Podcast Interview in the Movement Series: Body Positive Yoga with BK Yoga

In this episode of Eat the Rules, I’m continuing the movement series where I’m joined by Alicia Ferguson and Paris Alexandra of BK Yoga Club, the first Black women owned body positive yoga studio in the US. We’re talking about how yoga helped them cultivate a better relationship with their bodies and how it can be used to practice compassion and acceptance.

We also talk about why they saw a need for a body positive yoga studio and how they are doing things differently.

In This Episode, We Talk About

  • Their relationships to their bodies growing up and how it led to the work they do now,
  • That beauty is not a requirement or destination,
  • How not seeing yourself represented can influence what you feel you can do,
  • What inspired them to start BK Yoga Club,
  • Their work towards creating inclusivity in the wellness industry and centering Black and brown women,
  • The messages that are missing in mainstream yoga,
  • How they remove the influence of diet culture from their studio,
  • The importance of meeting people where they’re at, instead of making decision for them,
  • How they value and promote self-determination in their work,
  • How the philosophies of yoga can help facilitate a better relationship with the body,
  • Advice for someone looking to start a yoga practice,
