March 22nd topic: the oppression of body size: shedding light on thin privilege and weight stigma
hey, you there! Yes, you with a body! This workshop is for you. It is hard to have a body and exist peacefully in today’s weight-and-health-obsessed culture. It may even feel uncomfortable coming to a yoga class and taking up space… being seen. Let’s gather as a community to support each other in showing up in life unapologetically, with inner strength and confidence.
Prepare yourself for a perspective shift: we’ll begin with a conversation to become wise to the harms and oppression of diet culture. Breath practices, mindfulness, writing prompts, and accessible movement will follow to bring out your inner fierce.
This is an inclusive space for women and female-identified humans in all bodies.
