Yoga for Body Liberation: Cultivating Community for Body Positivity and Liberation
Do you want to explore your relationship with your body in a safe environment?
Do you want to build community around body positivity, size diversity, and fat acceptance?

You can share as much or as little of your process as you wish with the class. This is a safe space for all bodies, genders, and experiences.

I'd love to have you join me!
