Often asked question: Why Rubenesque Yoga?
"Students often ask why I picked the name "Rubenesque Yoga™" for my yoga classes. First, I was determined to teach plus size yoga classes since I myself am a plus sized person (up & down in the plus size range) and had experienced what it feels like to attend yoga classes where I was the only one who had a rubenesque figure! I also wanted to share my love of Yoga and show people who are plus sized that they can do Yoga and really enjoy it."
"I always felt that there had been a shift in the way woman are viewed now days compared to earlier in our history. This is evident in the old paintings in the museums of beautiful rubenesque women with curves and rounded bellies! The name Rubenesque Yoga™ actually came to me back in 1999 when I was thinking about this very thing! I find it interesting that the average sized woman in the U.S. is between a size 12 & 14 and yet all the adds we see every day seem to depict a different average. I believe all women are beautiful regardless of their size and can benefit from yoga. In the style of yoga I teach we take the time to hold the postures, breathe, and feel the postures which connects us with our body, mind, and Spirit giving us a knowing of how beautiful we truly are."
