My Body, My Home

September 14, 2019 1:30-4:30PM

Global Breath Studio

Durham NC

 

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.

Prepare for your retreat

You’ve been preparing for this retreat your whole life! Our Mind, Body, Spirit Retreats are designed to be a holistic reset button around specific themes such as body acceptance. It is our job as educators to meet you wherever you are on your journey. To get the most out of this experience, it can help to take a few periods of stillness in the days prior to the event to take stock of where you are and where you’d like to be. Notice how you talk to yourself about your body, notice behaviors that support you in body love and those that reinforce body negativity.

We are honored to be with you on this road of self-discovery.

WHO SHOULD COME?

Anyone who wants to feel better about their bodies. Our content is designed to address barriers to body love from a social justice perspective - you learned your body is not OK as a function of oppressive narratives about race, gender, and body size. Our goal is to help liberate you from those backwards stories.

No previous yoga experience is required.
