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.
