The ancient holistic teachings of yoga combined with modern and relevant curriculum developed by clinical psychologist and yoga teacher, Dr. Melody Moore, the Embody Love Movement, offers powerful workshops for girls and women worldwide.  www.embodylovemovement.org

In September, Jennifer Helm-Givens will be the co-facilitator, and Beth Rusk will co-facilitate in October. Anyone 19+ who identifies as female is welcome to attend. The workshop takes participants on a journey toward self-acceptance. The goal is for women to set new intentions about how they feel, think, and speak to themselves and others. Participants are offered the opportunity to engage in process exercises in which they explore their internalized beliefs about beauty and self-worth and are given the tools to understand that these negative beliefs have a detrimental impact on their viewing themselves as purposeful and worthy.

Interactive exercises include:

  • Dismantling the “beauty myth”
  • Changing the conversation from criticism to kindness
  • Embodied yoga experience
  • Commiting to being kind to ourselves, and therefore each other
  • Seeing and experiencing ourselves as worthy from the inside out
  • Recognizing our contributions through conscious activism

A donation will be made to www.embodylovemovement.org for each registration.  Nobody is turned away for lack of funds. If you are a returning participant you can come for half off; if you return and bring a friend you come for free.

Minta Allred’s teachings include anatomical understanding of the body, as well as inspirational readings or yogic lifestyle concepts that bridge the practice on the mat with everyday life. She is passionate about her work with the Embody Love Movement, which guides girls and women on a transformational journey towards self-acceptance.
