Sarah Harry: Co-director, Body Positive Australia

My NativeAdVantage:

Bio:

Sarah Harry is one of Australia’s leading Body Image and Eating Disorder specialists. Her roles in this field are varied and she offers a unique perspective as an experienced Clinician, Lecturer, Researcher, Yoga Teacher and Author. She is the co-director of Body Positive Australia alongside the amazing Fiona Sutherland. Sarah was the first yogi in Australia to offer yoga for bigger bodies. She has practised yoga for more than 20 years and has been running specialist classes and retreats for the last few years all over Australia. Sarah has more than 15 years’ experience counselling individuals and groups with all kinds of eating and body image issues, she has worked in the public and private sectors, lectures at universities and has just published her first book "Fat Yoga - Yoga for All Bodies"

What do I do best?

I think I am a passionately hard worker. I just love what I do and I work so hard for equality for those in bigger bodies (any inequality I see though too). But my passion is my driver, without that self-belief in the true discrimination which is occurring I couldn’t keep this level of passion up! I have been working in this space for 15 years and I want to do it for 15 more. I am organized and I balance time well.  I know when to walk away and I know when to nap! So I do self-care pretty well too! And I have a freakish ability to grow my hair really fast! (Relevant??!!)

What makes me the best version of myself?

What makes me the best version of myself is my authenticity. I am real, what you see is what you get (I am Australian too, so that helps). I don’t give up. I have a strong sense of self belief. When I pitched the publisher for my book I wrote on it “the best pitch you will ever read” ….true or not, I have a published book now!

What are my aspirations?

My business goal is to make “Fat Yoga” the yoga part of my business sustainable and maybe turn a profit rather than a love project.

My second business aspiration is to talk at TED.

My personal aspiration….honestly, I want to raise two amazing boys (and get them through puberty, which looms)

I could go on and on here, I have lot and lots of goals (see passion above I guess!)

My Biggest Success?)

I was very proud to see my book “Fat Yoga, Yoga for All Bodies” in print. I cried.

I am also very proud of an upcoming public health campaign which shows all bodies can be fit and healthy.

My Most Challenging Moment?

A difficult personal decision was to leave my marriage where I was very unhappy. I lived under the poverty line, it was a very scary time, but I had the love and support of my family and I don’t know I would be doing any of this if I did not get out from under that abusive relationship.

My Motto?

“The most important thing about me is not what I look like” Sarah Harry

My Favorite People/Role Models?

My business partner in Body Positive Australia – Fiona Sutherland is a role model of mine. We do such different things but I am her biggest cheerleader and she mine both personally and professionally.

My Mum makes all of this possible. No way would my life work without the time she gives each week to look after my boys so I can work 1 night a week. Not only that. She brings me meals, her ability to listen and a never ending supply of unconditional love.

My friends are also some of my favorite people on the planet. We love each other and hope to live in a tiny house community when we are old and infirm.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

I really do love Ubud! I also love the laneways and food and coffee of Melbourne. I really, really want to go to the Maldives with a loving partner one day to. I still believe in love!

My Favorite Products/Objects?

My mat? I’s come with me to every hospital admission I have ever had!  I can’t live without my laptop sadly either. I love things, but as I lean closer to Buddhism I try to take a less grasping view of them.

My Current Passions?

I love restorative yoga when someone else is teaching. I love the sense of community that the Fat Activists now have which I didn’t know was there years ago. I love jewelry and my 2 new tattoos. I love that I am somehow pulling off a blend of serious academic life and deep spiritual life. I have a strong respect for both the east and the west. Without modern medicine I would not be walking, without yoga I would not have survived. So I choose to blend both.
