Yoga and Body Image
Posted on August 12, 2015
Practicing yoga can have a strong impact on how you feel about your body - but whether that impact is positive or negative depends a great deal on you, and what you bring to the practice. If you struggle with negative body image or food issues, ask yourself whether your primary goal for your yoga posture practice is to get a ‘“yoga body.” See if your dedication is masking compulsive exercise, or if you’re using hard, fast and intense asanas to distract yourself from deep or uncomfortable feelings. Check in with your inner dialogue, too. Often, even when we can contort ourselves into the most advanced postures, our thoughts are still repeating, “body not good enough.” After all, how we show up on our mats is a reflection of how we show up in life.

As the Zen master Cheri Huber once said, "How you do anything is how you do everything!” Yoga can teach us many, many things about our relationship to life, and in particular, our relationship to food.

When we are feeling balanced and relaxed, that’s how we show up with food. When we practice yoga, we become more mindful, which makes a big difference at the dinner table. After all, we don’t do yoga to be better at yoga - we do yoga to show up better in life. So what can yoga teach you about your relationship with food? Let’s take a look at the foundational guidelines that underlie all of yoga, the Yamas and Niyamas.
