Rachel Townsend became interested in yoga in 2010 and began her yoga journey learning from books and DVDs. Feeling hesitant to walk into regular yoga classes as a plus-size beginner, she searched out larger bodied teachers and discovered how critical in-person instruction from a good teacher is. She began taking classes, workshops, and many different training sessions from a wide variety of teachers (of all shapes and sizes), pulling out what works best for plus-sized bodies. She completed her RYT-200 certification at Ganesha Yoga and Fitness and has been teaching yoga since 2014.
Rachel Townsend instructs the following:
8-week class series:
“As a plus-sized yogi, I know that sometimes it can be hard to feel comfortable in typical yoga classes, especially if you are just starting out on your yoga journey. In my class, all of the poses, modifications, and spoken directions will be geared toward a plus-size body type. Because I practice and teach (and live!) in a larger body, I understand how to help make the practice work for you. I can’t wait to meet you on the mat!” — Rachel
Plus-size Yoga will stretch, strengthen, and help bring you home to your body. Props will make each pose feel comfortable, and you will be working with the body that you have today – exactly where you are. Grow your yoga practice with joy and kindness by linking breath with movement. And having a great time!
