Looking Back: More to Love in 2016!

Rachel Estapa

2016 was quite the year…a lot of ups and downs for sure, we lost music icons who made our lives vibrant, rode the waves of an unprecedented U.S. election, and even got a taste of arctic air much sooner than we were ready for.

But let’s not forget: we did A LOT of More to Love Yoga - in person with me in Boston and from afar (via #MoretoLoveYoga). Together, us More to Lovelies did a combined 1,110 hours of yoga during 120 classes full of students of all shapes and sizes. You rocked your yogi-self in awesome photos. You shared your yoga practice with others which sparked even more people saying “Hey, I’m a yogi too!”

So I want to share with you some of the peaks of what has been a truly More to Lovin' year.

We started off 2016 with a bang as More to Love’s class was featured in the Somerville Scout, complete with a full two pages in their magazine of More to Lovelies doing their thing. After that, it was on to Boston Magazine.

In March, we kicked-off a 12 week MTLYoga series over at Harvard. One of my personal goals came true as WCVB's local signature TV show Chronicle visited our class – and maybe you discovered MTL because of this. It was so special and I was happy to share it with so many of you!

In the warmer months, we danced our curvy booties off with the incredible Regan Chastain of Dances With Fat, partook in a photoshoot out at More to Love’s yoga-home Kripalu (I’m an ad now!), and had the honor of being keynote speaker at Boston Curvy Fashion Week. Bonus, More to Love’s Eyewear Collection was onsite to help ladies look outstanding in our frames.

In the fall, we started the More to Love Yoga Essentials Series, went on the road to speak and teach at a Women’s Empowerment Retreat, and celebrated More to Love Yoga’s first birthday.

Looking forward to 2017, some pretty exciting things are coming your way – a special New Year’s Day class, new workshops with Boston-area partners, and I’m very excited to announce More to Love will be the featured class at March’s Namaste Saturday at the Museum of Fine Arts.

WHEW. WOW. So yeah, we did some big things! Without your support and belief in your own right to enjoy yoga and your body, none of this would be possible.

So I thank you! More to Love thanks you!
