I was immediately inspired by Dr. Moore’s work with girls and women about body image, trauma, self-expression. She is a brilliant, big hearted, courageous leader. Our conversation is extraordinary – covering topics from body image to leadership to humility and more.
- How and why she created Embody Love Movement, inspired by teen girls
- Recovery from eating disorders and body dysmorphia
- The epidemic of “general not enoughness”
- 3 big hits that created her not-enoughness (hint: being a girl, body-centered family, being not-straight in a conservative Christian family)
- How a yoga activism training launched a calling for change
- A curriculum written on a barf bag on the plane, and how it started an international movement
- Using our past experiences to build resilience and connection
- Yoga and meditation created fertile soil for her work
- Learning humility through launching an organization “without skills”
- Clawing out of a shame spiral: self-compassion and self-forgiveness
- “Sneak attacks” of insidious thoughts women have about their bodies
- Being curious on our spiritual path and where our physical body fits in
- Women boldly owning their leadership qualities
Dr. Moore’s work has been featured in the books Yoga and Body Image (eds. Klein and Guest-Jelly) and Yoga and Eating Disorders: Ancient Healing for Modern Illness (eds. Costin and Kelly) as well as National Geographic Magazine, Yoga Journal, Yoga International, Mantra, Elephant Journal, and Origin Magazine. She created the collegiate BodyImage3D program for Tri-Delta, which is experienced by every sophomore member.
She is a National Eating Disorder Association’s advice columnist, an advisor for World Muse, and a faculty member for Off the Mat, Into the World, a social-profit that empowers leaders to become conscious activists. In 2015, she was featured as one of ten “Game Changers” by the Yoga Journal and chosen as one of 100 “Most Influential Global Leaders Empowering Women Worldwide” by EBW2020.
