Yoga for Larger Bodies – Documentary Animation

Yoga for Larger Bodies is an animated documentary of one woman’s experience of being a plus-sized yoga instructor. It is the origin story of London’s first yoga class specifically for larger bodied individuals. Uniquely, and in keeping with the themes of union, meditation, and connection, the animation and all of the images it contains is formed of a single, continuous line. It’s a beautiful story with all *kinds* of health (mental, physical, social) equally valued. Please share!

The animation is a collaboration between myself as animator and its narrator, yoga instructor and proprietress of London’s Light Yoga Space, Janice Kate Fisher.

The animation is part of an ongoing series I’m creating for the Fat Experience Project. If you have a story to tell, please contact me there!

  1. Wow! So powerful!

    Love the soundtrack/chanting used in the background. What is it?

    Thanks.

    • Hi Shannon! Thanks – so glad you liked it. The chanting is Janice Kate Fisher (the narrator of the animation). She does these chants to begin and end each yoga session, so we incorporated them in the animation to echo the structure of the sessions themselves. She has a lovely voice, doesn’t she?
