Description of Presentation:
While modalities such as meditation and breathing techniques may be familiar to many practitioners, Yoga offers a wide variety of additional therapeutic approaches. This presentation is designed to introduce the full spectrum of Yoga and Meditation Philosophies for beneficial use in Eating Disorder Recovery and other mental health environments.
