I started TOPLESS in 2014 as a bras-on bellies-out self-confidence fitness event. This innovative and exciting event is now standing room only! Picture confident, strong women standing shoulder-to-shoulder, sweaty and empowered, with the intention to move for fun.
TOPLESS was created to inspire women to integrate radical self-acceptance into their fitness journeys. During the event, women take their tops off and expose their healthy bellies (#HealthyBellySelfie), proving that being brave enough to be strong and self-accepting is actually what makes a woman pretty, no matter what shape her body is. TOPLESS is a catalyst for women’s self-confidence, reminding us all to use our Earth Suit, our tool for physical experience, every day as a reminder that it’s just a tool and not a beauty equation.
The idea behind going topless is that women are physically and mentally stripping themselves of all of the untrue stories from the past. Over the course of the fitness event, women develop a newer, stronger, and truer appreciation for their Earth Suit and leave with the realization that they’re a miracle, just the way they are.
I have presented TOPLESS in 4 countries, at New York Fashion Week in 2015, on cruise ships, and to thousands of strong, beautiful and topless women.
I have presented Topless in 4 different countries and to thousands of people around the globe. Topless teaches men and women to #BePrettyBrave: the anthem and self-confidence call-to-action for radical self-acceptance around world. I use storytelling to teach the three most important keys to building sustainable self-confidence: begin with radical self-acceptance, practice radical honesty and be brave enough to believe that we’re perfect just the way we are.
