Curvy Girl Yoga is a unique yoga class based in Bristol.
Created by Devaki, Curvy Girl Yoga (CGY) offers a safe, supportive environment for all who identify as a woman & are size 16 or more to practice yoga.
Curvy Girl Yoga is, however, more than just a yoga class.
It's a welcoming & friendly community of women who come together to share, to support each other & to celebrate our bodies.
Thankfully attitudes are changing but, we larger women are still made to feel out of place, self conscious & judged.
CGY offers a safe space where we talk openly about our experiences, laugh, lovingly, a lot & practice yoga!
There is no judgement. Ever. On any level.
Come join us!
Come celebrate your beautiful body!
Come practice yoga!
Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned yoga practitioner, you are welcome!
I'm Devaki. I've been a yoga teacher since 2005. It's the longest I've stuck at anything! And, all these years later, I still love teaching & sharing yoga. I graduated from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Teacher Training Programme in 2005. I have attended many workshops & courses with well-known yoga teachers over the years (& indeed, continue to do so) & I integrate all that I learn into what I offer in class.
In 2017, I created Curvy Girl Yoga. My housemate, who was size 20, asked if I did "Fat bird's yoga". "No, but, I can!" I said & Curvy Girl Yoga was born. It has grown exponentially ever since. What's more, I remain the only person in Bristol offering yoga exclusively for fat women! I've had issues with my body all my life. Or, perhaps I should say, other people have had issues with my body...... I firmly believe that any body can do yoga & care passionately about making it available for you in the best way I can.
