Millennials were raised being surrounded by some pretty toxic “ideal” body types - wafer thin white bodies. But as we all know, the “ideal” body isn’t generally the average body, or what’s healthy to achieve. In this episode, we’re looking into body acceptance and healing with Marie-Pier from The Balanced Practice.

Our body (or our Earth Suit as Marie-Pier likes to call it!) is our place of being and living, and it does so many amazing things for us, and that's what we should be focussing on! We believe it's important to learn how to love and accept our body and all its changes, including all of the amazing transformations it goes through with motherhood. Marie-Pier is an expert in helping people recover from body issues and issues around weight and food, and we’re so excited to chat with her today.

This episode is taking a close look at the “ideal” body type, why and how that came to be, and all the ways it has and will continue to change. We’re also talking about disordered eating, diet culture, and changing our mindset around all of it. This is such an informative episode and I’m sure you’re going to love what Marie-Pier has to say. Our body is the place we inhabit and loving it is so important for our everyday lives and wellness.
