Last night, one of our Minded staff members, Nicole, went to the UK Premier of 'Embrace' in Convent Garden, London. Embrace is told from the point of view of Taryn Brumfitt as she traverses the globe talking to experts, women in the street and well-known personalities about the alarming rates of body image issues that are seen in people of all body types. In her affable and effervescent style, Taryn bares all (literally) to explore the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions.

After 24 months of travelling, interviewing, production and post production Taryn and the Embrace team have created a film that is relevant, relatable, highly engaging – and vital in this day and age of appearance-obsession; which causes untold amounts of suffering and pain.

Body image issues are hugely relevant to us as yoga teachers, therapists and practitioners. A growing body of research suggests both that an alarming number of women and men seek out yoga to amend the shape of their bodies in the first instance and/but also that yoga can be hugely beneficial to people struggling with these issues.

Nicole is hosting another screening of this vital and timely film at the Swiss Cottage Odeon on 6th Feb, 2017 at 6.30pm. The original batch of tickets sold out....so the screening capacity has just been increased. Only around 45 tickets remain and are selling out fast!
