As part of a sidebar segment to #Whatsfittrending, I will find resources to balance positive therapies and approaches when working with someone identified as having or whom you suspect has an eating disorder . Below are some links addressing yoga/Pilates/eating disorders, the first of which is a list of peer-reviewed journals regarding the use of yoga in the treatment of eating disorders.
