Fat girl plays yoga, American woman does not fear obesity as a yoga instructor

What do you think of when it comes to yoga? Slim waist? Calm mind? Still a difficult style?

       As a sport with a high degree of tolerance, yoga will help people reach a variety of appeals in different people and produce different effects. For example, this one introduced today: she may not be the "standard" yoga girl in the general concept of the public, but she found confidence in the practice of yoga and found a positive attitude towards life.


       According to the British "Daily Mail" report, Jessica Rihal, a 35-year-old woman from California, is an avid yoga enthusiast. However, she weighed 300 pounds (about 136 kilograms), but she was often ignored by the teacher in yoga class. Without proper guidance, Jessica decided to teach herself yoga. Hard work pays off, she became a yoga instructor, using strength to prove that practicing yoga is not exclusive to thin women.

       It is reported that Jessica is an African-American who also has Indian descent. In 2007, she first tried to do yoga to lose weight. She found that the sport not only exercised, but also helped her overcome anxiety and depression, and she fell in love with yoga. She actively enrolled in various yoga classes run by the community, but the results were not so good. Because of the weight and the fact that they are colored people, some yoga teachers don’t even look at her in class.

       However, Jessica did not recover from this, and her special experience inspired her to be a yoga instructor. In May 2018, Jessica completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training course and became a yoga instructor. Now, she exercises about 5 hours a week and teaches at the Asteya Fitness Center in Costa Mesa, California every Saturday. She is dedicated to helping all her students, including obese women, experience all the benefits of yoga, especially the body. .

       Jessica said: "In fact, yoga originated in northern India 5,000 years ago. It was originally an ancient custom designed by young boys, although it has been 'westernized'. I have Indian descent, I think yoga belongs to Mine. Some yoga postures should also be adjusted to make them more suitable for obese people."

       Yoga makes Jessica more confident. Now, Jessica teaches yoga classes every week, and she also shares photos of her yoga practice on Instagram, the photo sharing site. Although she sometimes receives net comments from netizens, she still maintains a positive attitude.

     "Yoga will change your world view. Appearance is no longer the most important thing in your life. Let us breathe, move, do our own yoga, let others say it. The message conveyed by the media and this society tells us that health It's exclusive to slim, white-skinned, and strong people, but I want to say that this is not the truth. Yoga belongs to everyone, and health belongs to everyone," Jessica said.
