The Curvy Yogi is an initiative with a vision to go beyond stereotypes surrounding yoga and, more importantly, to break ignorant myths regarding wellness and fitness. It is an open, humble, yet steadfast and grounded invitation for practitioners of all levels, and all body types and limitations to include wellness in their lifestyle through yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, holistic protocols and other mind-body techniques.
