Sprout Yoga

About

Hello! I am the Executive Director of Sprout Yoga. I’ve been doing yoga for over 17 years, and am a certified yoga instructor. I teach in Media, PA and other locations and I volunteer my time to teach trauma survivors yoga, because I, like Sprout Yoga, believe that everyone, everywhere deserves to feel at ease with themselves and their body.

Sprout Yoga is a nonprofit that works to provide education on the healing benefits of yoga for people with eating disorders/disordered eating.  We do this through training, manuals, videos, and workshops.

  2. Thank you for this site. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and suffer from an eating disorder – I have also been practicing yoga off and on for 10 yrs. I want very much to pull myself out of the eating disorder; it goes against everything I believe in and is a very big stumbling block in my life. I have receintly decided to look for yoga asanas that may specifically target my problem. Are there any asanas you would recomend? Or a web site?

    Thanks again,
    Michelle

    • Thanks for your kind words Michelle. We are working on a series of short videos to be published on our website that would address specific EDs (e.g., a video for Complusive Overeating, a video for bulemia, a video for anorexia, a video for trauma) that we hope to have going by the end of the year. We are also working on having specific meditations for eating disorders that we hope to have on the site soon.

      In the mean time, feel free to email me at maggie@sproutyoga.org and I’d be happy to work with you on creating a series of asana that you can do at home.

  3. See especially pages 28-46 on OM. ,

  4. Just found your blog! I’m a survivor of PTSD and a very newly minted yoga teacher. Have added you to my RSS and will be reading 🙂

  5. hello

    i am searching for a yoga studio in nyc with classes that focus on body image and students with eating disorders. can you recommend anywhere i can check out this weekend?

    thanks so much!

    • Hello Sierra!
      I’m sorry that I can’t recommend a class. I would be happy to bring a workshop to NYC if you want to help set that up with a studio or even in a free space like a church or community center if you want to help set that up.
      Feel free to email me at maggie@sproutyoga.org.

  6. Hi there–
    I am doing similiar work out here in California, working with domestic violence survivors.
    Can I interview you? I am writing a master’s thesis on the same.

    Thank you! Namaste– sowmya sowmyaayyar@gmail.com

  7. Hi,
    I have just figured out that what I suffer from is an eating disorder and have been researching ways to deal with it… I live in southern Orange County in California and am wondering what type of yoga class I could look for? I see a lot of different types of cleasses – Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow – but nothing with anything about healing or eating disorders… I was also wondering if you had completed your videos – I looked at the website and didn’t see them… any ideas would be great – thanks
    Sue
