When I first met my client Dana, she was in the middle of shooting photos for her first book. She has worked tirelessly for the past year to put together YES, Yoga Has Curves, a book that captures the true essence of yoga with women in many shapes and sizes.
“In popular media only one type of yoga body is highlighted and there is little representation for fuller bodied women. Because of this, many women don’t think they have the “yoga body” and hesitate exploring yoga, even though it has countless benefits.
The book serves as a testament that yoga is for EVERYbody and that no physical size is better suited for practice. It celebrates beautiful goddesses of all curvy shapes and sizes and finally allows the beauty of our curves to be recognized in this blessed art called yoga.”
Although she is in the final stages, Dana needs the assistance of the community to get the book completed and distributed to the masses (final layout, final editing, marketing and printing). She has started a campaign asking for donations to help bring this book to life.
Now you all should already know that I don’t blog about things I don’t like or don’t support. Although Dana is my client, she’s also a great woman and a great yoga instructor. She has also worked extremely hard on this passion project and I want to do what I can to help. I made a donation last night and I’m using my blog as a platform to spread the word! It is important to support those around me who are hustling, like I am, to make their dreams a reality! We can achieve so much more when we come together and help one another.
If you love yoga or feel inspired to do a good deed today, please check out Dana’s campaign page HERE and consider making a donation to help her bring YES Yoga Has Curves to fruition. No donation amount is too small!
