Here, now, yoga.
“Atha yoga anushasanam.” It means come as you are. Wherever you are, however you are, this is where your practice begins. Westernized yoga would have you believe that having a yoga practice takes preparation of Academy Awards proportions: get thin, get flexible, look sexy, and above all else … get a great outfit, all before you even step on the mat! It shouldn’t be like that. It doesn’t have to be like that. You’re practice is waiting for you NOW. Just as you are, a beautiful willing mess. Bring it all – your bumps, your curves, your anxiety, your back pain, your drama. Gather all your excuses and come to your mat.
Every body can practice yoga. Don’t believe me? Reach out. Come to class.
Westside Curvy Yoga has a new home!
Find us at the new Santosha Yoga in bethany village
The class that was started by 3 amazing women who were adamantly opposed to setting foot in a studio. That was 5 years ago, and we’re still going strong! When we outgrew our original space, Dina Lang stepped up to offer us use of her private sanctuary in Cedar Hills, where we have been meeting since January. And now that her new studio has officially opened, we are joining her there! Santosha Yoga’s mission is to offer real, accessible, yoga that is truly for EVERY body, and we are so excited to now be on the regular schedule there. We meet Wednesday evenings from 8:00pm – 9:00pm.

This space used to hold a very formal bio … but it wasn’t my jam, so here’s what I want you to know about me: I love yoga. I love making it real and accessible
for everybody, and try to do so in my most authentic voice. Which means an occasional f-bomb, mixing up my right and left feet, some questionable playlist choices, and some shared tears when I’m feeling most vulnerable. I am a fierce advocate for body image positivity, health at every size, and I love nurturing my students with a down-to-earth class: exploring breath, awareness, movement and self-compassion. I love the smell of lavender, and if you come to class, I might offer you a drop for a blissed-out sivasana. I like working with students from all walks of life, especially those who otherwise have felt unsure, unseen or shut out in previous yoga and movement experiences, because I was that yogi! I am also very passionate about working with yoga teachers on how to make classes accessible, and through my teacher training offerings, I encourage the teaching community to truly consider what it means to offer “yoga for EVERY body.”
