Dana Falsetti is living proof that you should never let your body stop you from fulfilling your dreams.

For years Falsetti suffered from depression and a binge-eating disorder, but when she discovered yoga her life began to change for the better.

"I was just holding myself back from doing things because I was heavy," she says in the video above. "And I let that just be an excuse for everything in my life."
