Movement Education for Students and Helpers
As a way to help integrate mind and body while meeting people in a safe place, it can be helpful to explore different body-based techniques from somatic psychology interventions to developmental movement as introduced through yoga shapes. For over 10 years, I've helped people slowly and gently reconnect with their body in a sustainable way - from private training to yoga groups for eating disorders and addictions. During this time, while studying with researchers and teachers, I discovered my love for teaching somatic education specifically shining light on the intersection of stages-of-change, attachment-based theories, and somatic techniques for the eating disorders population.

March 2019 Workshop
Mindful Movement for the Treatment of Eating Disorders: attachment-based techniques and experiential movement as an integrative approach
Attention yoga teachers, bodyworkers, dietitians, mental health professionals!
Are you a #yoga teacher, therapist, or allied healthcare practitioner with an interest in using yoga and mindful movement for eating disorders? Are you wondering how to help clients or students to reconnect with the mind and body in an attuned, sensitive way?
Our time together will include:
a discussion of attachment theory and its influence on psychological and physiological therapeutic parallels that when imbalanced often show up in unhealthy behaviors or patterns often seen in eating disorders.
we’ll practice several ways to notice and experiment our own patterns and needs through yoga postures and developmental movement as a way to offer these tools first to ourselves, then to our clients on the mat or on the couch.
this also offers a brief reminder of nervous system science and how it applies to the therapeutic relationship, a person’s stage of change or readiness, and as a reminder for using a trauma sensitive approach for the ED population.
This workshop is aimed at yoga teachers, mental health clinicians and other practitioners who have an interest in treating disordered eating with sensitivity while carefully inviting the body into treatment.

o creative movement meditations using metaphor to tap into your Wise Mind and internal witness
