Meet Your Instructors
Connie Sobczak and Elizabeth Scott, MSW, founded The Body Positive because of their shared passion to create a lively, healing community that offers freedom from suffocating societal messages that keep people in a perpetual struggle with their bodies. In 2015, Connie and Elizabeth were chosen by La Repubblica, Italy’s leading newspaper, to be on their top 10 list of badass women for their role in founding The Body Positive movement.
Connie Sobczak is the author of Embody: Learning to Love Your Unique Body (and quiet that critical voice!), her book in which she brings the Competencies of the Be Body Positive Model to life, skillfully and lovingly reconnecting readers to their bodies, life force, and beauty. Connie’s experience with an eating disorder in her teen years and the death of her sister Stephanie inspired her life’s work to create a world where all people are free to love their bodies. She has been featured in USA Today, Media Planet, Rebellious Magazine for Women, the Lady Brain Show, the San Francisco Bay Area’s local Fox news, and more. Connie’s passion is watching the light that emerges when people recognize and embrace their magnificent, authentic selves.
Elizabeth Scott practiced psychotherapy in Marin County, California for twenty-seven years, specializing in eating disorders treatment. She refined the core Competencies of the Be Body Positive Model to be appropriate for the treatment, as well as the prevention, of eating problems. Elizabeth is passionate about her work because she believes that a healthy self-image is an essential aspect of a person’s development. She credits her mother Lynn, a feminist therapist, for communicating a positive message about women’s bodies that allowed her to grow up with an abundance of self-love. Elizabeth’s discovery of African dance as a teenager and her exploration of improvisational dance throughout her life sustain her great appreciation for her body and its capacity to express pleasure and vitality.
