At 8 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 15, author, speaker, yoga teacher and eating disorder advocate Chelsea Roff climbed on the roof of the Tao Healing Arts Center, at 2309 on Main Street.
She laid down her yoga mat and is refusing to come down until her project, 'Yoga For Eating Disorders' is funded to the tune of $50,000. She’s calling the demonstration #OccupyYouAreBeautiful.
"I could be on the roof four days, two days..a week, two weeks! I am staying on the roof until ALL of the funds for Yoga For Eating Disorders are raised - no matter how long it takes! I am staying on the roof and waiting this out, because I really believe in this project..." Roff said in a video statement.
Roff says her demonstration is one of solidarity with eating disorder sufferers everywhere and there will be an array of free yoga and meditation classes on the roof. The public is welcome to join Roff on the rooftop.
