My Body, My Home

Global Breath Studio
Your body is your sacred home, but when is the last time you felt anything but dissatisfaction when you looked in the mirror? We are trained to be obsessively disappointed in our bodies, constantly striving to be more fit, less fat, more attractive, less distracting, all of which contributes to a painful, adversarial relationship with our precious bodies.
In this retreat, we will help you dedicate yourself to a loving relationship with your body, starting wherever you are. Using integrated techniques from Intuitive Eating, Yoga, and meditation, we will explore the source of our body negativity, and teach tools for body acceptance that are manageable no matter how disconnected you feel from your body.
