Saturday, October 20th -- Body Reclaimed Workshop
2:00 - 6:00pm
with Holly Toronto and Jacquelyn Tierney
We live in a world where 91% of women are dissatisfied with their bodies and are putting life on hold until their body changes. This dissatisfaction is impacting how we eat, move, connect with our friends and partners, pursue our passions and express ourselves. We're more stressed, anxious and disconnected from our bodies than ever before. And the methods we are using to manage the dissatisfaction aren't working.
Because the physical body is the vessel that channels and supports the health of creativity, love and abundance, when we choose to love and witness the physical body we are in, we become an energetic match for the vibrant creativity, romantic love and infinite abundance we desire; therefore, this workshop is intended to quiet the negative chatter in our minds and the messages we are receiving daily about how we should look or who we should be and to guide participants in the process of beginning to live the life they desire in the body they are in today.
Through movement, meditation, teaching and self portraiture work, we will begin the process of releasing body shame and step into all of the possibilities that open up when we embrace radical self-acceptance.
Participants will learn:
*How to take care of their bodies without dieting or restriction
*Tools to boost body acceptance
*How to create community that is centered around acceptance
*Self portraiture skills to see themselves from a new, more empowering perspective *Opening up channels to love, abundance, creativity through body love/body acceptance
How to prepare for this workshop: To fully participate in this workshop you will need a journal, writing instrument and small dslr or mobile phone camera.
As a Certified Health Coach with a specialty in body image, I support women and men in finding freedom from body shame and food fixation. I use a non-diet, pro-self care approach that focuses on cultivating a peaceful relationship to the body and food, while avoiding deprivation, restriction, guilt or shame. From this place, my clients are able to make empowered decisions for their health, feel amazing in their bodies and live the life they desire. I am extensively trained in the Transformational Coaching Method through Health Coach Institute. I work with private clients, groups and run online courses. Additionally, I lead workshops, classes and participate in panels discussing body positivity and self-love. In my spare time, you'll find me with my loved ones, cooking a delicious meal, drinking wine, doing yoga and being surrounded by beauty.
With a stellium in my first house/scorpio, I am most intrigued by how we see ourselves, how we want to be seen, and how we actually show up in the world. My work is inspired by the transformation that occurs within and outside of us as we redefine and reclaim who we are in age, love and collected experiences; and therefore, it best serves those who are ready to show up in their relationships with themselves. With a lifelong training in the sacred, fine and healing arts I am able to create environments and experiences that facilitate and cultivate radical presence in the body and the reclamation of self. Through the healing medicine of portrait photography, sacred energetic practices and embodiment workshops, my clients, women on journeys of self-discovery and transformation, are guided back home to their voices, divine feminine power and bodies untamed; thus giving themselves the space to call in their creativity, love and dreams to the fullest.
