Yoga & Art Therapy in Eating Disorder Recovery

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 808

Usually by the time an individual faces admission to an inpatient eating disorder unit they have become disconnected from their body and are seeking control in physically dangerous ways. Despite their body feeling foreign, uncontrollable, and, in extreme cases, like a map of traumatic memories and fear, finding safety within that body is a vital step on the path of recovery. This experiential workshop will explore how introducing the chakras and koshas of yogic philosophy, through mindful stretching, guided relaxation, and art therapy, provided patients on an inpatient eating disorder unit the opportunity to create new maps of, and compassionate connections to, their physical bodies. This workshop will include a general overview of the chakras and koshas, how they were introduced to this population specifically, vignettes and art from the actual work, an experiential exploration of the techniques used, and a variety of tools helping professionals can safely share with their clients.
