Love your Body. Live your Life.

Welcome to The Body Positive! We are creating a world in which people are liberated from self-hatred, value their beauty and identity, and use their energy and intellect to make positive changes in their own lives and in their communities. Since 1996, The Body Positive has been achieving this mission by re-connecting youth and adults to their innate body wisdom so they can practice more balanced, joyful self-care, and cultivate a relationship with their whole selves that is guided by love, forgiveness, and humor.

Our Model

The Be Body Positive Model is comprised of five core Competencies, the fundamental skills we can practice on a daily basis to live peacefully and healthfully in our bodies. When we become proficient—competent—at using these skills, we are able to care for our whole selves from a place of self-love and appreciation, which allows us to act on our purpose and life goals.

We teach our model through public workshops, professional trainings, student leadership, and our book Embody
