About the Event

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION (Proceeds going to the Warrior Women Scholarship Fund for women & girls to access self-defense & martial arts).

THIS WILL BE RECORDED AND SENT OUT TO REGISTRANTS WHO COULD NOT ATTEND ONLINE/LIVE

Join us for this research-based body positivity webinar that will focus on teh social/emotional, nutritional, and physical aspects of body positivity.

We'll explore the benefits of taking a positive or even neutral perspective towards your body. We'll discuss how to cultivate self-love in an environment full of social media that holds us to seemingly impossible standards and discover ways to help each other as we all learn to be comfortable and confident in our skin. Participants will also get tips on how to assess their gyms and training environments and will learn what to look for when seeking a training facility that supports body positivity.

We'll also discuss healthy eating and learn how to shift our mindset when it comes to dieting. We'll discuss changing our perspective on food so that practicing body-positive nutrition is an enjoyable experience that allows you to enjoy fueling your body.

We'll also discuss the physical and emotional signs of disordered/maladaptive eating, and discuss the "do's and don'ts" of intervention.
