Yoga in the Age of Botox: How to Teach Students with Body Image Challenges

Yoga in the Age of Botox: How to Teach Students with Body Image Challenges

Advanced teacher training can be cumbersome. We want to engage you with useable, meaningful, actionable education now. This week is one of many modular trainings in the 90 Monkeys Advanced Teacher Training Curriculum available in Boulder, CO and across the globe. For this important module, join Amy and Chelsea Roff in Boulder, CO at our cozy 90 Monkeys Studio!


This dynamic and intimate 12-hour training will give you the tools to stand out as a teacher who can effectively address body image challenges and eating disorders with empathy, skill, and cutting-edge knowledge.

Body image insecurities are rampant in today’s yoga culture. Detoxes, hot sweaty classes, and cosmetic fixes are becoming an industry norm. While yoga can be a powerful tool for building body confidence and self-esteem, the culture surrounding yoga often masks and even worsens food and body image issues.

Now more than ever we need yoga teachers who can inspire students to remember their worth, beauty, and greatness! In this timely and impactful teacher training, you’ll learn how to recognize and serve students with body image challenges, eating disorders, and self-loathing. 
You will:

  • Explore the spectrum of food and body image challenges, from undereating and overexercising to binge and emotional eating
  • Learn how to recognize warning signs in students with eating disorders and refer them to professional help
  • Master a formula for having “difficult conversations” with students you’re concerned about
  • Learn teaching strategies to create a safe space for students to drop in and connect with themselves emotionally
  • Expand your teaching repertoire with speaking skills that touch your student’s hearts and catalyze breakthroughs  
  • Recognize the ways you may unintentionally transmit negative body image messages to your students
  • Explore opportunities to incorporate yoga philosophies that encourage students to nourish themselves and love the skin they’re in
  • Become a model and leader for healthy eating, positive body image, radical self-acceptance.

In addition:
Meet and make fabulous friends!
Enjoy the mountain views, fantastic restaurants, and great people in Boulder, CO!

Eat Well!
Healthy snacks will be provided throughout the day such as raw chocolate, beverages, fruit, veggies, and other surprises. Amy’s Italian and Chelsea is a total foodie. It’s how we roll.

This training is part of 90 Monkeys’s Advanced Teacher Training Curriculum. Hours can be put toward a 300 Hour certification with 90 Monkeys.

Friday 6-9pm
Saturday 9:00-12:00pm and 1:30-4:30pm

Amy is returning to Hanuman Yoga Festival in Boulder, CO!  Join her for 3 days of exciting workshops, vendors, music, and community!  Amy will be offering the following workshops:

Dhvani: The Soul of an Experience
The confluence of soulful expression and skillful technique is the key to creating magic in any art form and it’s possible to create that same magic on your mat! Dive into a full spectrum practice, touching on a variety of poses and restoratives using Amy’s impactful alignment techniques. Walk away knowing how to put your new skills into practice so that your heart and soul shine through every time you hit the mat. Open to all levels.

Make Like Ganesh and Love Yourself
It is human to feel down about yourself. Insecurities such as low self esteem and body image challenges are rampant in today’s culture. While yoga can be a powerful tool for building confidence, the culture surrounding yoga can often mask and even worsen these issues. Ganesh is the most familiar of the Hindu deities with his unmistakable elephant head and pot-bellied human body. His peculiar stature and iconography is the source endless inspiration for self acceptance and meaning. This action packed, fortifying practice will teach you a lot about Ganesh, remind you of your greatness, and give your self esteem a boost. Open to all levels.

Beyond The Yamas and Niyamas: Yoga in the Modern World
Every yogi eventually passes through the doors of the yamas and niyamas - it’s why they are taught in almost every yoga teacher training. They are the pragmatic principles designed to guide our actions in a cause-and-effect world (“don’t steal,” “give credit where it is due,” “don’t lie,” etc.). We need human decency and accountability. But yogis are ready for more -  It is time to take ethics one-step further and into modern times. Amy will give you her down-to-earth rundown of the yamas and niyamas and then lead you in a full spectrum practice that will help bring you to the next level of grace and freedom in your life! Open to all levels.

Learn more and purchase your pass!

This year, you can also elevate your festival experience with the NEW Peak Experience Package, which includes a full weekend pass, catered MEALS, daily master classes, and small-group round-table discussions with your favorite teachers, including me!
