Inspiring Video: Yoga for People of All Sizes

Plus size video

Any woman of any size can do yoga. This inspiring video produced by Canadian plus-size outfitter Penningtons shows that beauty, strength, and confidence come in different sizes, shapes, and heights. Penningtons has started the #iwontcompromise movement for people to celebrate doing what they love, wearing what makes them feel good, and being who they are without compromise.

The video states common prejudices and misconceptions about why plus size women shouldn’t do yoga. Dianne Bondy (yoga teacher, social justice activist, and leading voice of the Yoga For All movement) proves them wrong again and again, and shows that weight says nothing about what your body can do.
