Make peace with your body, discover your strength, and gain confidence.
I’m here to tell you it’s time to stop doing that.
Hi. I’m Amber Karnes.
I’m a yoga teacher, a ruckus maker, and founder of Body Positive Yoga.
My yoga mat is my cease-fire zone where I make peace with my body.
I want to invite you to learn the powerful tools of yoga and mindfulness and join me on the path toward making peace with the body you have today.
As Seen On
Body Positive Yoga is an interactive, monthly subscription to online yoga classes that will teach you how to adapt the practice of yoga to your unique body.
Each month, Body Positive Yoga subscribers get:
Body Positive Yoga is for you. You belong here. Maybe you:
“Thanks to your inspiration, I went to a yoga class yesterday. I was not sure how I might be treated—would I be found lacking, too old, too stiff, too round, too not cool? I went anyway. And the place was warm and accepting of everyone there, of everyone’s body, of any limitations those bodies might have. It felt great. I’m going back this morning.”Laura
RAW BEGINNERS TO YOGA OR FOLKS WHO HAVE HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE AT A YOGA STUDIO
If you’re curious about the practice of yoga but aren’t sure if you have a “yoga body”, are intimidated to step into a yoga studio, or just aren’t sure how to get started, Body Positive Yoga will help you begin the right way. Maybe you’ve even been to a yoga studio and the teacher just ignored you or singled you out.
You won’t encounter that here. With mindful sequences, step-by-step yoga pose breakdowns, and instruction on props, modifications, and adaptations, you’ll learn that your body is exactly right for yoga.
INQUISITIVE HUMANS CRAVING RADICAL SELF-ACCEPTANCE
If you’re not satisfied with the status quo that says you must be thin to be happy, you’re in the right place. If you’ve seen other folks embrace radical self-acceptance and reject stigma and shame, and you’re ready to take steps toward living out loud, you belong here.
Body Positive Yoga is all about taking the tools and techniques that yoga offers and implementing them into your life in a real way that will help you to confidentlyclaim the space you take up in the world.
SOMEONE WHO WANTS A MOVEMENT PRACTICE WITHOUT THE BAGGAGE
If you know that you want a way to move your body that feels good and makes you stronger, but you don’t want the punitive, image-focused environment of some gyms or personal trainers, you belong here. Body Positive Yoga is a movement practice that’s weight-neutral and body agnostic.
We embrace a Health at Every Size® paradigm of wellness, and the focus here is on what our bodies can do and how they feel. You will not find a focus on changing your size, shape, or weight, talk of “burning fat”, or judgment about your fitness level or goals.
“Just did the hour-long practice and feel great! After a session like that, I always feel like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz when he gets all oiled and polished up at the Emerald City…everything’s moving again.”Rebecca

“Body Positive Yoga helped me discover that I was not alone.
Although I practiced yoga over 13 years ago, at that time I was focused on losing weight and many other exterior things… Time and life ceased this practice for a while.
When I landed on my mat again, Body Positive Yoga helped me grow in a supportive way. Although I did feel like the only bigger bodied yoga student in the room at local yoga studios, I can’t believe how much relief and support I felt by discovering Body Positive Yoga’s blog and videos online.
(Amber) not only addressed that sun salutations can be a challenge in a bigger body, (she) gave me some options to access this in my practice. Fast forward a few years, with this small spark, I deepened my practice and continued on my yogic path. I now teach accessible yoga!”Valerie

“Body Positive Yoga is a game-changer. Amber is the teacher I’ve been looking for—inspiring, smart, intuitive, and grounded—and the subscription site provides the structure and inspiration I’ve been needing. The range of yoga practice video times and topics make it easy for me to integrate a yoga practice into my daily life.
By practicing yoga, using mindfulness and self-care, and being supported by a community of others who “get” you, you can learn radical self-acceptance and positively experience your physical body.
Are you ready to take the first step?
Hey, 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—a journey of making peace with my body and helping others do the same.
In my teaching, I emphasize safe alignment and mindful transitions, and help you give yourself permission to honor the body you bring to the mat today. It is my goal to empower you to learn about and embrace your body’s intelligence and power. I infuse my classes with the foundational principles of inclusivity, agency, consent, body positivity, and self-acceptance.
I want to invite you to join me and learn to live life out loud without shame or apology. I want to invite you to learn what it’s like to fully inhabit your body, to accept it and embrace it, to realize that you are already enough—right now.
