The aim of the 6-week yoga group sessions is to give people a foundation around Yoga, the important philosophical elements that guide practice and how yoga can support recovery from Eating disorders.
We will start to connect with the body through gentle warmups, encouraging choice and exploration. Getting people to get a sense of the level of connection or disconnection they feel with their bodies and starting to explore that for themselves in a safe way.
Standing poses to encourage grounding (safety) but also perhaps encouraging strength. Recognising it can be difficult for people with Eating disorders to feel comfortable taking up space and tap into their power and feel the breath safely.
This is all facilitated through gentleness and at the person’s pace and comfort level.
