Hey everyone, my name is Valerie Sagun, more known by as Big Gal Yoga. I have been posting my yoga journey online starting on Tumblr and eventually moving onto Instagram where I've had the most exposure with up to 138k followers. I have been featured on Buzzfeed, Refinery 29, Huffington Post, Elite Daily, and many more.

Through my Go Fund Me, my followers helped support me to be able to attended the teacher training the beginning of January 2016 where I was certified as a Hatha Yoga teacher at Seven Centers Yoga Arts in Sedona, Arizona.

Since becoming a yoga teacher I have taught locally in the San Francisco Bay Area. Being a yoga teacher in a general sense is not ment to be a high paying job. It is more for giving back to others and helping others through they're own yoga journey. With the many followers I have, I want to be able to give back to them. Through Patreon I want to use what I make to give back to my followers by being able to teach them all. The best way I want to interact is by touring and traveling to many of the states and countries that are welcoming me to teach. There are many who follow me who want to learn and start their own yoga practice, but are not sure on where to start. Seeing myself as a bigger woman practicing yoga encourages them to want to try when they never thought that could.

This would help me by giving me a stable income so I can reach out to more people without having to classes at high prices and is accessible. As well has hopefully helping me to find a space that I can have a home base to bring videos to people as well.

I am grateful for everyone who has supported me, and thank you for helping me give back to others! I’m privileged to be able to do what I love.
