#Repost @karenbarkeryoga ・・・ I am #bodypositive - The meaning of this phrase has evolved for me over the years: . Initially, Body Positivity meant coming to a place of acceptance and peace with my own body. I was around 9 years old when i started to hate my developing curves and folds. In the years that followed, my size, migraine pain, arthritis, endometriosis, and disconnection from my body due to trauma prevented me from seeing my body as a comfortable home. The only time i was not at war with my body was during pregnancy; but each time, immediately afterwards, i was back to a dysfunctional and unhealthy relationship with myself. . My yoga practice has been instrumental in changing this relationship. The pains (physical and emotional) have not left - and actually new ones have arisen - but even though i don't usually love my body, i am able to view all of myself from a place of care and compassion rather than contempt. . This self-compassion and personal body positivity has inspired a deep compassion for other bodies, too. For me, Body Positivity has moved beyond personal, internal work and into actions seeking justice and peace for all bodies - particularly for people in marginalized bodies. . As @sonyareneetaylor writes in @thebodyisnotanapology - How we value our own bodies impacts how we value and honor the bodies of others. . . It is through our own transformed relationship with our bodies that we become champions for other bodies on our planet. .

What if instead of striving to banish our crazy, we embrace the lessons and gifts of our experiences? 💫 #yogaforeatingdisorders #yoga4eatingdisorders #yogaforeatingdisorderrecovery #yoga4eatingdisorderrecovery #EDrecovery #recovery #recoveryispossible #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery #BEDRecovery #ednosrecovery #yoga #yogatherapy #yogapractice #bodymindfulyoga #mentalhealth #EDspeaker
