CE Workshop | Teaching Yoga for Big Bodies

April 7, 2021, 12pm ET

About This Event

As a plus-size yoga practitioner and teacher, presenter Kady Lafferty of Big Booty Yoga has spent years exploring and learning more physically comfortable ways to access yoga postures and flow more freely in a big body. For big-bodied students, it can be apparent when teachers don’t have knowledge on how to sequence for, adapt to, or support their success in class, which can feel isolating. This 75-minute workshop equips teachers with tools to empower students of all sizes so they will feel seen and appreciated. Walk away with tips and tricks to accommodate curves, hips, bellies, and busts.
