Curvy Yoga®

Love Yourself & Your Body a Little More Each Day

by Anna Guest-Jelley



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Have you wanted to try yoga but wondered if it was for you? Or perhaps you were uncertain whether you could carry out the poses? As the creator of a body-affirming yoga phenomenon that embraces people of all shapes and sizes, Anna Guest-Jelley has written an encouraging book that is about to become your go-to resource. In Curvy Yoga®, she shares stories about body shaming with poignancy and even sometimes with humor. Guest-Jelley also reveals how things started to change once she found yoga—the last thing the self-declared non-athlete ever thought was possible. In addition, Guest-Jelley shares how yoga can help you connect with your body and why accepting your body doesn’t mean giving up on it. Finally, in the appendix, she presents a series of pose instructions and options to make yoga work for your body—not the other way around.
“I want every woman who has ever cursed her thighs, sucked in her stomach when she got out of bed naked in front of her partner, hated another woman for being thinner, or otherwise judged her body to read this book. Anna’s stories will heal you. Her yoga suggestions will liberate you. This book is a transmission of something essential that so many of us need. Please read it and then give copies to all your friends. I love this book!”
—Jennifer Louden, author of The Woman’s Comfort Book and The Life Organizer
“Finally. A book that puts our culture’s destructive body-shaming to rest and gives women the tools they need to forge a new, more loving relationship with their bodies. In Curvy Yoga, Anna shares her own journey from shame and self-loathing to compassionate curiosity and self-love with gentle humor and great insight. In doing so, she shows every woman who has ever struggled with body acceptance how to ‘love herself to inner freedom.’ The practices she offers and the wisdom she dispenses encourage us to be kind and take time to get to know our bodies not as adversaries, but as friends and allies; to soften the way we treat and speak about them; and to embrace what we need to feel joyful and whole.” 
—Linda Sparrowe, former editor-in-chief of Yoga International, and author of Yoga At Home: Inspiration for Creating Your Home Practice
