31: Embracing and Empowering Yourself
Ivy Felicia combines compassion and commitment to supporting women of all sizes in making peace with their bodies at any size. The Certified Holistic Wellness Coach and Body Image Expert focuses on highly individualized, sustainable lifestyle design plans that help her clients develop wellness habits without body shame or body bullying. Her unique program, Body Relationship Coaching™ stems from her personal journey from body hate to body peace after learning to navigate the challenges of living with chronic illness and being a woman of size.
She is passionate about helping people learn to embrace the body that they have right now. She knows that the idea of embracing one’s body can feel challenging and maybe even impossible. With all of the media and messages telling us why we need to change and pointing out our faults, it isn’t always easy to feel comfortable in our own skin.
Ivy uses simple strategies, mindful accountability techniques, intuitive listening, and her ongoing training to facilitate the shifts in mindset and strategy that help people achieve long-term, positive changes in their relationship with their body.
Her active memberships in The International Association of Health Coaches and The Association for Size Diversity and Health help her stay attuned to the pulse of the primary obstacles to body love and acceptance. This ongoing awareness of the emotional wellness challenges in body acceptance drives Ivy toward changing the face of wellness from skewed social standards to love and appreciation-based lifestyle choices for people of all sizes.
