“With the recent increase in the conversation on inclusivity and what it means to be truly seen and heard as a result of Yoga Journal's recent cover debacle, I've been quietly working behind the scenes with Kino MacGregor and her team since last year to craft a blog series that addresses yoga, body image, body positivity, diversity, the difference between health and aesthetics, body shaming and what it means to be an ally. You see, Kino has acknowledged her share of mistakes and missteps... and she reached out directly to the folks who have been leading the charge for years. And I appreciate her humility and genuine desire to learn and use her platform to share this information directly from the on-the-ground movement who has forged the way for these conversations to grow. After many honest and vulnerable conversations as well as personal shares on both our ends over the last year, I was happy to assemble a team of Yoga and Body Image Coalition partners to create a series intended to educate, de-mystify, build community and promote compassionate listening and learning. This movement can not and will not be bought, sold, or co-opted. We've been here for years and will continue to grow this conversation from the ground up.” @melmelklein #repost LINK IN @melklein’s BIO https://omstars.com/blog/yoga-body-image/exploring-yoga-body-image-with-omstars-the-yoga-network/ #whatayogilookslike #everybodyisayogabody #representationmatters #yogaforall
We can strive to change our exteriors over and over again, but unless our insides are aligned with our higher selves, we will never know how to affirm our bodies. - Jennifer Kreatsoulas #BodyMindfulYoga

“It’s not inevitable. It’s not “natural.” It’s not inherently that girls and women are caught up in this body project. . It is something that is learned. And because of that, it can be relearned. . We can begin to restructure our relationships with our bodies. We can reimagine the culture. We can reframe our personal narrative.” - Melanie Klein #YogaLandPodcast PODCAST with Andrea Ferretti on the Yogaland Podcast: Episode 124: Melanie Klein — Reimagine Your Relationship With Your Body Tune in here: http://jasonyoga.com/podcast #yoga #bodyimage #yogabodyimage #ybic #yogapractice #mindfulness #yogarisingbook #whatayogilookslike #bodyconfidence #bodyacceptance
