Eating Disorder Awareness "Not a Walk" - Restore, Reset, Relax in-person Yoga Event
Every February the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) spearheads the national effort to increase awareness of eating disorders and the impact eating disorders have on individuals and loved ones. You may have seen efforts or even participated in previous awareness events such as the annual NEDA walk in October. The Eating Disorder Coalition of Iowa (EDCI) is proud to host our third annual awareness event with a focus on restoring, resetting and relaxing. We are turning the traditional “awareness walk” on its head with an in-person yoga and mindfulness event we call Eating Disorder Awareness (Not a) Walk or #notawalk for short. We hope you join us for our Restore, Reset and Relax event!
Saturday February 25th | 10am-11:30am
West48 Conference Center | 1601 48th St #100, West Des Moines, IA 50266

The group meets virtually via zoom on the third Thursday of every month at 8am.
