FR 19. - SO 21. Juni 2020 | Yoga & Essstörungen | Thrive: Live Better in Your Mind and Body with Chelsea Roff | Amazing Yoga Vienna

Die Engländerin Chelsea Roff ist Yogalehrerin und Gründerin von Eat Breathe Thrive, einer Organisation, deren Ziel die Prävention und Hilfe bei Essstörungen mit Hilfe von Yoga ist. In dem von ihr entwickelten Programm geht es um achtsames Essen, Stärkung der Widerstandskraft auf emotioneller Ebene und die Wiedererlangung des Vertrauens in den Körper.

Nachdem sie 2009 ihr Yoga Teacher Training abgeschlossen hatte, entwickelte sie ein "yoga-based intervention program" für Frauen mit Brustkrebs und 2011 bot sie zum ersten Mal das "Yoga for Eating Disorders program" für Klienten mit Anorexia an.  Dieses Programm wurde später das Herzstück von "Eat Breathe Thrive", einem 6-wöchigen Programm, das mit Yoga, Meditation und Psychoedukation (Aufklärung und Vermittlung von wissenschaftlichem Wissen) Menschen mit Essstörungen und Körperwahrnehmungsproblemen unterstützt.

Vom 19. bis 21. Juni 2020 findet das Modul 1, das auch als Teil des allgemeinen Eat-Breathe-Thrive Programms angerechnet wird, mit Chelesea Roff im Amazing Yoga Vienna statt.

• Practices from Thai yoga that can help us deepen our capacity for intimacy and more effectively communicate our boundaries

• A neuroscience-informed approach to manage depression and anxiety using the body’s natural excitatory and calming systems

About your teacher:

Chelsea Roff | Eat Breathe Thrive AVienna | yogaguidesea Roff is the Founder and Director of Eat Breathe Thrive. An author, researcher, and educator, she has spent nearly a decade pioneering integrative health programs for people with mental health challenges.

Roff began her career as a research assistant and grant writer in a psychoneuroimmunology laboratory. Her early research focused on how stress affects the immune system and how mind-body practices like yoga can help people with chronic diseases like cancer and HIV/AIDS. While in university, Roff secured grants from the National Science Foundation and Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation. She also became adept in technologies such as facial electromyography, galvanic skin conductance, and the electroencephelogram.

Roff went on to apply what she learned in the lab to develop innovative solutions to real-world problems. After completing a yoga teacher training in 2009, she developed a yoga-based intervention for women with breast cancer. She went on to develop a similar program for youth who had experienced sexual assault at a juvenile detention center, and adults facing homelessness at a residential shelter.

Over and over again, Roff found herself drawn back to one population: men and women experiencing eating disorders. Roff herself had struggled with anorexia in her youth, and recovered thanks to the support of community, practice of yoga and opportunity to serve others. In 2011, Roff offered the first Yoga for Eating Disorders program to clients at a treatment center where she had once been treated for anorexia. This program later became the heart of Eat Breathe Thrive: a six-week intervention that combines yoga, meditation, and psychoeducation to help people fully overcome food and body image issues. She currently lives in Venice, California. http://chelsearoff.com | www.eatbreathethrive.org
