Do No Harm Yoga Understand Food Body Issues in The Yoga Community - Opal Food Body Wisdom

This workshop is facilitated by a team of experts in the eating disorder treatment field who are also trained yoga instructors. Participants will have the opportunity to build awareness around disordered relationships to food and body and discuss how these may show up in the yoga environment. The group will start out with a short lecture portion and then allow time for open discussion. This is an ongoing series covering new topics in each session while allowing for continuing conversation and connection.

Topic: Health at Every Size

What is HAES?

What does it mean to teach yoga from a HAES perspective

What are some considerations to making yoga spaces and classes more HAES aligned?

Ongoing topics from previous sessions that we hope to discuss include:

How the dominant cultural narrative contributes to body exclusivity in yoga spaces

Creating context around eating disorders and the spectrum of food and body issues in our culture.

How to create a studio/class culture that is safe, welcoming, body inclusive, and eating disorder informed.

Understanding appropriate boundaries and the scope of the yoga instructor role when it comes to providing support to students that are actively struggling with food and body concerns.

Beginning a conversation about how the dominant cultural paradigm impacts our relationship to self and discuss ways to embody a new, respectful path through radical self-care.
