Glenys and Aaron welcome Dr. Marc Settembrino to the podcast to talk about his experience with becoming a yogi and creating inclusive yoga classes through Fat Kid Yoga Club.

Marc discussed:
-how yoga helped him feel better in difficult times
-how there is no wrong way to do yoga
-the intersection of LGBTQ+ and fat identities
-letting your body be the guide in how you adapt yoga for you

Marc began practicing yoga in 2015. As a fat, queer, yoga practitioner, they understand that starting a new yoga practice can be intimidating. Therefore, they create inclusive yoga classes that are accessible to every-body, regardless of size, shape, age, strength, or flexibility. Their work has been featured by OM Yoga Magazine and Yoga Journal and they're a SuperFit Hero Body Positive Fitness provider. They earned their Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Central Florida in 2013.

Bonus: Aaron and Glenys talk about their recent internet obsessions (reaction videos!) and geek out about their favorite music…to get straight to the interview, skip to minute 9!
