Body Image is a hot topic at the moment and rightly so. With the rise of social media, we are bombarded all the time with perfectly curated images of sometimes unattainable beauty (ahem, can you say Photoshop?).
At this time, more than any other, we need to be aware of our own body image and know that no matter what we 'think' we might see in the mirror, we are all awesome human beings who deserve to love ourselves unconditionally.
On March 10 in Stirling, the Perth body confidence tribe unites providing an informative morning session on how to maintain body positivity. The collaboration between Heidi Anderson, Dr Katherine Iscoe, Georgia Gibbs and Kate Wasley will provide participants with keynotes on their experiences with body image. The ladies bring a unified message to the Perth stage that all bodies are different, but all bodies still deserve self-love and care.
Following a backlash of online comments, Georgia Gibbs and Kate Wasley developed a new Instagram account last year to promote a healthy body image for women. The supermodels feel that women should be more conscious of their health and less conscious of their size. The hope @AnyBodyCo will promote body acceptance and stop people from placing so much value on appearance.
Dr Katherine Iscoe, a researcher in body image and an educator in body confidence provides insight in her research and previous personal experiences with body confidence. Dr Katherine will talk at the event regarding her preventative approach to body image issues and how ladies can have a more self-caring role in supporting themselves and others.
Heidi, from 92.9's Heidi, Xavier and Ryan, previously had an obsession with weight loss and fitness pages that consistently post before and after pictures. Heidi will talk about building a positive mind frame around the body.
This not-to-be-missed event is also presented by personal trainer Jess Pinili and yogi Mel Howard from Twisting Peacock Yoga.
