Meet Jessica Rihal, a 300-pound woman who has become a yoga instructor and teaches weekly yoga classes.
The 35-year-old who lives in Irvine, California was inspired to become an instructor herself after being ignored by slim instructors due to her weight during classes.
She said that she wanted to help those who might also feel ignored find joy in yoga and to prove that it's not just for thin people.
Rihal completed her yoga teacher training last year and now practices yoga five hours a week. She realized that yoga could ease her anxiety, soon after trying it for the first time in 2007. (Photos: VCG)
