When I came to power yoga practice at the very end of my 10 years of battling with an eating disorder, it helped me create a sense of self that was never there before," says Chelsea. "I started to feel my body, and I started to understand that I could use my body. My yoga practice created a sense of wholeness and connection, through breath, through the movement, and ultimately helped my see my body in a different way. Like the weight, shifting my weight, even the word 'weight' resonated differently in my mind after that.
Mirasol's free weekly eating disorder and body image support group is temporarily on hold to protect the safety of our clients, staff and the community from the potential spread of coronavirus. As soon as feasible, the support group will resume in an online format lead by Mirasol CEO and founder Jeanne Rust. Stay tuned for further details! .
