In the United States, 80% of woman report feeling insecure about their bodies.  On average, the age girls begin dieting has dropped from 14 to 8 years old! 1 in 10 people struggle with an eating disorder with minority men and women and the LGBTQ+ community being at even higher risk than their peers. That incidence has been on steady incline since mid 2000s.

All bodies deserve to be loved! This training will educate and inspire you to be part of the solution on macro and micro levels. Build a healthy respectful relationship with your body and learn to teach others how to see their body as a friend and ally – no matter how much hate currently exists.

  • Identify types of eating disorders, their co-morbidities and how they present
  • Recognize biases around weight and race, gender, sexuality and age
  • Teach body-positive, trauma sensitive yoga classes – public, private and specialized
  • Incorporate yoga practices and philosophies as interventions for ED beliefs and behaviors
  • Steer conversations away from diet culture and fads
  • Market healthy, inclusive messages on social media
  • Create safe spaces for all bodies sizes, shapes and abilities
