Instagram's Big Gal Yoga is your ultimate body confidence guru
We are mostly used to seeing slim bodies populate yoga classes, where impossible positions are achieved through stretching, breathing and practicing the millenary tradition that came back as one of the trendiest activities out there. But who said yoga is exclusive to only certain body types?
Monkeying around in the sun! Having a great weekend mini vacation in Tahoe! Happy to see two great friend's marry each other at Northstar on Saturday! Such beautiful souls, and to see their love radiate made me so over whelmed with love that I teared up. 💛 Now just playing around Tahoe. 😄 Also, I so excited that it was #InternationalDayofYoga yesterday! Hope all the yogis were out 💚💛💜 Thank you all who partipated in the #SelfLovingYogis challenge! Still time to post if you were late to the challenge. I know I was a bit late posting for you guys!

Instagram account Big Gal Yoga is challenging this assumption and introducing the practice to people of every shape and size. Valerie, a prolific social media user and body-confidence enthusiast, is reshaping the way we think of body image with her posts. Just a few years after she started practicing Yoga, her love for the practice merged with her mission to encourage others to love their bodies and she started being a motivational inspiration for the masses.
