Friday, 6pm-8pm: Yoga, A Game-Changer in Eating Disorders

Opening circle and group discussion about the role yoga can play in healing food and body image issues at all ends of the spectrum

Saturday, 12pm-1:30pm, 2:30pm-6pm: Coming Home to the Body

Learn how to use yoga to develop a healthier relationship with your body through yogic techniques for tracking hunger and fullness signals, coping with emotions, and cultivating a sense of "home" in your own skin. Includes asana session, group discussion, interactive exercises, and meditation

Sunday, 12pm-1:30pm, 2:30pm-6pm: The Double Edged Sword

Despite the tremendous value yoga can offer in the recovery process, yoga can be a double-edged sword for people with eating disorders. On one hand, the practice can teach essential skills for long-term recovery, but the wrong approach to yoga can actually exacerbate food and body image issues. Learn how to use the practice of yoga for health and wellbeing, rather than as a crutch for acting out in their eating disorder. Includes asana session, group discussion, interactive exercises, and meditation

Chelsea Roff Bio:
Chelsea Roff is a nationally-recognized author and speaker, and the Founder of Yoga for Eating Disorders. In September 2013, Chelsea raised $50,000 in partnership with The Give Back Yoga Foundation to kickstart her non-profit program, Yoga for Eating Disorders. The program is currently being offered in treatment centers around the country at no charge, and she is working with researchers at UCLA to evaluate the program’s effectiveness in treatment. 
Chelsea is known for her intelligent, inspiring, and tell-it-like-it-is teaching style, and for weaving together profound personal experiences with her scientific background to deliver deeply moving insights. After nearly losing her life to anorexia and a subsequent stroke when she was 15, she has became a national advocate for community-based mental health interventions. Her work was recently showcased by Sanjay Gupta on CNN, and she’s been keynote speaker at 92nd Street Y, The Omega Institute, and at various universities and conferences around the country.
Chelsea currently lives in Venice, California, where she can be found cartwheeling across the beach, hiking in the mountains, and practicing yoga poses on her little pink scooter.
