“You know it’s a more advanced class?” Croww said the receptionist asked her, and she replied that she’s been practicing yoga for over 17 years.
The receptionist added: “We just don’t see a lot of people who are bigger like you, so remember you can rest in a child’s pose if it’s too hard.”
Croww could check out easier classes within an hour, the woman said, because advanced yoga classes can be too “hard.”
After being insulted by the receptionist’s words, Croww spoke to the teacher before class and faced the same judgment.
“I think she was implying that my body was a little bigger than what she usually sees in this class,” Crowe told the teacher.

“She’s right, you are indeed bigger than we usually see, and the class is more intense,” the teacher replied.
“I’m here right now, and I want to take this class, can I? Are there any other hurdles to jump over?” Crow replied.
