Christy Calahan: Body Size Inclusion
Christy Calahan (she/her) is an RYT 500 and YACEP. She specializes in educating teachers about plus-size inclusivity. A few years ago, Christy sustained an impactful injury that caused her to gain 100 pounds. She had to relearn how to do yoga in her new body, starting from scratch. Unable to find an instructor that could meet her needs, she created techniques, theories, and effective methods for teachers to make their classes accessible for larger-bodied yogis.
