Date(s) - 05/22/2021
10:00 am - 3:00 pm

We go about our days within a Body Hierarchy, with or without our awareness. This system is upheld by Diet Culture and is rooted in racism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, and patriarchy.  

The limiting beliefs born of this Body Hierarchy fractures us. We live with an “ownership” mentality of our bodies.  We feel like our bodies are a problem to be fixed, to be contained and controlled, frozen, showing no change over time.  We believe that we are “less than”, “not enough”, and deficient. 

As we wake up to this “story”, we become aware that this illusion leaves us in perpetual discontent with the bodies we live in.   Then what?

This workshop is dedicated to: 

1-Healing the fracture,  disconnection, and discontent created by diet culture 

2-Cultivating a partnership with your body based on respect and trust

Through Gentle, Accessible Yoga, discussion, journaling, guided meditations and an Embodied/Mindful Meal, you will:

  • Shift away from objectifying your body
  • Connect and attune with your body
  • Apply Embodied/Intuitive Eating Principles 
  • Relate to your Body as Partner
  • Cultivate Self-Compassion as a Skill and Practice 
  • Experience Embodied/Mindful Eating

This workshop is inspired and informed by Sonja Renee Taylor’s The Body Is Not An Apology.

You will have the option of joining us in person at 18 Springs Community Healing Center or virtually via Zoom. (If in person-Spaces will be limited for social distancing.  Masks will be required)

  1. I would like to purchase a ticket for myself and a friend. Should I do the “pay for yourself and support another” or do we need to do two separate orders?

    • Hello Liz, thank you for your interest in my workshop! Yes, you will need to purchase 2 separate registrations for 2 people to attend. The “pay for your self and support another” option is for those who would like to provide support for participants who may not be able to purchase at the standard price at this time. Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions. I look forward to meeting you and your friend.
