Big Gal Yoga Teaches Body Positivity in a Unique and Inspiring Way

September 19, 2015 2 min read

There's been a lot of talk about the yoga community lately, where individuals and communities alike seek to promote that the practice isn't merely meant for one type of background or body. Included in that movement is Valerie, who is better known as Big Gal Yoga. Valerie works to help all shapes and sizes feel encouraged to take on the practice of yoga. With more than 50,000 followers just on Instagram, Big Gal Yoga has been creating a stir ever since the yogi began posting photos and videos of her personal yoga practice online three years ago. "Through my own yoga practice I've come to love my body, and accept it as it is now," Valerie says on her GoFundMe page. Big Gal Yoga "My practice has also given me the strength to get over the mental hurdle of my own self doubt when it comes to enjoying the fun and beautiful things in life." Valerie is now further encouraging people far and wide to except their bodies and stop telling themselves that they can't do something just because of their size. Big Gal Yoga This note came with the above photo that she posted on Instagram: "I debated to post this or not, and had a long post that sounded controversial. Then it just came down to showing my chubby body up close, and appreciating my body now. All of us have body issues whether you are big or small, but it's good to just take the time to look at yourself and just love it as it is now. Whether you are on a weight loss journey or just learning to love yourself slowly. [...] I hope that everyone can take the time to look at themselves and see such a beautiful human being." What do you think of Big Gal Yoga and her encouraging words of wisdom and positivity? Source: A Plus Do you follow us on Instagram? snapchat code

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
