What’s the Difference Between Thinspo and Fitspo? Absolutely Nothing. | "If you cannot look at these women and be inspired in your fitness, then you aren’t looking for fitness inspiration. If you can only look at one thin exact body type for your inspiration, then what you’re seeking is that body. It’s disingenuous to try to dress up your thinspiration as having anything to do with fitness."
"Venus with Biceps: A Pictorial History of Muscular Women" "There is something profoundly upsetting about a proud, confident, unrepentantly muscular woman. She risks being seen by her viewers as dangerous, alluring, odd, beautiful or, at worst, a sort of rare show. She is, in fact, a smorgasbord of mixed messages. This inability to come to grips with a strong, heavily muscled woman accounts for much of the confusion and downright hostility that often greets her.” David L. Chapman

Do you have a bigger body? Are you intimidated to practice yoga because of it? It’s true in the culture of fitness, and by association, yoga, we’re often surrounded by images of sleekly slim yogis flexing their lanky limbs on the mats next to us, leading the classes, or plastered in front of us in ads and magazines. It’s enough to turn you into a closet yogster, or not try at all, and that’s just not cool with us! “I started my practice because I was tired of being the biggest person in the classroom,” said Michael Hayes, who runs Buddha Body Yoga in Union Square for “big people.” Tuesday’s Daily News features Mr. Hayes, a 250-lb instructor who started Buddha Body, specially targeted towards “big people.” Studios wouldn’t give him prime-time slots because they “they assumed people wouldn’t come,” so Hayes branched off on his own. In your face! But, perhaps that’s just what needed to happen, eh? We think everyone should feel comfortable to participate in the practice and so we’re really digging the efforts of those out there, like Michael Hayes, who are creating the spaces and providing the setting where all can feel welcome. Stick figures, full figures and everyone in between!
Meet 97-year-old IDA KEELING. She ran her first sprint at 67, in an attempt to lift a depression brought on by the drug-related deaths of two sons. "People flew past me, but after it was over, I felt relieved, like I ran out my sadness." In 2012 she broke the U.S. sprint record for her age group. Her Note to Her Younger Self? "Don't wait for somebody to love you; love yourself. Do what you need to do, not what you want to do. Eat for nutrition, not for taste. And try to stay calm if you can."

Headscarves and long tunics don’t stop Iranian women from practising parkour
"It's a dangerous sport, not recommended for girls, my women friends warned me," she says. "But, thanks to Allah, I made the right decision and didn't listen to them. Now they say: 'It's great, you mustn't stop now!'. I like the competitive spirit at regattas, but above all I like battling against the men,"

"Take the first step. Don’t get caught up in planning. “I want to start lifting weights so first I need to get stronger. I want to be a yogi so I need to get more flexible first.” Do you know how people get strong? They lift weights. Do you know how yogis do backbends? They practice yoga."
Body positive yoga: stop postponing your life until you lose weight.
