People who struggle with disordered eating find themselves in an unrelenting cycle of harsh self-judgment, painful emotions, and harmful behaviors. The body is seen as an enemy, something to struggle with, and they may withdraw from life and become isolated. This holistic, wonderfully effective approach by psychotherapist, yogi, Buddhist, and meditation teacher Ann Saffi Biasetti focuses on two key areas of growth shared by people who recover successfully- 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.<br> Biasetti guides readers through nine phases of recovery, with experiential exercises, including yoga-based movement, body-awareness practices, meditations, and reflections (journaling prompts). Readers learn how to release long-held habits of self-criticism and perfectionism and instead rebuild self-compassion, self-care, body awareness and acceptance, and reconnection to the self and to other people.
