What they're saying

I feel really strong afterwards.

"Just wanted to let you know that I think that the site is brilliant! I never thought I could do yoga in a bigger body and then I stumbled (accidentally!) onto Body Positive Yoga. I really like the way you demystify poses like downward facing dog. I feel really strong afterwards." 

-Lee

Gained confidence

"Amber, this was amazing and so informative! I learned new tricks for my body, and gained confidence in some modifications I already knew."

-Megan

Maybe you find yourself asking...

  • Why don’t my hands touch the floor in a forward fold? 
  • Why can’t I step my foot forward from downward-facing dog into a lunge? 
  • Why do my wrists hurt in downward-facing dog?
  • How do I keep my chest out of my face in down dog?
  • Why can’t I get the hang of plank or chaturanga?
  • Why can’t I walk/hop/step my feet up between my hands?
  • If I can’t be on hands and knees, how am I ever going to do this?
  • Is my body just [too big, too old, too stiff, too weak] to do sun salutations?

Your body is not the problem!

Sun Salutations are the foundation of many yoga classes, and a classic example of synchronizing breath with movement. But depending on your body type, level of strength, and range of motion, some parts of the sun salutation series may be “sticky spots” for you. 

Back in the day, yoga asana practices were designed for skinny teenage Indian boys. You are not a skinny teenage Indian boy! Neither am I! You just need the tools and knowledge to adapt these yoga sequences to your unique body.

I’m Amber Karnes, creator of Body Positive Yoga.

Yoga has been an integral part of my decade-long journey toward self-acceptance and body positivity – making peace with my body and helping others to do the same. I believe that through joyful movement and self-care, we can learn radical self-acceptance and positively experience our bodies, no matter our shape, size, age, or ability.

In my yoga teaching, I emphasize safe alignment and mindful transitions, and help you give yourself permission to honor the body you bring to the mat today, while also being empowered to learn about the body’s intelligence and power. I infuse my classes, workshops, and retreats with the foundational principles of inclusivity, agency, consent, body positivity, and self-acceptance.
