Whew! I'm glad you found me....I've been waiting for you!
Just a few notes about the creator of Rebel Wellness and Rebel Body Confidence.....me!
I created Rebel Wellness as a place to empower and celebrate women who want to rock out their lives wholeheartedly, without judgement and shame, in the body that they were given. I believe that if we shift our energy from trying to be something we aren't and focus that energy on how we want to show up for ourselves and others, it will change the world.
When I think of all the things that women could accomplish (shit, that I could have accomplished) in our lives if we used all the energy we spent on self-loathing and criticism to make our mark on the world.....
In our culture today women are bombarded with messages about how we are not enough. Messages that we are not thin enough, strong enough, young enough, or beautiful enough flood television, films and even our personal social media feeds. The U.S. diet industry rakes in over 66 BILLION dollars every year preying on women’s sense of disconnection from themselves. 75% of American women are currently on a “diet.”
I spent over 30 years struggling with my body shape and size, my imperfections and flaws. I felt that my life would be good once I lost weight, bought that wrinkle cream, took that fitness class, had better clothes. etc…
I realized that I have the choice how I want to treat my body, my own monkey mind, and my adventurous spirit. I started to get really, really ANGRY that society was telling me that I wasn’t beautiful because I didn’t look like the models in the magazines, or other yogis in my yoga classes. I started to rebel against the idea that I was “supposed” to lose weight, treat my smile lines, and abhor the cellulite on my thighs and butt.
Screw that. Madison Avenue can kiss my lily white Midwestern keister.
Through my yoga and meditation practice, some really helpful coaching, and a support network of strong women, I began to accept myself for who I really am. I began to love my curves and embrace my imperfections. This process was so intensely changed my life for the better that I am dedicating myself to sharing it with others. I want to show you the path to body confidence so you can feel as good in your skin as I do in mine.
If you want to live a life of confidence, empowerment, and deep connection with your body and soul, then this website is for you. I hope you enjoy all that I meant it to be. Liberation. Empowerment. Soul-sista-hood.
You are my tribe.
