Listen to your body, learn, and thrive.

Since 1996, we have been helping people develop balanced, joyful self-care and a relationship with their bodies that is guided by love, forgiveness, and humor.

Through The Body Positive Institute—our comprehensive online educational platform—you can access introductory courses about our model as well as intensive training to become a Be Body Positive Facilitator. Our research-supported educational resources are appropriate for students and staff in educational settings, treatment professionals, and the general public.

Our Model

The Be Body Positive Model is comprised of The 5 Competencies, fundamental skills we can practice on a daily basis to live peacefully and healthfully in our bodies. In practicing 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 further the Body Positive Movement by teaching The 5 Competencies to educators, student leaders, community activists, and individuals through our facilitator trainings, digital wellness courses, and our book Embody.

"A radical paradigm shift, but so simple, elegant, and intuitive. Love yourself and your body!"
