Let's talk about diet culture...
The fixation and obsession with the physical appearance of the body can lead to an emotional struggle and overall daunting feeling of taking of space. Diet culture creates this false idea of the “perfect” and “healthy” body, but constantly thinking about food and your body isn’t truly healthy. We’re left feeling exhausted, unworthy, and defeated.
Does this sound familiar?
Constantly picking yourself apart and comparing it to the body of your younger self
Feeling anxiety over what to wear -- nothing feels comfortable
Constantly worried about the number on the scale
Telling yourself “I’ll be good tomorrow” and then eating everything in sight
Feeling disconnected from your body’s biological cues
What if you could relax and feel safe in your body?
Body acceptance allows us to know that our worth is not defined by our bodies.
We are worthy no matter the size or shape and it’s time for you to recognize that you are worthy of feeling empowered in your own skin. The experience acts as part of a healing process toward listening and honoring your body.
Body Acceptance Support Group
This group is designed to build a strong community around body acceptance and food neutrality. Through this 6-week exploration, we will be unpacking diet culture and how this has affected our own relationships with food, exercise and our bodies. Ultimately, we’ll be working together in creating a plan to foster body kindness and self-care strategies when tough body image moments arise.

Imagine having a peaceful relationship with food, being able to trust your body’s biological cues, stop restricting and finally giving yourself full permission to enjoy all foods.
Intuitive Eating (IE) is a non-diet approach to eating that focuses on internal cues to guide food choices and movement. The process involves learning how to trust your inner body wisdom without judgment or influence from diet culture rules. It is the place you land when you’re sick and tired of your self war with food, body, and movement.
