Join us at Northshire Bookstore (Saratoga Springs) for an evening with author, psychotherapist, clinical social worker, and yoga teacher Ann Saffi Biasetti, as she shares her book Befriending Your Body. She has developed a teacher-training program in mindfulness-based restorative yoga to promote embodiment and embodied awareness.
This book is a step-by-step holistic approach to recovering fully from disordered eating, using self-compassion and embodiment practices to reduce symptoms, increase body awareness and acceptance, reconnect to others, and step back into an integrated life.
Those who struggle with disordered eating often find themselves in an unrelenting cycle of harsh self-judgment, painful emotions, and harmful behaviors. Seeing the body as an adversary, these patterns can lead many people to become withdrawn or isolated. This powerful holistic approach to liberating people from disordered eating focuses on growing self-compassion and embodiment. This insight, informed by yoga and mindfulness meditation, views the body not just as something to be healed or restored but as a source of great wisdom and knowledge.
