Making Peace with Your Body
Jan 26, 2019 - Jan 27, 2019
 
Making Peace with Your Body: a workshop intensive with Amber Karnes, founder of Body Positive Yoga


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. Not to mention all the new year, new you rhetoric that's soaked in shame and self-blame. Let's do it differently this January: Rather than resolving yourself to conform to the standards set by systems of oppression, why not revolt against them and do something revolutionary: make peace with your body.

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. Please bring a pen and favorite journal if you have one.

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 amber.karnes@gmail.com.

9 contact hour CEUs are available through Yoga Alliance.
