NEDA Staff

The Yoga and Body Image Coalition is a 2019 Featured NEDAwareness Week Partner. YBIC’s mission is to work with all of the ways yoga and body image intersect to create greater access and dignity for all. As part of NEDAwareness Week, YBIC invited its community members to “share their stories about how the practice of yoga has played an integral role in their healing and recovery from eating disorders” for its blog. Check out these articles they are highlighting:

Shattering Stereotypes: Brown People Get Eating Disorders Too by Shalini Wickramatilake




Embodied Healing by Kate Trevorrow




Identifying In: We’re All Worthy of Liberation from Disordered Eating by Melanie Williams




NEDA applauds YBIC’s commitment to developing, promotion, and supporting yoga that is accessible, body-positive, and reflects the full range of human diversity. More of YBIC’s NEDAwareness Week resources can be found here.
