Cuando oímos hablar acerca del yoga viene a nuestra mente la imagen de una persona con un cuerpo sano y estético, sin embargo, en Estados Unidos existe una mujer que rompió dichos estereotipos y se ha vuelto una fuente de inspiración en Instagram.
You all are used to seeing me practice yoga in my Instagram box here, but I would love to see how you practice and move! Show yourself and tag #fittothrive so I can see all your beautiful strong big bodies doing your thing! Representation of our bodies matter. Push the boundaries of negative stereotypes and show how much we can really do. @diaandco #ad #sponsored #DiaandCopartner

Day 18 of the #Selflovingyogis July challenge ❣Boat Pose . Sit on the floor with the legs out in front of you. You will balancing on your sit bones which could possibly hurt if you are not used to it, so you can place a folded blanket underneath to give you a bit of cushion. Find a nice upright seat as you lengthen the spine, bend the knees with the feet flat on the floor, and bring the arms out in front hovering by the sides of the knees. Still keeping the spine lengthened lean back rocking onto that sweet spot of the sit bones, and lifting the feet up off to the floor, and shins parallel to the floor as you balance on the sit bones. If it's hard to find that balance just yet with both feet off the floor, lift one foot at a time off the ground, finding balance on each side till you can balance with both off the floor, or you can use props to prop up your feet a bit higher up. . How to join in: - Post a photo (s) or video of what you feel like for the self care activities, and of yourself in the daily yoga pose. - Tag myself @biggalyoga and sponsors @bombsheller @luminanceskincare @stardancerdesigns with #selflovingyogis so I can follow you along on your journey. - Share the flyer and tag a friend to spread the word and join in anytime! . . . #yoga #selfcare #selflove #yogalove #yogatherapy #yogachallenge #summerofselfcare #biggalyoga

Day 24 of the #SelfLovingYogis yoga challenge Forearm Wheel Added in all the variations of Chakrasana we did. The only way I first learned to really get into wheel was this way. Take your time and don't rush. Start off on the back with the hands above your shoulders, fingers pointing to shoulders and palms down. Roll up on the crown of the head from the base, lifting up with the core of the body so you are balancing on 5 points: the head, hands, and feet. Drop one forearm down to the floor, and then the other so the hands are clasped together behind head. Walk the feet back a little closer, as you lift up with core lengthening the spine. After all these Wheel poses, it's great to take some counter poses to balance out the body. I like to do knees to chest and child's pose. @round_the_way_gal also has a counter pose as well, and @curvygirlmeetsyoga has some other forearm practicing tips. How to join the challenge: - Repost the challenge flyer. - Post a photo or video of yourself in the daily pose of the day. - Tag hosts @BigGalYoga @round_the_way_gal and @curvygirlmeetsyoga as well as the sponsors @stardancerdesigns @lovedarianjane @rainbeaucurves @bombsheller @justcurvesactive and @inked_yogi1974_ everyday in your daily post.

I've been enjoying my pieces from the @JCPenney Boutique. As you guys can tell I practically live in my leggings and have worn these on and off my mat. As well as enjoying the bright colors! No matter how hard I try to pick more neutral colors, I can't help but have to wear as bright as I can clothes. They are my jam!

“Quiero ser capaz de inspirar a otros como instructora, para ayudar a las personas que piensan que no pueden practicar yoga, porque según la opinión de la sociedad hay que lucir de cierta manera”, es una de las frases que señala Valerie Sagun en su página GoFundMe.
Been traveling and hanging out with my art buddies over the weekend. Though, nothing like making you feel old like your sciatic nerve flaring up after you were dancing ????. Trying some physical yoga therapy and resting. This pain sucks, especially the nerve in my butt ????. Need that self care for the upcoming month. #yogatherapy #selfcare #fuckbackpain #restorativeyoga #biggalyoga
