Yoga Born highly recommends you watch EMBRACE

Body image is a person’s perception of the aesthetics or sexual attractiveness of their own body. The phrase body image was first coined by the Austrian neurologist and psychoanalyst Paul Schilder in his book The Image and Appearance of the Human Body (1935).

Body image is the mental representation one creates, but it may or may not bear close relation to how others actually see you. Body image is subject to all kinds of distortion from internal elements like our emotions, moods, early experiences, attitudes of our parents, and much more.

A stress-relieving practice, can also be an effective way for people to develop a positive self-image. … A regular yoga practice can help heal body image issues and promote positive self-esteem. 

We need to stop loathing and shaming our bodies. Together we practice focusing on allowing better self-esteem. We can broaden our mental image of what a healthy body looks like. We slowly feel better in our bodies and boldly love the body we are born with.

For years, mainstream yoga publications, websites and clothing companies have carefully crafted a very specific image of what yoga looks like. Pictures of very thin, almost exclusively Caucasian women are being disproportionately featured in advertising and promotion for yoga. Very rarely do you see an “average” or “regular” sized person doing a simple yoga pose.

Society creates this impossible image so companies can make money off your insecurities about yourself and your body—insecurities that this type of marketing helped create in order to sell their products.

At Yoga Born you will fit right in!
