Join Amber Karnes of Body Positive Yoga and Anna Chapman of Body Love Yoga, for a night about radical self-acceptance and body peace. We’ll start with a meet & greet followed by a discussion about making peace with our bodies with plenty of time for Q&A. We’ll close things out with a body positive yoga class followed by a guided meditation.

Come as you are and honor the body you bring to the mat today. Big bodies, creaky joints, non-yogis, and beginners welcome. This is low-pressure, judgment-free yoga taught by a big yogi with a big heart. Space is limited.

A limited number of full scholarships are available to community members facing financial limitations. Folks with marginalized identities (BIPOC, LGBTQ+, folks with disabilities, etc.) will be given priority consideration. To apply for a scholarship, email

Hosted by Anna Chapman of Body Love Yoga

Anna’s mission in life is to create a safe space for people to connect and land in their bodies. Having started yoga feeling like she and her body didn’t fit in, she has since came to the conclusion that the most empowering act of self-care is to take as much unapologetic space as is needed both on the mat and in life. She is passionate in her pursuits to make yoga accessible for all bodies. She loves weaving meditation and mindfulness into class, reminding students of their inherent worthiness and support by simply being in bodies on this earth.
