How do I modify or make [insert yoga pose here] work in my body?

Check out my blog where you can find dozens of tutorial videos that teach you how to work with popular yoga poses in the body you have today.

I don’t have a “yoga body.” How can I find a teacher that can accommodate my needs or an accessible yoga class near me?

There are a few online directories I recommend! Accessible Yoga, Yoga For All, Curvy Yoga, and Setu all list inclusive or adaptive yoga teachers around the world. You can also ask this question in the Accessible Yoga Community on Facebook!

Where do you teach? Can I come to your classes?

Right now I mainly work with yoga teachers or people training to become teachers. Unfortunately, my schedule doesn’t permit me to teach weekly group classes or private lessons at this time, but I often travel and teach online!

I also teach online at Yoga International, where you can find classes, articles, and a course on self-care. Get a 2-week free trial here.
