What is Fat Kid Yoga Club?
Fat Kid Yoga Club is an online community for bigger-bodied people to practice yoga and celebrate their bodies.
Why “Fat Kid”?
I have been a fat kid my entire life. I spent years being ashamed of myself and hating my body. Yoga helped me form a better relationship with my body and I want to share that with others. You don’t have to be “fat” to join – you don’t even have to identify with the word “fat”. But you DO have to respect us.
Why Fat Kid Yoga Club?
Fat people are regularly excluded from “fitness” and “wellness” spaces. Fat Kid Yoga Club provides a safe and accessible way for folks with marginalized bodies to practice yoga. Folks have been asking me for online offerings the last few years and now feels like the right time.
Why a Facebook Group?
For better or for worse, many people still use Facebook. The Facebook group is intended to be a place for people to come together and share their experiences and advice. All are welcome to join regardless of whether or not they are paid members. Join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/322414445358304
Patreon allows me greater control over who access my content.
Why charge a fee for your classes?
Yoga teachers spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours in training and practicing. I teach yoga because it’s FUN and I LOVE working with people. But I also have bills, a lot of student loan debt, and my time is valuable.
How much does it cost?
There are three levels of membership:
- Basic – $1 or more per month ($10 suggested)
- FKYC+ – $35 per month
- FKYC+2 – $60 per month
What do I get?
Basic membership provides access to a growing library of yoga practice videos, with new practices being added each week.
FKYC+ includes access to practice library PLUS one 30 minute coaching call with me.
FKYC+2 includes access to the practice library PLUS TWO 30 minute coaching calls with me.

What happens when I no longer contribute?
I’ll be sad ☹ BUT I understand that life changes happen AND that yoga and/or my classes aren’t for everyone. You’ll lose access to the weekly practice videos but you will get to stay in the Facebook group.
