about this event
Celebrating the natural body of the modern woman workshop
Join us at Wanderlust Hollywood on February 18th, from 4:00pm - 7:30pm for an empowering yoga session lead by Jordan Younger "The Balanced Blonde" followed by a workshop that will explore the generational programing that is stunting our ability to thrive as modern day women with Katie Willcox. Women are accomplishing more than ever before, and yet there are still limiting beliefs we carry with us, like the constant struggle to like what you see in the mirror or feeling like you aren't good enough no matter how much you accomplish. We will examine the symbolism of the female body throughout various points in history and locate the origin of the outdated programing we are accepting as truth but holds no relevance in today's time. By looking deeper into our past, our society, and the relationship we have with our mothers and grandmothers, we will challenge the outdated and false beliefs about ourselves and create a foundation for self-love to flourish. This event is in partnership with Project Heal, an organization that provides funding for people suffering from eating disorders to retrieve the life-saving treatment they need to thrive. In honor of eating disorder awareness week 10% of the proceeds will be donated to Project heal and their efforts.
Doors open at 4:00pm

6:20pm - 7:10pm
This event is in honor of eating disorder awareness week. Each one of the amazing women on our panel is not only living a vibrant and healthy lifestyle but also created brands and organizations that help others and our community. Let's talk! Let's discuss some of the things that are contributing to our culture of disordered thinking, eating, and being. Together we can learn, grow, and evolve together.
Our Partner Project Heal
Kristina is the co-found of Project Heal, a non-profit organization that provides funding for those suffering from eating disorders.
The founders of Project HEAL, Liana Rosenman, and Kristina Saffran, met while undergoing treatment for anorexia nervosa at just 13-years-old. The two girls helped each other to reach full recovery and decided to help others achieve it as well.
In the spring of 2008, both at the age of 15, they founded Project HEAL to raise money for others suffering from eating disorders who want to recover but are unable to afford treatment. Unfortunately, insurance coverage for eating disorders is severely lacking, leaving many unable to get the help they need.
Project Heal and Kristina's efforts have resulted in 70 people receiving sponsorship for eating disorder treatment to date.
