The Body Positive
We believe that women can make the choice to love and accept themselves just as they are, and that we can fight against the messages we get daily that tell us we're not good enough and that we have to change ourselves. In TBP, women learn how to move and eat intuitively and how to love their bodies and themselves for the beautiful, amazing and unique individuals they are.

My favorite thing about Body Positive is that it can be whatever you need that week—you can vent about or seek help for whatever’s troubling you. Body Positive is an excellent space to learn self-love and to counteract any societal pressures you may be feeling. We aim to create a community of students who are focused on creating a network of self-love and acceptance.
