Join us for Complimentary Restorative Yoga in Honor of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week
Friday, February 28th from 6:00PM-7:15PM at Nourish Your Mind – Middletown, NY

In support of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week which runs February 24 – March 1, we will be offering a complimentary restorative yoga class based on NEDA weeks theme, Come As You Are: Hindsight is 20/20. This offering is for anyone that has been touched by an eating disorder, including caregivers and family members.

The class will emphasize that regardless of your body shape, weight, race, gender identity, ability, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or your stage of body acceptance and eating disorder recovery, your story is valid and deserves to be heard. We will come together to honor your healing path of recovery and the struggles and successes that led to where you are today, through relaxation, meditation and compassion.

No yoga experience needed. Mats and props will be provided. An open heart and mind encouraged.
*The goal of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (#NEDAwareness) is to shine the spotlight on eating disorders by educating the public, spreading a message of hope, and putting lifesaving resources into the hands of those in need. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness and will affect 30 million Americans at some point in their lives, but myths and misinformation still keep people from getting the help they need. During NEDAwareness Week, communities across the country join the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) to raise awareness through social media campaigns, legislative advocacy, building lightings, local events, and many more activities.
