About the Project

aboutYoga is a transformational art designed to bring our mind, body and spirit back into balance. It helps us to appreciate who we are and love the skin that we are in. This book has been a dream of author Dana Smith aka “The Yoga Diva” for many years and thanks to friend and photographer Wanakhavi Wakhisi her dream has become reality.

Her practice began when she was in her final trimester of pregnancy and was key in helping her adjust to new motherhood and everyday stresses of life. She learned how to work with her curves and has been teaching to yogis of all body types for over 10 years.

In popular media only one type of yoga body is highlighted and there is little representation for fuller bodied women. Because of this, many women don’t think they have the “yoga body” and hesitate exploring yoga, even though it has countless benefits.

This book serves as a testament that yoga is for EVERYbody and that no one physical size is better suited for practice. It will celebrate beautiful goddesses of all curvy shapes and sizes and finally allow the beauty of our curves to be recognized in this blessed art called yoga.

The true essence of yoga is what you do from your heart,
not what you do with your body.
