Yoga From the Inside Out Webinar Series

Well, for years now, people have been asking me to talk about my first book and to discuss body image issues, yoga and practical ways to transcend the grip of these difficult issues. I am headed out to James Madison university to give a talk on the topic tomorrow and as I prepared my presentation, I realized that it was finally time to offer a short course to people who might be interested in exploring these issues for themselves, outside of a yoga classroom. I have always been a bit reluctant to talk directly about body image in a public class for a lot of different reasons. (I mean, think about it- Joe is there to get a good stretch and my theme is all about loving your body and letting go of cultural stereotypes, etc. Not that Joe couldn't benefit from that but seriously, it would probably be too much for the average Wednesday night hatha yoga experience. Just sayin.) .

Each week I will present a topic, open the floor for questions and sharing and offer some journal assignments, creative and practical suggestions to incorporate into the upcoming week. My wish is that the online community we create can be a support structure, an inspiration and a forum to look through the veils of our self-limiting beliefs and behaviors and to step into a new possibility of deeper self-love and self-acceptance.

Here's some more info:

Yoga From the Inside Out: The Transformational Power of Self-Love
Webinar Series with Christina Sell
February 22, February 29 and March 7

 7:00-8:00pm CST
Tuition: $75
Regardless of a person’s actual body size and shape, many people are plagued with negative feelings about their bodies that affect their self-image and self-esteem. For some, these negative feelings result in eating disorders while other people live trapped in chronic patterns of dieting, self-criticism and self-doubt.  Join author and international yoga instructor, Christina Sell, for a series of informative and inspiring talks about how negative body image can be recognized and transformed through awareness and self-love.  Whether you or someone you know  is struggling with these issues, this series will shed light on the important underlying issues related to self-defeating patterns and will offer practical suggestions, practices and tools for establishing new behaviors and beliefs.
Participants will need a copy of Christina Sell’s book Yoga From the Inside Out: Making Peace with Your Body Through Yoga, an unlined journal, a box of crayons, an open heart, a curious mind and a sense of humor and adventure. Each session will involve lecture, Q&A and journal questions.

What an amazing offering, this is great! Not in the budget at the moment but I am currently reading the book and finding it very helpful. Thank you!

EW! 75 big ones for a 1 hr class, and still people have to shill out for your book?? Anusara is still throbbing through your veins. Sorry.

This is really interesting Christina. Will the three one-hour sessions be available in some way to look at at another time, or do we have to be able to watch a live stream? I ask because I am in Europe and would love to take part, but am unsure even what time of day that would be, here in Berlin?

Thanks you guys.

@Tina- it's $75 for the 3 classes and if money is an issue for someone, I always do my best to offer scholarships and discounts. The book is the basis for the course so it is not "required" but it would be useful. It is a great resource and so while it may seem like a lot to you, it is not my intention to profit needlessly or in any kind of greedy way, anusara or not.

All the courses will be recorded and available for listening later. I am also going to make a blog for people to have an online virtual community that is private for the participants so that there can be discussions and processing and a way to share personal reflections with each other.
