Yes, girls with curves can kick butt at yoga, too.
If you've ever nixed the idea of trying yoga because you assume your body type doesn't mesh with the bendy people who have been doing downward dog for years, we'd like to introduce you to someone who's going to prove you wrong.
Sept 7th - Day 29 of the #FlexinASweat Yoga Wheel challenge with @gypsetcity and @biggalyoga Sponsors: @breakin_a_sweat @fractal.9 @laviebohemeyoga Wow, last day of the yoga wheel challenge!!! It's been fun learning and trying out new things with the wheel this month that I wasn't sure of trying before! Still being suprised and proud of myself for accomplishing new types of practice. So happy that you joined with @gypsetcity @breakin_a_sweat @fractal.9 and @laviebohemeyoga for this challenge, and you all rock! Just FYI I fell off the wheel so many times practicing this 😅!

Twenty-eight-year-old Valerie Sagun's Big Gal Yoga Instagram feed is everything you need for inspiration to get your butt to class. According to Buzzfeed the San Jose, California native has been practicing for four years and her poses are insanely impressive.
Run, don't walk, to her Instagram account and you'll be greeted with photos of this gal twisting into all sorts of contortions beautifully. She looks so confident, powerful and strong you can't help but want to try the moves as well…or just be her best friend. Because, seriously, this woman is a bad ass.

"I've never really felt self-conscious about my body during yoga classes," Sagun told Buzz Feed. "For me, yoga is all about the mind and positive thinking. I get anxiety and depression, and practicing has helped me through that."
