Ep. 18: Eating Disorder Recovery & Yoga for All - Dianne Bondy

Eating Disorder Recovery and Yoga For All with Dianne Bondy 

Dianne Bondy is a yoga teacher and the founder of an online Yoga studio called Yogasteya, where she welcomes everyone. Going through her own recovery journey from eating disorder, she has now become a social justice activist and one of the leading voices promoting representation in Yoga.  

Dianne joins me today to tell the story of her eating disorder and recovery.  She also shares how the distorted medical community perceived and handled her disorder a few decades ago.  

We also talk about her long love of yoga and how it's help her heal her relationship to her body.  

“What my yoga has taught me is my awareness of my body, my body as a vehicle of my own divinity and a way to enjoy my life.”  
 – Dianne Bondy
