    Prana: Body Positivity in Clinical Practice

  • When
    1 December 17:30 - 19:30
  • EUMEHS has partnered up with Lululemon, Edinburgh Community Outreach Yoga, Move Your Potential and the Chachi Power Project to bring you our first interactive workshop! With Winter fast approaching thoughts turn to exams and holiday festivities and we can often neglect our physical, mental and emotional health. We hope to host an evening that allows you to de-stress and reconnect with your bodies through yoga, food, and chat!

    The body positivity movement has gained unprecedented momentum in recent years. Its purpose is to re-evaluate how we relate to our physical forms. With the obesity epidemic, increasing prevalence of eating disorders, and the undeniable effects of social media on our perceptions of our bodies, we hope to discuss the intrinsic links between medicine and the body positivity movement.

    We have some fabulous women sharing their expert opinions on body positivity, eating disorders, mindful eating, self-care, and mental health. We'll be releasing biographies of each of our partners and speakers each week so please subscribe to the page for updates!

    The programme for this exciting evening is:
    5.30 - Welcome
    5.40 - 6.40 - Yoga practice with Sarah McCaffer (mats provided)
    6.45 - 8.10 - Structured discussion with Danni from Chachi Power Project and Caroline Toshack from Move Your Potential
    8.10 - 8.30 - Exam de-stress workshop with Lorraine Close

    We will be providing some yummy, healthy, handmade food after the yoga to fuel the discussion. Please wear comfortable clothing suitable to exercise in. EVERYONE is welcome to this event; any shape, size, gender, background or belief system. We all have something to contribute. Please message the page if you have any questions, concerns or special requirements.

    Tickets are £10 with ALL the proceeds going to Edinburgh Community Outreach Yoga http://edinburghcommunityyoga.co.uk/not-for-profit/ecyo/

    See you on the mat,
