How much Body Love do you have in your life?
What does Body Love look like to you?
For some, body love means staying away from social media that depicts a negative image about bodies that are not slim or thin. For others body love is treating their body with love and respect, learning to love rather than define, judge or critique. To other people, body love means indulging in all the sensations the body has and playing with them. To me, loving my body is about appreciating all the things it does to carry me through life and giving it what it needs (whether that is rest, movement or a big juicy bowl of my love’s home made pasta, guilt free).
How do you define beauty?
What does your relationship with your body look like?
What stops us from feeling awesome about our bodies?
These are just a few of the questions we will be exploring when we gather for the WW101 Body Love Workshop.
This Womb Wellness 101 workshop is the product of conversations with the participants of WW101-2 and our community. How many of us love our bodies totally? How many of us are amazed by all of the magical things our bodies do every moment of every day? Our bodies regenerate, they feel and create, they function and they work, even when we’re not. They’re amazing!
Together, we will be sharing our experiences, exploring the topic and learning tools and techniques that we can incorporate into our daily lives to improve our relationships with our bodies.
During the workshop we will:
- Share and connect with others in an honest, safe and judgement free space
- Hold space for one another (read about holding space here)
- Define what beauty is for ourselves
- Explore affirmative tools that you can use in your life going forward
- Understand why advertising is meant to make us feel crappy about ourselves
- Get present in your body
- Practice some body loving, heart & womb opening yoga with Sam Warren
- Shift and/or unblock energies in the body with Reiki
- Learn to listen to and open up communication with the body
- Celebrate the magic that our bodies are
