Self-compassion comes from the desire to alleviate our suffering. Sometimes this requires tender and soft acceptance of “being with” ourselves. Other times, self-compassion needs to be fierce, standing up for ourselves, or finding the courage to take a new path. Tender and Fierce Self-Compassion are a yin and yang; in delicate balance of each other. When used in support of recovery, Self-Compassion can be a powerful tool to help us activate our inner caregiver, self-kindness, self-worth, self-acceptance, inner strength to set boundaries, and to walk the path of recovery.
In this 90 minute masterclass with Angela Prior LCSW-S, E-RYT explore bhu mudra to ground and activate the root chakra for steadiness. Utilizing a meditation practice for being present and embodied.

This is an educational and experiential yoga + movement workshop and is not mental health therapy. This workshop is for educational purposes and serves as an adjunct service for any mental health work you may be doing. We will not be assessing, diagnosing, or treating.
If you identify as someone in recovery from disordered eating or an eating disorder and you are looking to build your knowledge and increase your embodied awareness through yoga and movement. You need to be medically stable and we require that you have a therapist and/or a registered dietitian you are working with.
Our yoga and meditations aim to be accessible meaning we teach by making yoga shapes accessible to your body utilizing supports.
This will be a mat yoga class specifically. Range of motion and ability that allows for getting down and up from the flow will be needed. A chair version of this program is in development.
We understand that treatment and care for an Eating Disorder is expensive. Which is why we have partnered with Project Heal as part of their Healer's Circle to provide 1 scholarship spot for somebody who is experiencing financial hardship and may qualify. Please reach out for more information email@example.com.
