yoga, postures for every situation and gratitude (including self-compassion, body image, to soothe and calm) as well as restorative yoga and chair yoga practice, Fat Yoga the perfect book for yoga enthusiasts of every level and body type. Connect with your body and explore its physicality in a safe way emotionally, physically and spiritually, in the comfort of your own home.

About the Author

Psychotherapist, yoga teacher, researcher and university lecturer, Sarah Harry is considered an expert in body image. She is regularly in the news on TV and in print as both an expert and a fat yogi! Sarah was one of the first western yogis to offer yoga exclusively for bigger bodies. She has practised yoga for more than 20 years and has been running specialist classes and retreats for the last few years. "We don't believe in kale (unless it's in a burger) and we loathe juice fasts (what are your kidneys for people?) and we love to bring complex topics like neuroscience to recovery and make them accessible," says Sarah.

    • Reference

    This book is great for those who would like to try yoga but are intimidated by the usual instructionals done by thin instructors. The adaptions to the yoga poses allows the user to slowly improve as they become more limber. The only criticism is the "putting it all together" section is right at the back. Perhaps in the 2nd edition this should be put at the front.
