What We Talk About When We Talk to Our Bodies: Language, Body Love, and Yoga with Rachel Estapa

What We Talk About When We Talk to Our Bodies: Language, Body Love, and Yoga with Rachel Estapa

What does body positivity and body acceptance mean? How does body positivity take back the word "fat?" And how can we use yoga as tools for self-actualization and personal wellness?

Join Rachel Estapa, creator of More to Love Yoga®, for a hybrid event where we will learn and explore the vocabulary behind the body positivity and body acceptance movements and talk about why "fat" is not a negative word. We will follow the More to Love Yoga® philosphy and conclude with a body inclusive yoga session.

This program is geared toward ages 10-15 and their caregivers. If you have any questions, please contact rdgchild@noblenet.org

Rachel Estapa, creator of More to Love Yoga® , is passionate about empowering people to love
and appreciate their bodies. Rachel is a certified Kripalu yoga instructor and iPEC certified
transformational life coach, equipped with over 1,000 professional training hours in the necessary
tools to share what she has learned and empower others to love, accept, and care for their bodies
and their entire selves. Rachel has taught thousands of bigger bodies the joy of yoga and with the
support of the More to Love community, is happily welcoming new people to join the path of
discovering there is more to love about themselves.
