As a ‘curvy’ woman, it’s really hard for me to get up the gumption to go to the gym and try to work out in front of all those fit women. I’ve tried before, but usually I end up so self conscious that I give up early, come home, and make dinner for my family instead. And that’s the thing…there’s always a reason why not to go. I’ve got a family to take care of. Or I feel like people are staring at me. Or things are just too complicated. Well, in Mumbai there is a yogi who is taking all that and shoving it right out the window. In an effort to promote body positivity in her part of India, this yogi takes her curvy self to the streets and practices her poses for all to see. Take a look!
I want to be this woman when I grow up. I hope someday I’m able to get past all my excuses and find my way into the gym, but until then, maybe I’ll see what I can about trying yoga at home. I don’t know how she’s affected the people of Mumbai, but she’s definitely affected me.
