Mind. Body. Being.

Have you been struggling with negative body image? This group is for Montclair State students who would like to get support from one another and skills in overcoming struggles with body image and food.  The group will be facilitated by two CAPS therapists and certified yoga instructors (Lisa Westreich, LCSW, RYT & Jude Uy, PhD, RYT) and will combine yoga, meditation and other skills training with the goal of developing a more compassionate relationship with body, self and food.

The first half of the group will focus on discussion and experiential exercises to facilitate awareness, knowledge and skills development. The second half will focus on practicing yoga and mindfulness. All body types and experiences with yoga and mindfulness are welcome!  Please email Lisa Westreich, LCSW, RYT ( or Jude Uy, PhD, RYT ( with any questions or concerns.

Some suggestions for an optimal yoga/mindfulness practice:

  • Wear comfortable clothing

  • Try not to have a big meal directly before the group

  • If you have props (yoga mat, blocks, strap) feel free to bring them, but if not we have mats, blocks, and straps that you can use
