Body Positivity: “Body diversity and embracing all body types, shapes, sizes, colours and revelling in the beauty of the human form,” -Body Image Movement.
Way too many women (and a growing number of men) live their lives through comparison. Comparison to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show models; to the latest TV, movie, and media stars; to their best friends; to the fellow gym-goers; to everyone and anyone…except for themselves.
Start putting yourself first, start showing the body you were given compassion instead of ridicule, start embracing the shape and form your courageous ancestors handed down to you, because it makes you who you are. Don’t mind your age, it is never too early or too late to start loving yourself. If you are struggling with body shame and find yourself yo-yo dieting, or constantly worried about weight gain (see the Disordered Eating & Chronic Dieting Page for more information on this)– let’s dive in and break the cycle. Perhaps you find yourself getting stuck in the viscious cycle of feeling then eating, then feeling and eating more, let’s work together to break those patterns once and for all.
We cannot wait to help you on your journey as we: unravel diet culture, work through shame, discuss what vulnerability means to you, name fat-phobia, discover your lineage, practice the daily self-love exercises we will teach you, learn where your self-hatred comes from, and of course, to reach a point of inner growth, love, and true acceptance.
