YOGA, FOOD & BODY IMAGE INTENSIVE
This dynamic training will teach you an innovative yoga-based approach to mindful eating, emotional health, and body confidence. Food and body image challenges affect individuals from all walks of life. Whether it’s eating to avoid feelings, dieting to lose weight, or wearing makeup to look younger, nearly everyone deals with that “not enough” feeling at one time or another. Yoga and meditation provide a rich set of tools that support healthy eating, emotional resilience, and positive body image.
