A yoga approach to dealing with disorded eating patterns--like overeating, food addiction, and stress eating--and the resulting emotional distress they can cause. Yoga philosophy and practice are increasingly being used therapeutically to help people overcome disorded eating patterns--like overeating, food addiction, and stress eating--and the resulting emotional distress they can cause. Sarahjoy Marsh offers a program using yoga to address food-centered behaviors and body image issues. She illuminates the nature of addiction and offers a methodical approach to recovery that is neither dogmatic nor rigid; rather, it is compassionate, hopeful, and deliberate. Full of clear, empathic advice and photographs of the step-by-step practices, this book will help alleviate the isolation that people with food-oriented issues and body image problems feel; offer strategies for changing the behaviors; and give clear guidelines about the processes of recovery and the development of new life skills.
