I'm fairly new to yoga and have a lot of questions about practicing yoga with a plus size body. As much as I love the teachers at my studio, none of them are really equipped to answer my questions--I've been to a bunch of different classes and I am consistently the heaviest one (by far)!
I was wondering if there are any more advanced yogis on here. If so, how are you able to do challenging poses (like crow pose or scorpion pose)? I feel like being overweight would make that extremely difficult, if not impossible...did you have to lose a substantial amount of weight before you were able to do them?
Also, I apologize if this is a stupid question, but how quickly is it normal to advance in yoga? When will I no longer be a "beginner"?
Thanks in advance for your input.
