Kady Lafferty founded Big Body Yoga (BBY, formerly Big Booty Yoga) when yoga drastically improved her life at a time when she was struggling with mental health, accompanied with a lifelong battle with body image and self-worth. Often the only plus-sized person taking or teaching yoga class and recognising the inequity of representation in yoga, Kady intentionally created the BBY space to welcome and celebrate all body types and lived experiences on the yoga mat. BBY is a financially accessible online studio that offers all-levels yoga classes, music themed events, teacher training, workshops and retreats. Above all else, BBY is a vessel to remind you that you matter.
So, Why the brand name change?
Originally Big Booty Yoga, Founder Kady Lafferty shifted the brand to Big Body Yoga (BBY) at the beginning of 2022. The core of BBY is and has always been a focus on radical self acceptance and the importance of inclusion and equity in the yoga space. With these concepts at the forefront of the intention of BBY, it became impossible to turn away from the potential impact the brand name could cause. Throughout history- and especially contemporary American pop culture and media- Black female bodies have faced objectification, cultural appropriation and hypersexualization for the purpose of profit. If Big Booty Yoga was in any way contributing to this impact, it was something that was vastly out of alignment with the intention of the brand. So, a change was needed- Big Booty Yoga was rebranded Big Body Yoga in 2022 to align intention with impact.
