Body Mindful Yoga Teacher Training

  • East Meets West Yoga Center 8230 Old Courthouse Road, Suite 400 Vienna, VA (map)

Yoga professionals have the privilege of guiding students through movement experiences and the responsibility of creating safe spaces for this body exploration to unfold. In an age of unreasonable beauty ideals, selfies, “before and after” photos, fad diets, “Thinspiration,” and a high prevalence of eating disorders, it’s essential we are sensitive to the possibility that our students and clients have body image concerns in their lives, potentially making movement an uneasy experience.

By learning how to teach “body mindfully,” or integrate body affirming language into your cueing, themes, and messaging, you will help every individual leave Yoga classes and private sessions feeling safe, supported, and uplifted throughout their personal journeys. In this training, led by Jennifer Kreatsoulas, PhD, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, author of Body Mindful Yoga, you will

  • Receive education on body image, eating disorders, and other common related challenges

  • Experience a Body Mindful Yoga practice led by Jennifer
