Fall Yoga Groups

Intakes will be held with month at The Emily Program’s St. Paul and St. Louis Park offices for five new Yoga & Body Image groups that will be held this fall.

In many instances eating disorders and body image issues are intimately linked. For many people who have an eating disorder, anxiety, worry, and pre-occupation with body image are also a part of their struggle. Recognizing this link and working on one’s body image can play a critical role in recovery from an eating disorder.

As a part of a holistic approach to treatment, yoga is a simple and direct way to re-frame body image worry and obsession and focus on the positive things our bodies do, whether they are everyday activities or joyful, healing ways of movement.

At The Emily Program, Yoga & Body Image groups help clients focus on how their bodies feel and move versus how they look. Yoga instructors adapt exercises to any body shape and any experience level. They also provide process time as a part of each group session.

The Emily Program will have five new Yoga & Body Image groups for the Fall Quarter. Meeting times are listed below. Previous experience is not necessary to participate in one of these weekly groups.

Intakes will begin the week of August 13, contact your individual therapist for more information or to register.
