  1. Oh! I would love to have access to this!! I am a yoga teacher and I am definitely a round body. I work to make my class accessible to all, and I search for inclusive phrasing, terms and variations in each of my classes. I have even looked to travelling to TO to take a workshop with Yoga for Round Bodies, but with two kids in tow, it would be almost impossible.
    I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed..Pick me!! lol

  2. I’ve never been athletic, but I am still healthy and mostly in shape – that shape just doesn’t happen to be petite with a flat stomach! While I do my best to be myself in yoga class, I sometimes feel inferior even when I can do the full expression of a posture. I don’t see myself as looking as graceful as others without a belly, and get caught up in judgements. I would love to know a few tricks, mental and physical, to help me feel more confident in my yoga practice, especially when practicing with others!

  3. i should win because i am just starting my yoga career and need al the info i can get! i just finished my 200 Hour so I am now a yoga teacher 🙂

  4. Would love this session. I am both student and teacher. I took the training with Tiina and would love the opportunity to have a class with her. What a fabulous teacher!!!

  5. I am overweight since a few years, because of hormonal problems. I have never been a sporty person but my weight lately starts becoming a problem for my articulation : climbing stairs and my knees hurt, a lot of tendinitis also…
    I have started yoga so I can maybe solve this problem, but I have noticed that in traditional yoga class, some position are more difficult because of all the extra fat I have… Sadly, most of the teacher don’t know how to adapt it and don’t give me any trick…
    This is why having this class will be a way for me to enjoy yoga class without the frustration that it gives me sometimes, so I can stay healthy.

  6. I am a teacher and I have a round body – I would love to learn how to make postures more accessible to my students.
