Body Acceptance Yoga Series
NEW PROGRAMS STARTING SOON!
Please get in touch if you would like to hear about upcoming programs around the world and online.
This 6 week Body Acceptance Yoga program is for women* living with an eating disorder or body dysmorphia.
If you have felt a disconnection from your body or a sense of emptiness or hopelessness in your relationship with your body, you are not alone.
This program is an opportunity for you to:
connect with the sensations in your body
increase feelings of empowerment
rebuild and strengthen your relationship to yourself and others
remain in the present moment
About the sessions
During these classes we will practice Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY). TCTSY is based on hatha yoga, where we use
physical forms and movements without the need to "get it
right". Instead, elements of traditional hatha yoga are
modified to build experiences of empowerment and cultivate a more positive relationship to one’s body.
These classes explore:
Having a body
Befriending your body
Using your body as a resource
This program welcomes you to experience movement,
making choices about how you would like to interact with
yoga forms and noticing sensations in your body. From this
place, you may begin to experience greater self-acceptance and connection with your body.
What to expect in the sessions
There are no hands-on assists in these classes. You are in charge of your own body.
You have choices about how you want to interact with your body and the yoga forms during these classes.
Your facilitator, Jemma Moody, will be practicing with you. She will remain on her mat during the whole class and will often practice with her eyes closed.
This will be a closed group for up to 4 participants, , open to anyone identifying as a woman. New students will be accepted in the first 2-3 weeks and then the group will stay the same.
No yoga experience is necessary.
