Yoga isn’t just for slim, elite athletes. Quit trying to steal Dana’s content. Stop bouncing small business.

This action is inherently not yogic... aloyoga are totally missing the point and serving the myth that yoga is for instabikini shots and the body beautiful

"To all the girls that think you're fat because you're not a size zero, you're the beautiful one; it's society who's ugly." -Marilyn Monroe

“You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.”
― Amy Bloom

“Step Away from the Mean Girls…
…and say bye-bye to feeling bad about your looks.
Are you ready to stop colluding with a culture that makes so many of us feel physically inadequate? Say goodbye to your inner critic, and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others.

This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you're too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
― Oprah Winfrey

“You are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. But you won't discover this until you are willing to stop banging your head against the wall of shaming and caging and fearing yourself.”
― Geneen Roth, Women, Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything

Everyone Is Beautiful: Why Body Shaming Needs To Stop
Stop ALL body shaming: fat, skinny, short, tall, tan, pale, curvy, or no curves at all. We're all people and we're all deserving of respect. Is putting others down really making you feel better about yourself?

All Girls Are Gorgeous

Stop comparing yourself to the women around you. Even though Sophia Vergara is beautiful, it doesn't mean that you aren't, because you're not her spitting image. Beauty comes in all different shapes and sizes. There are millions of gorgeous people in the world, so don't assume that you're ugly just because you don't look like some of the women around you.

Say You're Beautiful and goodlooking

While it's healthy to exercise and eat vegetables, it's not healthy to have a negative self image. Even if you're working to change your body, you should still try to see it as a beautiful thing. Don't tear yourself down. Try to see yourself as the sexy woman you are.

Unconditional Love

You don't love your boyfriend less when he puts on a few pounds, do you? Then why would you love yourself less when the same thing happens? Your body belongs to you, so you should cherish it, not criticize it. Treat it like it's one of your children, who you need to love, no matter what.

Stop Trying to Satisfy

If you want to lose or gain weight for yourself, that's fine. Just don't do it for anyone else. You're never going to be able to satisfy others, so don't even bother trying. Listen to Jennifer Aniston and just live your life without thinking too much about how you're viewed by the rest of the world. Their opinions don't matter, anyway.

Allowed to Love

Being plus sized doesn't make you any less of a person. You deserve to be happy and fall in love just like any other human being does. Your weight isn't stopping you from accomplishing anything. If you feel like you're being held back, it's due to your own self doubts. That's why you need to adopt a positive attitude.

Society's Stupidity

Ignore the images of "perfect women" you see on magazine covers and movie posters. Even though society tells you that you should look like those skinny celebrities, you should know better. Real women aren't perfect, so don't push yourself to look like something that doesn't even exist.

Always Embrace Your Weight

Your weight isn't going to stay the same throughout your entire life, so don't freak out when you gain a few pounds. You shouldn't love yourself more when you're skinny than when you're heavy. You're supposed to love yourself, no matter what. No exceptions.

So stop criticizing the image in the mirror and embrace it instead.

No matter how big or small you are, you're a beauty who deserves to be happy with herself. While you should be proud of yourself for every pound you shed, you should also be proud of yourself when your body isn't your idea of "perfect." Are you comfortable with your size, or is it something that you're self-conscious about?
