About The Movement


Founded by Taryn Brumfitt in 2012, the Body Image Movement is on a mission to help people Embrace their bodies. From award-winning documentaries and books to speaking events and educational resources, we take evidence-based insights and turn them into content that is inspirational, engaging and fun!

Body Image Movement HQ is located in Adelaide, Australia. From our home base ‘down under’, we are spreading the life-changing message of Embrace to millions of people in every pocket of the globe.

Our growing community of ‘Embracers’ mean everything to us and the success of our cause, and it is our privilege to be of service to those that are creating a ripple of positive change across the world. A true global movement has begun…
