About Buddha Body Yoga

Yoga increases flexibility, creates a feeling of well-being, changes movement and thought patterns, develops better proprioception, but is frankly often beyond the ability of most physically large, overweight or rotund people, or people with injuries.

That’s where Buddha Body Yoga comes in. In Buddha Body Yoga, we take standard yoga poses and adjust, modify, and adapt them so that larger, overweight or injured people are able to successfully practice. By using supportive yoga gear (bolsters, pillows, blocks, belts, yoga ropes, and physioballs) we allow people to gradually improve their alignment, tone, balance, and flexibility.
