Description

Drawing on the philosophy and history of the body positivity movement, Donna Noble presents a radical re-examination of teaching inclusive yoga classes by breaking down stereotypes and demystifying yoga.

By sharing accessible tools for everything from marketing a body-positive class to setting the scene in the space, using appropriate language and considering consent and touch, Noble demonstrates why every body is a yoga body - no matter what shape or size. With guidance on modifying poses for larger bodies, as well as chair-based sequences, this resource helps yoga teachers to ensure that the benefits of yoga are available to everyone.

With practical tips, as well as information on social justice and body-positive yoga off the mat, Teaching Body Positive Yoga is a well-rounded resource that gives yoga teachers the confidence to host inclusive and welcoming classes for all.

Featured Reviews

This is a thoughtful, encouraging, and thorough book written to yoga teachers on how to lead a “body positive” yoga class. From language to props, this author gives so many useful and helpful ideas on how to make “every body” comfortable, welcome and successful to practice yoga. Thank you Netgalley, Jessica Kingsley Publishers and Donna Noble for this eARC in exchange for my honest review.
