This follow-up to the groundbreaking work Yoga and Body Image is a collection of personal essays meant to support your journey toward self-acceptance and, in time, self-love.
Sharing their own stories of individual and collective turning points, the contributors explore how body image and yoga practice intersect with race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, dis/ability, class and socioeconomic status, age, size, and society.
These thirty pieces were collected and edited by participants in the Yoga and Body Image Coalition, an organization committed to body love through yoga that is accessible, body positive, and reflects the full range of human diversity. With a special emphasis on how you can take action to build community and challenge destructive attitudes, norms, and structures, Yoga Rising is a resource for the continuing work of healing and growing ourselves and our world as we move toward liberation for all.
