I was doing a lot of hot yoga classes

and I was just really uncomfortable in class

having to wear these really tight uncomfortable sports bras

and I'd see like, these guys practicing next to me

in like, these itty bitty little brief shorts,

and it just like really kind of annoyed me,

especially considering that yoga is about being comfortable

and about getting in your body,

and so I just felt like I had this literal barrier

that was preventing me from fully enjoying that flow.

The sports bras and all of those different things

can be so cumbersome, and it was super freeing.

I mean, there was a definitely

a couple points where I was like,

Ooh, we're dangling a little bit too much,

but just more from a comfort perspective

than from a self-conscious perspective.

The very first time I did it, I felt powerful.

I felt really in touch with my body.

It's been cool to see other women

discover that same freedom.

I really wanted to make it a point for the yoga

to be accessible no matter what your body type is.

One of the first things I hear,

especially from like, larger chested women

is like, Oh, well, I won't be able to do that.

You know, My body's not gonna behave,

so I really wanted to be mindful

that the flow is accommodating,

no matter what your body shape or size is.

Doing more work on self-confidence and self-love

can really help get you there,

and I think this space is a beautiful space to create

that sense of safety and comfort to give you

the confidence that you can take out in the world.
