I would have really appreciated a plus sized instructor!
Honestly, I have been doing yoga for awhile and learned that shape and balance have nothing to do with each other. Obviously, there is a weight distribution problem but overall some people just have a better natural balance. My co-worker is larger than me with a rather severe apple shape and she can do poses I STILL can't master after a year and she did it in a month!
