Christina Wherry

Creator of Thick Girl Yoga

As the Owner and Creator of Thick Girl Yoga L.A., Christina has represented her brand at numerous events. Never one to back away from an ‘offer’ or an ‘opportunity’, the whole-body wellness advocate participated in various events focusing on healing and wellness where she shared meditation, yoga, and, in some cases, womb wellness, information. Some of these events include L.A. Care Yoga & Meditation, Supr Fest Vegan Festival, LMU Yoga Day, Soul Long Beach Festival, Senior Yoga (at Whittier College in Whittier, CA), and Nappywood. When the opportunity to model for Athleta Inc. (whose parent company is Gap Inc.) arrived, Christina jumped at the chance! She, along with her daughter, modeled yoga/fitness clothing for the ‘Power of She’ Campaign in the fall of 2019.  This opportunity led to two more assignments for the ‘mommy-daughter duo’ as they signed on to model in the summer and fall Athleta Inc. campaigns for 2020.

Christina created and hosted Thick Girl Yoga LA Aligned Chakra Yoga & Meditation Training, Thick Girl Yoga LA Beach Day, Rebirth Goddess Circle, The Art Of Femininity: Waistbeads & Yoni Steams, 90’s Hip Hop Thick Girl Flow Workshop, Mindful Mamas of Yoga, and Self Care Sunday’s Pop up Yoga Class. And expanding on the ‘I can!’ attitude of the Aries, this true Piscean appeared on podcasts spreading her message and purpose.


She can be heard on Black Womxn Healing Pod, and on Avocado & Honey. Additionally, she was featured in an article on Medium.com about her focuses on ‘body-positivity’, mediation, and combining neo-soul music with yoga.
