WHAT IS THE BODY CONFIDENCE Code?
Body Confidence Code (BCC) is a month-long online course to teach women like you how to love their body and make health and happiness work for your unique life. More to Love women value personal growth and desire freedom from negative body image.
Students of the BCC easy-to-follow activities comprised of exercises and assignments designed to teach an aspect of body confidence. Each student shares their work in a private and secure online social network, and receives encouragement and feedback from peers and from the instructor, Rachel Estapa. I am a trained, certified, and fully accredited life coach & yoga instructor whose writing and work on body acceptance has been featured in print and online publications worldwide.
WHO IS THIS course FOR?
This class is for any woman who has felt embarrassed, frustrated, or self-conscious regarding the size and shape of their body. The BCC contains lessons that are perfect for someone just beginning their body-acceptance journey; it also has more advanced practices that long-time body-image warriors will find deeply rewarding. While the class is tailored to plus-size women, it certainly isn’t exclusive of other body shapes and size.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each week during the four week course, everyone is assigned lessons and activities. You’ll be encouraged to capture your experience however you want. It might be through a photo, a piece of writing, a thought, or an inspirational picture—it’s totally up to you. The group aspect is a core piece of the program, as everyone will be working on the same challenge so it will be motivational and inspirational.
WHO SEES WHAT I SHARE?
Your privacy and security is of utmost importance to me, and only registered members of the class directly invited by me will have access to the private Facebook group. For extra confidence, make sure your security settings on Facebook are configured how you want them to be. If I discover anyone sharing images without approval, they will be banned from the page and removed from the class.
HOW DO I GET THE lessons each week?
Via email sent out weekly + through the private class portal
Didn't you have another class like this? More to Love Class?
Yes! More to Love Class was the first program I launched and in 6 classes had over 300 women learn body acceptance. Based on their feedback and experience, I enhanced the course to make it more powerful. The very best of the More To Love Class is brought into BCC with even more enhancements.
I'M REALLY BUSY . . . WHAT'S REQUIRED OF ME?
OMG, you can totally take the class even if you're busy! It's designed to work with your daily schedule. Essentially, you get out what you put in and this is very true for all of More to Love's work. Do what you can because even a little bit helps. Regarding requirements, you’re required to give yourself permission and be open to learning something new about yourself and sharing it with others. You’re guaranteed to see your body in a more loving, proud way as well as pinpoint some trouble areas that are keeping you from accepting yourself right now.
IS THERE A LIVE CALL INVOLVED?
Nope, only recorded audio.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The BCC is US$97.00. This is priced competitively to other programs, but I can tell you my course delivers far beyond what other similar programs claim. I have extensive training and credentialing in this field and I want to make sure my work reaches are many people as possible. If you have strong feelings about the price, it might be helpful to re-frame it as "How much am I willing to invest in my self?" - regardless of if you join, that question alone might spark some big ah-ha's for you.
THIS SOUNDS AWESOME, WHEN DO I HAVE TO REGISTER BY?
Anytime enrollment opens and until the third day of class. But honestly, the sooner, the better, because the classes in the Facebook group will be open for business a few days before kick-off, so you'll want to be there for that as well as attend the live call (if you can.)
