On this week’s 51%, taking a breath and the time to regroup. First, a yoga therapist addresses food addictions.Then, does yoga have to go om-less? And a writer looks at yoga and storytelling. I’m Allison Dunne and this is 51%.

By now, school is in full swing, the summer season is a memory, and life is b-u-s-y. Before we allow the holiday season to take hold, now could be a good time to focus and center and breathe, and rewire our brains. First, we turn to Portland, Oregon yoga therapist and educator Sarahjoy Marsh, who has penned Hunger, Hope & Healing, a guidebook to recovery from disordered eating, food addiction, and body image issues. It’s a synthesis of yoga, psychology, and neuroscience. 

Sarahjoy Marsh is a Portland, Oregon yoga scholar, recovered food addict, and advocate for using yoga for social justice. She also recently penned Hunger, Hope & Healing, a guidebook to recovery from disordered eating, food addiction, and body image issues. 

Earlier this year, a California Court of Appeals upheld a ruling that teaching yoga in school neither violates the constitution nor promotes Eastern religions. Sandip Roy reports for KALW.
