Anna & Viv 2

When you’re trying to build a healthier relationship with yourself, it’s hard to know where to start, and it’s easy to get stuck. Self-love can often feel like an abstract, even foreign, concept.

That’s why here on Weightless I love to share concrete tools and practices. Actions you can take to help you better understand yourself and feel comfortable, proud and grateful in your own skin. Activities you can do to have fun, play and enjoy yourself and your life.

Today, I’m excited to share several of these tools. Below, Anna, of Curvy Yoga, and Vivienne, of Be Your Own Beloved, reveal their favorite ways to help us reconnect with our bodies and practice self-love.

This is actually the basis of their new e-course. Anna and Vivienne have teamed up to create a beautiful e-course called Practice: Embodying Your Curvy + Beloved Body.

It’s a 4-week course that combines yoga and self-portraiture for cultivating self-love. Registration for the e-course closes this Sun, Aug. 25, at 12:00pm PT. Details below.
