Making Peace with Your Body with Amber Karnes of Body Positive Yoga, January 25-26th, 2019
With thousands of images of “perfection” shot at us every day, it can be easy to compare ourselves with others and internalize the constant judgment and scrutiny of our bodies.
This workshop intensive explores body acceptance through the lens of the yoga teachings. We will discover how the 8 limbs of yoga, the practice of non-attachment, a feminist lens, and techniques from cognitive psychology can help you get from self-loathing to radical self-acceptance.
This workshop combines movement (yoga asana), breathing and meditation, reflection and self-study, and an engaging lecture for an interactive time of self-discovery and transformation. We’ll discover ways to boost confidence, get in touch with our inner badass, and foster a healthy self image.
A limited number of partial scholarships are available to community members facing financial limitations. Folks with marginalized identities (BIPOC, LGBTQ+, folks with disabilities, etc.) will be given priority consideration. To apply for a scholarship, email email@example.com.
