Angie Never of Yoga Enlarged is passionate about creating and protecting space for bodies of all sizes to experiment with movement. In this talk, she recognizes the parts of ourselves that make self-love hard and offers a strategy for welcoming them into a compassionate practice.
Angie Never was introduced to yoga in 1998 and instantly fell in love with the strength and possibility she felt in her body on the mat. After more than a decade of personal practice, she transitioned into teaching to share her passion for delightful movement with students of all levels. In 2014, inspired by her own experiences as a fat woman in physical classes and concepts of radical self-love, she and Joyce Eubanks created Yoga Enlarged (formerly Big Asana), a yoga class for the plus-size population that was the first of its kind in the area.
She is also the founding director of Sacred Shimmy Tribal Bellydance, a tribe of improvisational dancers and musicians who have become known for their energetic, joyful, and powerful performance style.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
