Description

I came to Yoga to heal a broken heart, to find some peace and clarity.... I had no idea it would be the path to healing my body image issues.

After decades of believing that if my body just looked a certain way I would achieve happiness the sad reality set in….. Happiness is not at the end of any diet. Happiness is an inside job and Yoga brought me to this conclusion – but there was a problem still – my body and it’s inability to look like a “Yoga Body”. And then I realized it’s really quite simple – the last thing you need to worry about in Yoga is your body – Yoga is the path to get out of your own way. Yoga is the path to help your soul shine through and THIS is all that matters. Want a Yoga Body? Do Yoga.

Prior to completing my Yoga Teacher Training in 2015 and immediately after my training; I was screaming "LEARN TO LOVE YOUR BODY" from the rooftops! I hosted very successful Body Image Workshops - and I would like to think I helped a few Women at least get on the path to Body Acceptance.

Having said all of that, I have to be completely honest, my efforts to overcome my body image issues left me forgetting about my body and it's physical and spiritual needs. Some of the tools I had used in Yoga resulted in emotional by-passing and nearly ignoring some big red-flags about my mental well-being. I was also growing very weary of these conversations; about weight, about our bodies, about our worthiness being attached to how our bodies look and our appearance. All of this snow-balled into really forcing me to "walk-the-walk" more than I ever have and that left me too tired to "talk-the-talk". So, I thought I might be hanging up this portion of my work.

Then, last week my TEN YEAR OLD daughter told me that one of her friends was on a diet to fit into a flower girl dress. I also read about a gazillion posts about "summer bodies" and "getting beach body ready" - just on my newsfeed and I've cleaned up my Social Media quite a bit to NOT be served this diet and exercise industry propoganda. It made me wonder what the the newfeeds of people who still believe or at least torture themselves with this commercial manipulation must look like. Gasoline was poured on the smoldering fire.

On June 17; I will proudly be hosting another Body Image Workshop. Some of it will be review from my last series. Some of it will be new. All of it will be thought-provoking, heart-opening, self-love-igniting deliciousness!

In this afternoon Workshop I will share with you the Yoga tools I have used to achieve this Body Acceptance.. The name of this Workshop is obviously inspired by my business name but as far as my life goes that's all I need.

LOVE: Learn how self-love and forgiveness/acceptance can help you overcome the negative thought patterns that hold you back and keep you coming back to blaming your Body for what is wrong in your life.

YOGA: Learn how Yoga teaches you so much about your body and emotions and how it's all connected. Learn to appreciate that our Bodies are simply a vessel for our souls and we must make our Health (not our body size) paramount!

GRACE: Learn how Grace opens us to vulnerability; the only path to true healing and authentic living. Overcome comparison, perfection myths and all of the trappings that come with our Culture.

Workshop Includes:

60 Minute Hatha Yoga Session/Snacks/Refreshments AND Special Guests!
