Do you love your body – 100%? If not really, do you wish you did?

First coined by the Austrian neurologist and psychoanalyst Paul Schilder, body image refers to a person’s feelings of the aesthetics or sexual attractiveness of their own body, which may be forced onto them by others or social media.

As we go through the different life stages, our body changes, so can our self-image. Our relationship with our body is a changing one, and one which we should have a good one with. We probably all know that developing a positive body image and a healthy mental attitude is crucial to our happiness and wellness. The age-old question is how?

This workshop will:

  • Create a safe space in which you feel comfortable to open and share whatever you like with the group.
  • Explore and discuss the personal relationship we have our bodies.
  • Bring you through deep exercises guiding you to more self-acceptance, appreciation and self-love of your body.

Come with an open mind, soft heart, and a willingness to go deeper. This is a clothes-on workshop with one mirror exercise. All emotions and tears are welcomed.

Testimonials

“Body Love workshop with Martha creates self awareness and opens new concept of thinking towards one’s own body. I really enjoyed the activities and learnt a lot. We mostly thinks about how other people looks and think that we somewhere forget about our own body, the good and bads and appreciations. It’s a really nice experience to open up to other people in a safe and non-judgemental place the creation of which is a special skill of Martha. Her motivational talk encourages others and makes it easier for the participant to get engaged. That’s all she does while simultaneously leading by her own example. Thanks Martha for organising Body Love workshop” – Anonymous Male, 31 Aug 2018

“It is one of the most reflective and amazing workshop I’ve ever attended! At the first segment, I need to talk about my childhood experiences with my Body. At the second segment, I need to look right in front of the mirror, to body talk about each part of my body! By doing so, it helps me realise that How I see n regard my body is Very much related to my childhood experiences! I used to be very plump as a child, now that I’ve lost weight as an adult, I still see myself as fat n ugly. It makes me realise how much I’ve been judging my body and looking down on myself due to the concept of how I think/ believe I should look as a woman! Attending this Body Love workshop, demonstrates to me it is Time to fully adore n appreciate every part and every cells of my body! And if I can love my Body for what it is, my sense of self-worth and self-esteem will keep increasing!” – Arakah, 19 Dec 2015
