Valerie Sagun es una instructora de yoga de 29 años que vive en San José, California, y su historia llamó la atención del mundo.
Según el sitio BuzzFeed Life, la joven practicó hatha yoga (conjunto de ejercicios físicos, conocidos como asanas diseñados para alinear piel, músculos y huesos) durante los últimos 5 años.
La flexible mujer abrió su cuenta de Instagram Big Gal Yoga hace un par de años. “Al principio, solo hice Tumblr. Pero cuando llegué a 10.000 seguidores y la gente me pedía unirme a Instagram, decidí ir por ello”, contó.
La instructora dijo tener la importante misión de combatir los prejuicios. “Siendo una mujer con curvas y de color, consigo mostrar a muchas personas no representadas que son capaces de cualquier cosa”.
Hey everyone! First class tomorrow at @bethechangeyoga will be at 7pm! It is sold out currently, but Thursday at 7:30pm I will be teaching another class there as well! Lots of spots open! You can register for the class online (recommend for guarantee in class) or you can still drop in before class! As well as class on the 10th at @curvygirllingerie is sold out but hopefully more soon! Also, super side note, would anyone be interested in a 3 day Bahamas Cruise yoga trip? I've never done it before but was thinking it might be fun?! Yoga on the boat and beach? Also, hopefully will be starting to plan a yoga teaching tour! Man, I need an assitant..so much organization skills I lack..oi. ? Anyways…! See you lovely people in class Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday! ?
Hey all, slow on the yoga posting lately. Been needing some of my own time just doing life stuff. Though I do feel like I need my own motivation right now. Been working with so many business type yoga stuff that it takes the fun out of just wanting to practice. Even I need some instruction with my practice so that I don't overthink what I should do. I get to comfortable with myself and need to change things up. I'll hopefully start to reach out to studios to visit so I can travel around teaching soon!
#InternationalYogaDay to all of you who I've met in classes or in person, and ones I've yet to meet. One of these days! Enjoy yourself and enjoy your practice. ? Going to treat myself to some Kundalini tonight at @bethechangeyoga ! Don't forget that I'm teaching there as well on July 6th! Sign up through their website!
