This Plus Size Yogi Is Squishing Skinny Stereotypes With Her Inspirational Photos.

Valerie Sagun loves yoga so much, she wants to begin training to become an instructor. The 27-year-old has been practicing the activity for almost four years. She understands she does not have the standard or expected physique of someone who follows the ancient method. Nonetheless, the self-described bigger bodied person has not let that stop her from following her passion.

Her mantra after all is, “anything you can do, I can do almost.” Sagun has her own Instagram account, Big Gal Yoga, with 100,000 followers. She shares her intense poses like balancing on one leg on a yoga wheel to a headstand.

The yogi has received some negative feedback, but the overall response has been positive. “I’m humbled by the fact that people are really enjoying the visual look of my yoga practice and that I’m inspiring them to try something they never thought they could try,” says Sagun.

This is what your body looks like doing yoga through an X-ray machine.
