SHAPE center is a collective of size-affirming, weight-inclusive practitioners dedicated to the health and well-being of people of all sizes. SHAPE stands for Size-affirmative Health, Advocacy, Practice, and Education.
SHAPE center is a collective of size-affirming, weight-inclusive practitioners dedicated to the health and well-being of people all sizes. We practice body acceptance and diversity, and welcome every size, gender, gender expression and identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, and more. SHAPE was founded by Krista Handfield, a Heath at Every Size® practitioner and Health Equity professional, who recognizes the evidence that a persons size or weight is NOT an indicator of health, and that people of all sizes and body types deserve the opportunity to care for their health and wellness without discrimination or the expectation to change their body.
Weight-inclusive practitioners include therapist, life coaches, medical professionals, yoga instructors, nutritionists, acupuncturist, etc.
