For some of us, one of the reasons why we do yoga is to help us maintain a healthy body weight or to drop a few pounds. So we were fascinated by Dallas yoga teacher Trina Hall’s decision to gain 40 pounds to show a friend (who Hall says was crying to her about the fear of being a “fat yoga teacher,”) that yoga and life is about much more than that. In this interview with U.S. News & World Report, Hall reveals that she got a lot more than she bargained for, mostly insecurities, angry comments on her blog and less energy.  

“I thought my identity was about how I treated people and the actions I took to make the world a better place,” she says. “But those things were only a piece of my identity. I learned that I was – and still am – very judgmental about physical appearance.”
