These curvy yoginis prove that yoga is for everyone, no matter your size
You need to follow them on Instagram, now!
You know when a strong-willed woman sets her mind to something, there is absolutely no stopping her. The obstacles, the societal pressures, and even the stereotypes can't deter her from achieving her goals.
This stands true even in the case of fitness where ideally, only a toned-to-perfection woman is looked up to for inspiration.
Defying this stigma are a bunch of some seriously-badass women who prove that fitness has nothing to do with your size. We are talking about the curvy yoginis from across the world, who have taken Instagram by storm with their flexible AF bodies and incredible fitness levels.
Here are a few you need to start following on Instagram right away.
A capture from my first yoga video shoot, I was so nervous and anxious. I can now understand how the shift from behind, to front of the camera can be quite jittery. For others who don't know I'm a media professional making youth content in India. #shootdiaries #curvepower #newbeginning #anxious #bodypositive #havingfun #yogaisfun
Gracing the list first is the Mumbai-based media professional, part-time chef, and yoga enthusiast Dolly Singh. Dolly who started practicing yoga post a serious ankle injury believes in spreading awareness and hence, can be spotted with her yoga mat, laptop, and speakers at various parks around Bandra. We love her confidence.
