Welcome to Body Positive Works (BPW). A unique, inviting, and empowering place dedicated to banishing the stigma attached to talking about body image – and celebrating ourselves, our bodies, and our lives!
When you walk through our doors, you’ll find a safe, comfortable space where you can pause. Breathe. And reconnect with your true self.
You will also discover a “happy place” – filled with positive energy, laughter, and fun! BPW is all about feeling good about yourself and knowing you are valued for exactly who you are.
The BPW philosophy is grounded in these sacred beliefs:
Every body is beautiful. We live in a toxic culture where it is unacceptable to like our bodies. At BPW, we are changing that. In our space, you will never hear the words, “I feel gross,” “I ate too much,” or “I need to lose weight.”
Perfection is imperfection. We are ENOUGH. Right now, exactly as we are – not when we lose weight or get plastic surgery. Here, there is no competition. No goal to achieve. And absolutely no body shaming allowed!
Thoughts become things. We spend too much time being unkind to ourselves, and our negative thoughts have tremendous power. BPW’s services and programs are like a “makeover” for the mind, helping you transform the way you think about your body. And your self.
Positivity is contagious. Nurture love, kindness, and body positivity – and pass it on. We live by the Yoga Sutra 2.33: “When disturbed by negative thoughts, opposite (positive) ones should be thought of. This is pratipaksha bhavana.”
All are welcome. BPW is truly for every body. We tailor our services to the needs of each individual, and invite people of all ages, cultures, sexes, and gender identities to join us in honoring the inner qualities that make each and every one of us unique.
The Body Positive Works began with a simple idea: To create a place offering body positive programs and services to help women, men, and children connect with and accept their true selves.
Our vision grew into what we like to call a “boutique with benefits.” BPW is a one-stop shop offering integrated services, programs, and classes to support individuals on their journey to recovery, long-term growth, and overall health and wellness. Just like your favorite boutique, we’ve brought everything together under one roof to make it easier for you to find exactly what you need.
We’ve combined traditional services like psychotherapy and medical and nutritional counseling with holistic modalities such as Ayurveda and Yin yoga. Our health and wellness classes are designed to bring you home to your own body – to release stress, detoxify, and heal. And our experienced practitioners share a common goal: to help others feel good about themselves.
All of us here at BPW invite you to explore, grow, and be empowered in our safe and joyful community!
