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.

We invite you to think of this time of sheltering in place as an opportunity to study and develop Be Body Positive leadership skills so you can provide online support to the people in your community who are most vulnerable during this time of social isolation.

Through The Body Positive Institute—our online educational platform—you can access our course to help you stay positively connected to your own body, as well as our 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.

In-Person Trainings

Contact us to schedule a Be Body Positive training in your community. Due to COVID-19, our in-person trainings are on hold.

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.

During times of high levels of stress and anxiety, people are at a much greater risk for disruptions in embodiment. Our Model offers the resources people need to stay positively connected to their bodies and practice loving self-care.

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.
