Event description

Description

Body love may seem like an unattainable concept. The Body Kindness Project is all about starting small. From kindness, comes acceptance.

Join us for a retreat at the serene, scenic, and peaceful Himalayan Institute in the Poconos and begin your own personal body kindness project! With 400 acres of rolling hills and magnificent sunrises and sunsets as our backdrop, this special weekend will include:

  • 5 sessions devoted to exploring body kindness and what that means to you
  • Yoga and meditation
  • Meaningful and supportive discussion
  • Journaling, art, and other creative activities
  • Hiking
  • Rest and relaxation
  • Additional amenities offered at the Himalayan Institute

**Plus, a few new events: A private guided hike for our group, a Fire Pit Pondside party, and a Chai Tea welcome party. And we just may have a few more tricks up our sleeves for the weekend!

This retreat is appropriate for women who want to explore how to be kind to their bodies. Whether you struggle with body image because of your past, weight, race, size, ability, aging, illness, or more, we invite you to join us. No yoga experience is necessary.

Themes we will explore include but are not limited to:

  • How do I relate to my body?
  • How do I talk to my body?
  • How did my body image develop?
  • How do my emotions affect my body image?
  • How does my body language and body image affect my emotions?
  • How can we use tools from yoga therapy to help us be kind our bodies?
  • What’s the difference between tolerance, acceptance, respect, love, and kindness?
  • How do we move forward with kindness?


Here's what people are saying about The Body Kindness Project retreats...

"I highly recommend The Body Kindness Project retreats to anyone who struggles with self-doubt and body image-related issues. Kanjana and Jennifer provide a safe place to explore who you are and where you want to be." ~Catherine Rose Loveless

"Through introspective art and journaling activities, yoga therapy, breath work, and the love and support of our group, I went back home to Florida with a renewed sense of self-love, a new understanding of how it feels to be truly connected to my body, and a goal of reprioritizing my recovery and my health, because that is the ultimate path to body kindness." ~Alicia Damiano

"The Body Kindness Project gave me the opportunity to slow down and reconnect with my body. A month later I continue to meditate every day and I have the energy to take on my day. As mental health professional, that value is unspeakable. Thank you!" ~Audrey Grunst
