"Yoga For Everyone: 50 Poses for Every Type of Body" focuses on making yoga accessible for non-traditional yoga bodies and people who might feel excluded from mainstream yoga practice.

WINDSOR, Ontario, April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dianne Bondy, social justice activist,

accessible yoga teacher, and the leader of the Yoga For All movement, today announced the publication of her first book, "Yoga for Everyone: 50 Poses for Every Type of Body." The full-color guide documents 50 common poses found in yoga classes today and their variations using a diverse group of yogis to demonstrate the poses. Ten unique sequences and real-life stories from the models featured in the book encourage readers to embrace their bodies as deserving of a yoga practice customized specifically for them.

"Forget what you've heard. Yoga is no longer a practice reserved exclusively for the privileged few: wealthy, thin, young, flexible, white and able-bodied," said Dianne Bondy. "Yoga benefits all bodies regardless of their shape, size, age, ethnicity or ability. It's time that yoga be made available to anyone who wishes to practice."

Yoga participation is on the rise, nearly doubling in the past six years, from 20 million participants in 2012 to nearly 37 million participants in 2018. Increasing numbers of yoga practitioners are coming to the mat in older, larger, and differently-abled bodies. "Yoga for Everyone" welcomes each individual to the practice, giving them permission to customize each pose to fit their body's unique needs.
