I genuinely believe that the HAES approach and my yoga classes go hand in hand. Yoga is another practice that for years has been associated with skinny, privileged folks. I want to end that and I will have no part of exclusionary practices. EVERY body can do yoga. I cater my classes to EVERY body. Not just small bodies or ultra flexible bodies. EVERY body. My practice is 100% aligned with the HAES principles.

My one on one coaching sessions to address disordered eating and diet culture are also deeply rooted in HAES®.

The Health At Every Size® Principles are:

1. Weight Inclusivity: Accept and respect the inherent diversity of body shapes and sizes and reject the idealizing or pathologizing of specific weights.

2. Health Enhancement: Support health policies that improve and equalize access to information and services, and personal practices that improve human well-being, including attention to individual physical, economic, social, spiritual, emotional, and other needs.

3. Respectful Care: Acknowledge our biases, and work to end weight discrimination, weight stigma, and weight bias. Provide information and services from an understanding that socio-economic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other identities impact weight stigma, and support environments that address these inequities.

4. Eating for Well-being: Promote flexible, individualized eating based on hunger, satiety, nutritional needs, and pleasure, rather than any externally regulated eating plan focused on weight control.

5. Life-Enhancing Movement: Support physical activities that allow people of all sizes, abilities, and interests to engage in enjoyable movement, to the degree that they choose.
