So, today I went to yoga, & the instructor announced that we would be participating in detox yoga flow, because of course we all would be imbibing/overeating on celebratory foods later on.
1. How did she know that people would be attending Superbowl parties?
2. Why did she assume people would ignore their body’s signals & overeat? Isn’t the point of yoga to tune into our bodies?
3. Does the instructor believe people attend her classes to engage in calorie-burning activities? I thought yoga was about being in the present moment.
I go to yoga because for me, it is prayer in motion. It has been an essential part of my recovery from disordered eating.
These statements made in class are incredibly frustrating & totally triggering for those stuck in unhealthy relationships with food & their bodies.
What would you do? What is your response?
I do not have the guts to talk to the yoga studio owner nor the instructor.
