#edyogawarriors Challenge: Spreading Awareness and Hope | Instagram | 2/26/18 – 3/4/18February 20, 2018
Join the Yoga and Body Image Coalition and Asteya Fitness as we spread awareness and hope during this year’s National Eating Disorder Awareness (NEDA) Week by smashing yoga body stereotypes and celebrating the power of yoga in eating disorder recovery.
Living and feeling into the body can be extremely difficult if not impossible for those suffering from an eating disorder. In eating disorder recovery, many struggle to reconnect and heal the subtle yet vital lines of communication between the mind and the body. Yoga is one of the most powerful and effective ways to reconnect to the body while also teaching self-acceptance and mindfulness. Each day throughout NEDA week we will share our favorite yoga poses (asana) along with a healing mantra. We invite you to post and share your version of the day’s asana along with how this particular pose has personally helped you move toward self-acceptance and healing your relationship with your body. Variations of the asana are highly encouraged.
The #edyogawarriors Challenge runs all of Eating Disorders Awareness Week
