Episode 32: How to Stop Listening to the Bullshit Stories We Tell Ourselves with Big Booty Yoga

Kady Lafferty, known to many of you as Big Booty Yoga, is showing women that anyone—regardless of background, experience, or body type—can practice yoga. She leads themed classes that sellout to hundreds of people in the Denver area, taught at Red Rocks, and will lead a yoga practice at Wanderlust.

There’s something about Kady that just draws you in. Her Big Booty Yoga events have 10+ people who never practiced yoga before, and people feel some sort of innate trust in her. After launching her career in social work, Kady switched to do yoga and wellness full-time. She shares when she experiences self-doubt, how she makes time to put herself first, and a new program she’s working on.
