Exploring the Role of Yoga & Yoga Therapy in Eating Disorder Recovery

Exploring the Role of Yoga & Yoga Therapy in Eating Disorder Recovery

6 Hours | 3 Sessions

With Jennifer Kreatsoulas PhD, C-IAYT

Given that 70 million people in the world suffer from an eating disorder, it’s highly likely that if you’re a yoga teacher, you’ll come across students that are affected. And because physical side effects—some of which are very dangerous—are associated with eating disorders, it’s important for yoga professionals to have a basic understanding of this illness.

Even in yoga settings where asana is not the primary focus, a general knowledge of eating disorders may be helpful, as the quiet practice of meditation, for example, may present unique challenges initially for those affected by eating disorders. If you would like to learn how to make your yoga classes or client sessions eating disorder-informed, we invite you to join Jennifer Kreatsoulas, PhD, C-IAYT for a mini workshop on the role of yoga in eating disorder recovery.
