What you watching? Yoga, Self-Love, and Fat Liberation Edition

Hey friends! Earlier this week, Kelly-Ann Maddox interviewed me for her Self-Love September series on YouTube. I had so fun talking to Kelly-Ann about yoga, self-love, and fat liberation, I figured that y’all might also have some great resources. 

So, It’s time for another community share, what videos/documentaries have you watched about any of these topics that have really resonated with you? Leave a comment below and share the love with our community!

Introducing Fat Kid Yoga Club Unlimited

I did not intend to become an online yoga studio this year, but the COVID-19 Pandemic created an opportunity I had never considered. Historically, Fat Kid Yoga Club was in a weekly, in-person yoga class offered in New Orleans. I created the Patreon community for folks who wanted to practice with me but couldn’t do so in-person. 

Since May, there have been two ways to practice with me: pre-recorded practices on Patreon or live via Zoom. Patreon members paid a monthly fee for on-demand access to pre-recorded practices. To practice with me live, you needed to purchase passes for individual classes. Recently, someone asked if it was possible to pay a monthly fee for unlimited live classes – something which I never considered. Thanks to their inquiry, I’m excited to offer Fat Kid Yoga Club Unlimited!

Beginning today, Fat Kid Yoga Club Unlimited Members received BOTH on-demand access to pre-recorded practices AND unlimited live practices with me each month, all for ONE fee! Typically, I will offer 10 live practices per month, the full schedule is available here.

To join, visit the Patreon community and select one of three Unlimited Tiers (Equity $35, Standard $70, Supporter $108). If you’re already a member, you’ll need to edit your membership level

Please note that Unlimited Membership is valid for the calendar month. For example, September 1 through September 30 and will not be prorated. You will be charged the full amount when you sign up and Patreon will automatically renew your subscription on the 1st of every month unless you change your membership level.

If you sign up today (9/7), you will be able to join the remaining September practices:

  • Hatha – Saturday 9/12 @ 10 AM CDT
  • Hatha – Sunday 9/12 @ 12 PM CDT
  • Restorative – Thursday 9/17 @ 6:30 PM CDT
  • Hatha – Saturday 9/19 @ 10 AM CDT
  • Hatha – Sunday 9/20 @ 12 PM CDT
  • Hatha – Saturday 9/26 @ 10 AM CDT
  • Hatha – Sunday 9/27 @ 12 PM CDT

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Celebrate Yourself! Back to School Yoga Challenge – Day 7

Y’all, I can’t think of a better way to end our week than with Heather Small’s Proud. 

I’m keeping it simple today, so please leave a comment and let us know one thing you are proud of this week. As for me, I’m proud of myself for getting a new sign up system for my live classes figured out (in addition to starting a new semester and leading a yoga challenge this week lol). It’ll go live in September, but you can get a sneak peek here.

I hope you all have a great weekend, and for those of us on the Gulf Coast… stay safe!

Go with the Flow? Back to School Yoga Challenge – Day 6

Y’all – this post has literally been an all day production! Our theme is to go with the flow and find your edge without going over and technology sure helped me practice that! Needless to say, this post is finally up. 

Today, I offer you two flow sequences that move through standing on two legs to balancing on one foot. I hope you have as much fun practicing these sequences as I did filming them. These are among my absolute favorite postures! Leave a comment and let us know which poses you tried and how they made you feel.

Or if journaling is more your speed today, I offer you the prompt, “how do you know when you on the edge?”
