About the Workshops:
Rachel and Daxle designed this workshop series to support you in pursuing a body positive self-care practice. In these workshops, you will explore your body history, the messages you’ve received about your body, and your present relationship with your body, food, and exercise. You will also begin to create and explore a vision for the peaceful relationship you would like to have with your body in the future. You will learn about goal setting from a place of self-love, and practical self-care.
The workshops are a mixture of discussion, experiential exercises, connection, and creative activities designed to have you reflect, engage, and transform. In our sessions we strive to create a welcoming, inclusive, accessible, and safe atmosphere for all. We recognize that race, class, gender, sexuality, size, ability, privilege, and oppression all play a role in how we experience our bodies. We acknowledge this reality in our workshop series, and we hold space for having conversations about how this plays out in our lives and in our self-care visions.
The workshops are rooted in a Health at Every Size philosophy. You can learn about the HAES Principles here. Basically, though, we reject the idea that the size and shape of bodies is reflective of health. You can pursue greater health at any size, if you choose, and of course, some aspects of health are out of our control.
Our goal is to help you reconnect with your inner wisdom and gain confidence in pursuing a greater sense of ease and well-being.
About Daxle and Rachel:
Daxle is a graduate, and Rachel is a soon to be graduate, of the Health Education master’s program at John F. Kennedy University. Their education informs their workshop facilitation style and philosophy.
Daxle and Rachel both offer one-on-one health coaching in addition to workshops. Daxle’s coaching centers on intuitive eating, while Rachel’s is centered on movement and exercise. They believe in taking a holistic approach, and so their work is also centered on things like stress reduction, mindfulness, self-compassion, and body image.
Rachel and Daxle decided to collaborate on the workshop series Winter Wellness, and because that was so successful, they decided to do it again, under the name Radical Self-Care.
