Through this transformation the rest will follow as you wish and anything is possible. We call it Big A#%! yoga so that everyone knows they are coming to a place where they can laugh and be comfortable with who they are. Any other name just wouldn’t be as fun! Who should come to Big A#%! Yoga? Anyone who is plus size or just feels out of shape, and just wants to be a yoga class with others who are in the same boat. There is no weight requirement – but be aware that these classes are meant for those who are plus size or close to it.
