Your body needs to move. Even if you don’t love moving it because it makes you feel even fatter (girl, I relate) it still needs exercise—not only does it need it, but it really deserves it. So, I thought I’d share some awesome videos of beginner’s yoga for plus size with you.

Movement doesn’t have to mean running a marathon or heading to the gym for 20 minutes of cardio. There’s plenty that you can do in your house by yourself that will help make you feel better and give your body what it really needs.
