I don’t know how this is possible, but I have been binge-free since leaving Kripalu. There have been a few times when I ate one more chocolate than I wanted to, but I did not give myself a guilt trip or shame myself. Thank you so much for your teachings and your heart!

For all women; no previous yoga experience necessary.
Is your weight, eating pattern, or life feeling out of control? Do you struggle with an eating disorder or compulsive eating and exercising? Find relief, understanding, and long-term strategies for change in this workshop with Sarahjoy Marsh.
Compulsive eating, exercising, dieting, and binge-and-purge cycles are often a result of “hungers of the heart”—hunger for connection, creativity, aliveness, ease, and refuge. When these cravings are confused with physical hunger, you lose the ability to rest in the innate wisdom and love at the center of a sacred and balanced life. In a small-group setting, explore these compulsive behaviors in the spirit of sisterhood, kindness, and transparency. Learn how to recognize, self-soothe, and satisfy these hungers without turning to food as your default. This program includes
- A safe journey into the cycle of addiction and the nature of shame
- Strategies for self-nurturance and sustaining recovery in turbulent times
- Development of mindfulness and communication skills
- Supportive yoga, meditation, and pranayama.
Come develop strategies to live in emotional and physical balance.
