Love Your Body

Shift Your Relationship with Your Body for Good

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Are you willing to explore the terrain of your own heart? Imagine how much time and energy you would save if you and your body were on the same team instead of fighting against each other.

Changing your relationship with your body starts with kindness. Sadly, more than 90% of women think there is something wrong with their body. We spend hours, days, and thousands of thoughts giving ourselves a hard time for what we look like, how we eat, and how much (or little) we exercise.

Join Kimber Simpkins—author of Full: How I Learned to Satisfy My Insatiable Hunger and Feed My Soul—for a week of transformational practices to help you love your body in ways you never imagined possible. Through the healing practices of yoga, Buddhist meditation, and reevaluating your underlying beliefs, you will learn to:

  • Let go of negativity around your appearance
  • Befriend your body
  • Counteract negative media messages
  • Nourish yourself with mindfulness and love
  • Create new habits of self-care
  • Set boundaries based on self-respect.

Surrounded by a community of support, you will begin to disarm your inner critic and transform self-discipline into self-love. You will emerge inspired to transform how you relate to your body—an approach that will benefit not only you but also the world around you.

Faculty Bio

Kimber Simpkins

Kimber Simpkins, a former civil rights lawyer, is a yoga teacher and the author of Full: How I Learned to Satisfy My Insatiable Hunger and Feed My Soul.

Sick of dieting, she had decided to get to the bottom of her hunger and her unhappy relationship with her body; the teachings of yoga and meditation showed her the way.

Kimber comes from a long line of lay preachers, teachers, singers, and healers. She blends these roles with the wisdom of Buddhist and Tantric philosophy and the insights of physics, psychology, and storytelling in her work. Kimber teaches weekly classes, Love Your Body workshops, and yoga retreats and is a devoted supporter of the Health At Every Size movement, welcoming students of all sizes and levels into her classes.

Her latest book, 52 Ways to Love Your Body, is full of simple practices to treat yourself with more love every day.
