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.
