Yoga for Plus-Size Women
It is a misconception that Yoga is for the very thin people only. If you are a beginner make sure to check with your physician before starting.
Be sure to wear a plus size sport bra for support and comfortable clothing that will stretch and bend with you.
The Mountain Pose
For more support, the plus size woman may want to use walls. Stand with your back to the wall with your buttocks touching the wall. Focus on one still point in front of you. Gently ease your shoulders and your triceps back against the wall. Lift your arms up, with your elbows bent at 90-degrees. Keep them flat against the wall. If you have a yoga block, try squeezing that between your legs while in position.
The Chair Neck Stretch
Neck stretches are a great way to practice yoga if you’re overweight. It helps to stretch out your spine and back muscles, as well as work your neck and shoulders. Sit straight in a hard-backed chair. Bend your right ear toward your right shoulder, stretch your right arm down toward the ground and hold for a few seconds.
Breathe deeply and at a regular pace. Repeat the movement in the opposite direction. Try moving your chin to your chest and feel the stretch down your shoulders and back.
