“Don’t say anything to yourself that you wouldn’t say to your best friend.”
– Elisabeth Tavierne
As we discussed in a recent blog post, body positivity is a major issue in the United States. An alarming 30 million individuals are suffering from significant eating disorders right now, and so many more cases go undiagnosed.
We know that yoga has been proven to have a positive effect on those struggling with eating disorders, which is why one of our programs focuses exclusively on body positivity. If you’re interested in trying body positive yoga, we welcome you to join us at Pandora Healing Center in Hawthorne, NJ, every Friday morning at 9:30am EST.
In truth, all of us could use a healthy dose of body positivity every once in awhile. So this month, we’re challenging our community to show love for the parts of us that really matter – our inner qualities that make us all unique. Here’s how it works:
1. From now until the end of the month, post photos of those you love with the following caption: "I love (insert name) because he/she is (insert quality)." Don’t forget: The qualities should be about your loved ones’ personalities and unique qualities – not about physical appearance. :)
2. At the end of your caption, include the hashtag #Kula4Love, and tag @kulaforkarma, @defiantyoga, and the person your post is about.
3. Share as many photos as you’d like – the more times you enter, the more likely you are to win!
We are so grateful for our community of beautiful, strong individuals, and we’re inspired by you every day. Reach out to us any time via email, or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. We love to connect with you!
