Yoga is on opportunity to participate in the world. Your practice is the space that breaks the illusion of separateness and builds a community of Oneness. The Curvy Yogi values share an inclusive acceptance of practitioners regardless of their shape, size, gender, faith, sexual orientation or limitations. Representation matters. It begins with us representing ourselves and taking ourselves seriously.
The entire philosophy of yoga is based on integrity. The yoga journey finds meaning when all areas of the practice - authenticity, education, accessibility and safety are infused with the spirit of ethical codes of conduct and sustainable standards. The Curvy Yogi is committed to integrating authentic yoga with contemporary sociocultural values to bring a more present experience to the yogi - both on and off the mat.
Everybody, every body, can experience a transformation in yoga. Everyone is entitled to happiness and a good practice includes the tools to teach you how to bring in the confidence and allow yourself the freedom to be who you are and be happy with making that choice. The Curvy Yogi is that essential conversation with ourselves and the community that we are enough the way we are. Our classes leave our practitioners feeling healthier, happier and good about themselves in the body they are in. In our programs, we address body image and body shaming, eating disorders, clothing and fashion and even relationships - with ourselves and with others.

What The Curvy Yogi participants have to say
Luvena always manages to take it one notch higher, every time!! I've been her student of anatomy and am so grateful at her ability to dumb things down :) She's so in the moment and fun that you can't help but learn. More than anything I love how she breaks all stereotypes ... She has taught me that no matter where my body is at the moment, whether you've broken a leg, hurt your back, feeling a couple of KGs over, or even absolutely mad at the world, yoga adapts. More power to you good teacher!!
My first introduction to Luvena was during the TTC Classes.. The anatomy and physiology classes are still imprinted within. Even after that she has helped and guided me till date and I love doing her sessions coz she explains things in a very simple way ( I come from a non science background). Her sessions are never dull, always full of life inspite of the fact that I sit miles away and attend them on live on zoom.
Luvena is a true example of an Urban Yogi. Her pragmatic approach to yoga resonates with most modern day practitioners. Personally, I am grateful to have been mentored by her and also made a friend in the process. Her style of teaching yoga by linking the ancient art and modern science establishes a strong connect between the student, subject and teacher. I would highly recommend Luvena’s coaching/teaching to anyone seeking wellness & mindfulness.
Totally amazing and relaxed while teaching and learning - more power to you luvena...
Wishing you all the very best and liking forward to many more sessions that you conduct the year round.
