The "Curvy Yoga" Debate

It's been a trend recently for studios to offer "full-figured" or "curvy" yoga classes, based on the idea that some poses in yoga are not easy for people of all shapes and sizes as perhaps we would like to believe. Many in the yoga community have opined about the subject, stating that yes, curvy yoga is a good way to diminish self-esteem issues that a typical yoga class might present for a full-figured person; or no, that having separate classes goes directly against yoga's philosophy of unity. Check out this article on YogaDork for more information. How do you feel about the subject?
