Eating Disorder Course
in partnership with
East London NHS Foundation Trust
About the Course
We have designed an 8 week yoga course to support your recovery in partnership with the NHS Eating Disorders service in Central Beds. This offers you an opportunity to find a mindful way to connect with your body, which may be alongside your talking therapy. This course is specifically aimed at people who struggle with food and eating, whatever form that takes.
You don’t need to have any experience of yoga in order to take part. The group is aimed at yogis of all levels and the focus is not to get your poses right but to find ways to be with your mind and body that are gentle and kind. In terms of physical intensity, the group is designed to be no more intense than the average household chore.

up to 10 people

1 hour 30 minutes

In order to make sure that we continuously improve the way we run our yoga groups we decided to include the collection of feedback as a major part of the group. At the beginning and end of the group we will ask you to fill in a few questionnaires. If you then want to tell us more about your experience we welcome this in a confidential conversation.
