This week on Unpacked we are chatting with Mel Cornforth, Founder and Owner of The Movement by Mel. Mel has trained in dance fitness and leads choreography-based classes. Mel shares her story of training to be a nurse and becoming a mom Mel found herself in search for more. After years of struggling to accept her body, navigating the identity change of becoming a mom and feeling like her nursing career wasn’t as fulfilling anymore she took a leap to start the Movement. We talk entrepreneurship, motherhood, body positivity and how the Movement has become a space to heal body, mind and soul. The Movement started as a way for me to connect with others through movement, music, and conversation. A way to grow a community that values authentic connection, vulnerability, growth, and all that is this life. It’s repetitive choreography set to songs that combine fitness and creating meaningful connections with yourselves.
