Eat what you like. Move how you want.
FREE 5-day series: 5 Big Truths that will Change Everything
I spent a lot of years obsessing about my weight and about food. Like A LOT of years; over half my life. I don’t do any of that anymore, and I have more time, more energy, and more LOVE in my life.
When we stop obsessing about weight and food, it doesn’t mean we throw health and nutrition out the window. It just means measuring health in more authentic ways, and shifting away from an attitude of “nutritionism” (an ideology that judges food solely on its nutrients). For me, it meant shifting my search for guidance from outside myself to inside myself, and it meant getting really, really honest.
So, yeah, it’s about accepting your body, but it’s so much more than that. When we understand and appreciate ourselves, EVERYTHING changes.
The more I learn about the inner workings of the human body, the closer I feel to God. Our amazing bodies are sacred intersections between the physical world and the spiritual world. I believe we should treat ourselves, and each other, as such.
The shape and size of your body aren’t, as diet culture teaches us, the measure of your value or quality of life. But neither is your body secondary to your spirit. Your body and spirit aren’t separate or hierarchical, rather, your body is how your spirit flows and moves in the world. It’s also your navigation system and your divine messenger.
Your body IS divine wisdom, and when you hear and trust your body’s guidance, you always end up in the right place.
From our first appearance as a single cell, through the development of our tiny bodies in the womb, and through our lifetimes, the wisdom of our bodies is ever present. The practices of yoga can help you connect to your body’s innate wisdom throughout all five koshas or layers of being.
I believe you can peel away the layers of you that are not really you, but thoughts and beliefs you’ve picked up along the way that tell you that you’re not enough.
I believe you can quit dieting and get WAY more out of life. I teach that when we can accept and understand ourselves, EVERYTHING changes. Through the tools and teaching of yoga, I support women as they explore their relationships with food and their bodies and discover how old beliefs are holding them back from their true hopes and dreams.
I love my work as a Yoga Therapist and am continually inspired by my clients and their courage to explore and question their deepest thoughts and oldest beliefs.
