We are challenging contemporary thinking about yoga by offering people in real bodies a practice that is accessible and fun.
Doing anything for the first time can be scary, especially if it involves tight fitting pants....
You have questions. We have answers. Join us at the studio for a 4 week series where we teach you the basics. We will cover the basic knowledge, information and skills you need to be able to hold your own in almost any yoga class you walk into. This series is body positive (and we really mean that, see more about this below). Our studio will never shame you or make you feel bad about what you can or cannot do. We want yoga to be a fun experience for you. Give it a try! Tuesday nights starting April 19th from 7-8:30 for only $89. Sign up below!
I'm a yoga instructor/studio owner but I'm not what you think. I'm not a human Gumby. I don't have legs that can twist around themselves or arms that can reach around numerous body parts and still meet lovingly behind my back. My two kids later, still look pregnant, Buddha belly gets in the way during several poses. My voluptuous shape means I'm constantly looking for jeans with more stretch and zero buttons. My constant attempt to build strong enough abs to do all those crazy poses I see on Instagram can be futile. Sitting in meditation was at first challenging, oh and it continues to be! Still, I love my practice. I love how it keeps me strong, calm(er), and mobile. I love the teachings. I love the challenge. I'm a yogi through and through.
When I noticed that at every studio I went to, I was the only one in a body that screamed "I love broccoli but that doesn't mean I don't eat ice cream too" I knew I had to do something. I opened The Yoga Casa which I believe is the first (and only) truly body positive yoga studio in the DFW area. At The Yoga Casa, you are accepted for who you are, in the body you are in.
What is The Yoga Casa like? Think riots not diets, body positivity over body shame, love over hate, as well as radical acceptance and community where all people are treated with dignity and respect. Stop in and see for yourself!
