OMG People are Seeing My Body Again!

A workshop on how to cope

Transitioning back to

in person?

As the United States is swiftly transitioning to more in-person time, I am offering a new (online) body love workshop called, “OMG people are seeing my body again! Practical tips on how to cope.” Contact me to discuss bringing this workshop to your group, organization or team.

Why this workshop? Why now?

As a body image coach, my clients are coming to me with anxiety about returning to more “normal” times, i.e. having their body be more visible again. This is leading to a lot of body confusion. Clients tell me they believe in body positivity theoretically, but it’s feeling extra hard right now. That’s why I’ve decided to share some context and practical tips for how to approach body acceptance in this time of transition.

Hey, I'm Talia.

I’m a facilitator and certified professional coach. I want to live in a world where all bodies are accepted and loved.

 

I haven’t always been so into my body. I fluctuated throughout my life between being somewhat neutral to actively hating and trying to control the size of my body through food and exercise.

 

Then one day, I realized I had a choice: I could continue to try to control my body forever, or I could finally let go. 


Choosing body acceptance felt like freedom: finally being aligned with who I really am. That’s why I now work to share the tools for body liberation. I believe it is our birthright to get to love and be in relationship with our bodies. If that sounds appealing to you, I hope you’ll join me.

My experience:

  • 15+ years facilitating workshops and leading groups 

  • 5+ years coaching 

  • Coach certification through Leadership that Works and the International Coach Federation 

  • 20+ years as a social change activist

  • 35 years having a body

WHY SHOULD I BRING THIS WORKSHOP TO MY TEAM?

​A recent U.K study showed that 53% of adults reported they felt worse or much worse about their bodies since COVID-19, primarily due to more time in isolation. Shame and body image are highly connected. Brene Brown’s research on shame shows that shame thrives in isolation as well. The lockdown created the perfect storm for negative body image to snowball. That’s why I believe in creating safe spaces where people can come together to engage their hearts, minds, and guts to begin to address negative body image. The workshop will leave participants feeling energized and ready to take on in-person connection.

WHAT DOES IT COST?

Nonprofits: sliding scale $600-$800 depending on size

Corporations: $1500

Negative body image can be overwhelming. Let's create space for your team members to get some relief and return to work with confidence.
