Yoga & Eating Disorder Support Group
with Karen Gilmour & Trish McDermott
Friday, June 3rd - 7:30-8:45pm
The Yoga & Eating Disorder Support Group is a peer led group open to anyone in recovery from, or currently struggling with disordered eating (including Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, Orthorexia, EDNOS, etc). This is a space for in person group support led by two certified yoga teachers who have been through treatment, therapy and know the everyday struggles of living with an eating disorder. This movement, breath, conversation, connection and community is something we found has helped in the healing process and we want to share it with others struggling. This is a space for practice to do just that - to ground, to get present, to release what no longer serves us and invite in all that does. This group is not a means of treatment and is not professional therapy. We are not doctors or therapists.
The class will begin with 20-30 minutes of gentle accessible yoga for all bodies - including asana (poses), breathing, meditation and relaxation. The remainder of the time will be left for group discussion and open conversation around topics relating, but not limited, to body image, self love, self compassion and ways to fill our tool boxes to help ourselves in times of need. At no time should there be mention of numbers, weight and specifics of damaging behaviors shared as this may be harming and triggering to other members in the group. We are here to encourage healing, inspire recovery, and create a supportive space for those affected by eating disorders. (Ages 18 and up).

Summer Vision Board Making for Kids & Teens (ages 11-15)
with Karen Gilmour
Wednesday, June 15th - 4:00-5:30PM
The world has been disregulated for more than 2 years now - create space for kids and teens to focus on their dream life to help them grow with the confidence, hope and excitement that they may have lost! This Summer Vision Board Making Class is an awesome way to help kids and teens get clear about their strengths and dreams heading into the new school year!
In this class, Karen will take your children through gentle yoga and a guided meditation, allowing them to dig deep into their hearts. They will gain some clarity around their strengths, hopes and desires and then get creative making a dream vision board. Kids thrive when having a constant visual reminder on their walls. This is when we naturally attract the things we want to be, do and have in our lives by constantly being reminded by visual images of our goals. Kids and teens will leave the class with their own unique vision board and a renewed sense of hope!
If possible, before the days your kids can print out or cut out pictures of their hobbies, skills, dream holiday destinations, pets and ideal profession or positive words and favorite quotes. We will also provide pictures to choose from. $35

Yoga + Art for Healing
with Claire Bilavsky
Saturday, July 16th - 1:30-3:30pm
Claire is a Yoga Instructor, Reiki Practitioner, and an Artist! Bilavsky’s art can best be described as emotive abstract. Primarily working in oil paints with a focus on figures; she graduated York College of Pennsylvania with a BA in Fine Arts in 2016. Painting has become a source of therapy since discovering ways she could express her emotions through art. With the addition of Yoga and Mindfulness; her paintings and teachings have become even more emphasized on ways to work through all that we may carry.
We are all born creative; it’s just the matter of how we choose to express those parts of ourselves! This workshop will help tap into the artistic side of the brain and navigate stuck energy held in the body. Starting with some fluid movement to initiate the space, followed by meditation and painting! No experience needed. Come as you are. Express what needs to be healed. We'll bring that art supplies (bring your favorite paint brush if you have). $50
