Often society tells us to look or feel a certain way about our bodies. Many of the stories we’ve been told throughout our lifetime – whether friends, family or media – can negatively impact how we view ourselves. It is not uncommon for these messages to drive shame, self-criticism or foster unhealthy thoughts or behaviors.
The Body Acceptance Project is designed to help you challenge negative internalized messages about your body, learn to love and accept yourself without criticism, shame or judgement, and begin to incorporate mindfulness and gratitude toward you and your body.
Group leaders Shelby O’Keefe, a Functional Health Coach, and Breezy Grotzinger, a Therapist, bring a unique set of skills and training that use elements of CBT, Mindfulness, Yoga and Body Movement, to help you challenge negative messages, define and implement a healthy, positive view of self and help you determine what kind of a relationship you want with your body.
