Making Yoga Accessible to the “Volumptuous, Obese, Elderly and Disabled.”
Review via T. McKinsey Morgan, from the Holiday 08 issue.
The title reminds me of prizefighters, Jumbo the Elephant or Hefty bags. Still, the prevailing image of yogis is slim, trim and without breasts—so I applaud Abby Lentz for creating a DVD for full-sized people. I especially liked her encouragement to “start with the body you have today.” Don’t have time to do the whole practice? The DVD is divided into sessions. The “Unable to Come to the Floor” session and “bed bound” tips are helpful for those unable to do conventional yoga. I enjoyed the soothing rhythm, and the savasana cool down exercises. Abby has a sincere and calming manner that will inspire full-sized (not heavyweight!) people to try a little yoga.
