I’ve done lots of different yoga classes in my life and Supportive Yoga for Larger Bodies gave me the tools so that I can navigate any class with greater ease because I learned how to modify poses for my body.

This is a warm and welcoming class that has made it easy to restart a yoga practice, in the body that I have now, without reservation or self judgment. A unique offering in the DMV as far as I know. - Zori
Supportive Yoga for Larger Bodies has been a joyful addition to my week! I leave feeling strong and supported both physically and mentally. Michelle creates an environment of safety and true neutrality that is so beneficial to anyone of any size doing the work of unlearning diet culture and appreciating, as she says, "the body you are in today." We embrace props and modifications, and learn to really tune into what our bodies want and need. This class is the most sustainable, rewarding, and continuously enjoyable yoga experience I've had in my 10 years of practice. See you there! - Rebecca
