Yoga in the Prevention and Treatment
of Eating Disorders

part of the
Yoga for Positive Change
conference for yoga teachers
August 24-27

Millions suffer with eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating. Many more endure yo-yo dieting and obsession with weight and shape.

Eating disorders showcase the tyranny of mind over body and spirit. Yoga can boost prevention and treatment by strengthening spirit and restoring body-mind integration. It can fulfill functions that eating disorders vainly attempt to accomplish, making the disorder less of a necessity.

Develop skills for sharing yoga with those afflicted with or at risk for disordered eating. Learn to apply yoga and your teaching to prevention and treatment programs in a variety of community and institutional settings.

Lisa Sarasohn, Kripalu Yoga teacher since 1979, brings the good news that the belly is sacred, not shameful, to women worldwide. She's author of The Woman's Belly Book (New World Library, 2006).

Deborah Klinger is a psychotherapist, a certified Eating Disorders Specialist, and a Phoenix Rising yoga therapist. She's a frequent presenter at conferences sponsored by the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals.
