You see, MerryBody began with just us, Carla and Emma… but it has always been so much bigger than us.
It felt bigger, it was beyond us… really it felt like some kind of magic and it was on this day we saw the magic… in action, right in front of our eyes.
We always say the magic of MerryBody is that it’s movement driven by self-acceptance, self-respect and joy. But as you can see from these 3 minutes, the real magic of MerryBody is the people. The members, the community. This day was unlike any other.
The word to describe it: AMAZING.
We want to thank each and every one of these strong and beautiful (inside and out) women for coming together and being part of it all. A day to capture the backbone of MerryBody, the mission of everything we do.
This quick video is a Behind The Scenes look at the day we spent with these amazing women… we had fun!
Choosing MerryBody is a declaration to yourself and your body.
It’s you giving yourself permission to experience joy with your body and from your body.
MerryBody is about letting go of all the shame and negativity you have ever felt toward your body.
Perhaps you’ve felt it in those moments while staring at your body in the mirror, or trying on jeans, or when heading to the beach…
MerryBody is about celebrating this one body you have that takes you on life’s journey!
It’s acknowledging just how much this body has given you.
It’s given you life, it’s got you through your hardest days and allowed you to experience your best moments.
Your body is not an object to be judged.
Your body is not here for the enjoyment and use of other people.
Your body is yours and it is worthy of the greatest love and respect… from YOU. No matter what it looks like.
Through our experience of exercise/diet obsession and from our time spent focused on that forever elusive goal of the ‘perfect body’ (this does not exist FYI) this all feels so good.
Really, choosing MerryBody is like giving a big ‘up yours’ to Diet Culture.
Members use MerryBody as their daily reminder. It’s the anchor to the feeling of self-acceptance.
The reminder of their enoughness.
It’s our reminder too!
Because… if you are anything like us you spent most of your life hating your body and that hate doesn’t always just switch off.
BUT now we have the lessons, we have the awareness and the actions, we have all that we need to come back to the TRUTH!
The truth that you are amazing, we are amazing… just as we all are, right here, right now.
So, be sure of this… when you become a part of MerryBody, you will experience something quite different.
A revolutionary way of moving your body that doesn’t remind you of what you lack… it reminds you of the amazingness already within.
MerryBody is your daily reminder, that right here, right now, you are 1000 times enough… just as you are.
The only thing that needs to change is the fact that you forgot this.
