Local Spotlight: Yoga for Eating Disorders

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

Goal
My goal is to raise $50,000 to conduct an evidence-based study on whether yoga is effective in treating eating disorders.
 
Project Overview
Chances are you know someone with an eating disorder; maybe it’s a friend, maybe a daughter, maybe an student. An estimated 24 million Americans suffer from eating disorders, and only one in ten ever receive treatment. This disease kills nearly half a million people every year – anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. I have experienced first-hand how yoga can be a game changer in eating disorder treatment. At 15 years old, I nearly died from a stroke resulting from severe anorexia. I was 58 pounds, severely depressed, and completely disconnected with my body. When I discovered yoga while in treatment, everything changed. I went from surviving to thriving; from living half a life to experiencing joy and freedom like I never imagined possible. In the six years since, I found myself wanting to share this freedom and help others find their way out of the illness. I developed a program called Yoga for Eating Disorders™ that teaches practical tools for intuitive eating, self-compassion, and coping with difficult emotions. I hope it will help others in the way my doctors, therapists and yoga community helped me in my time of need. I am partnering with the Give Back Yoga Foundation to raise $50,000 to teach the program at centers around the country at no charge and conduct an evidence-based study on its effectiveness in treating eating disorders.
