Lila Yoga & Body Image Awareness 2-Hour Workshop
October 1, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Body Image: Body image is how you see yourself when you look in the mirror or when you picture yourself in your mind. It encompasses:
- What you believe about your own appearance (including your memories, assumptions, and generalizations).
- How you feel about your body, including your height, shape, and weight.
- How you sense and control your body as you move. How you feel in your body, not just about your body. (www.nationaleatingdisorders.org)Oftentimes our culture surrounding yoga can negatively influence our body image and can encourage self-critique. In this workshop we will explore the relationship between our yoga practice and our body image. We will discuss ways to become more aware of how our physical practice, relationship to our yoga community, and personal experience influences our body image, all the while exploring ways to nourish a healthy relationship between our yoga practice and our bodies!
