Finding Myself Within the Body Love Spectrum Workshop

  • Yoga NW 1901 Northwest 26th Avenue Portland, OR, 97210 United States (map)

About the Workshop

We all come into this world perfectly whole and aware of the preciousness of who we are simply by being. As we grow up our bodies and experiences are shaped by our environment. Living in a fat-phobic, externally validating society does a number on how we see ourselves and how we move through the world. We start to question our worth, our ideas, and our bodies, all the while being told that we should “love ourselves” (Talk about a catch 22). 

We would like to invite you to a new kind of workshop, a workshop where you are the teacher and the guide for yourself. We will gather together, share our experiences, and heal.

We will dance based on feeling rather than doing it right… because what is right dancing anyway? We will practice yoga, and workshop transitions and poses that empower us to be the bad ass queens that we are. We will be creative and dabble in some art while eating chocolate! But most importantly, we will be kind to ourselves, we will take a break from the inner critic’s hamster wheel and sit in a circle of humans who want to gather to be seen and to see YOU! Body Love is a spectrum, wherever you are on the spectrum between body hate and body love is allowed and welcome, loving ourselves is an active practice.

Come practice with us, come share who you are, and come move in a way that feels just right to you. <3
