It's time to embrace your body, whether you are a size 2 or a size 16. Yoga class can be the place to start. Some girls don't have the barriers of body-image issues holding them back from stripping down, but for some of us it can be crippling. Here are 10 reasons you should take your shirt off in your next yoga class: #1 It's a lesson in letting go. Letting go of the fear of judgement, letting go of the fear of embarrassment, and letting go of whatever it is that is making you afraid. #2 It reminds you that you are more than your body. Your body is a vessel for you, but it does not define you. It is only one aspect of your self as a whole. #3 It's a stand for natural beauty. It reminds you that you are beautiful in a pure form. This is you, and you're unapologetic about it. #4 It's a part of the journey to self-love. Sporting your sports bra helps you feel confident in your own skin, and is a huge milestone if you've battled with a negative body image. #5 It's cool. It gets hot in a yoga session! Don't hide, strip down and cool down. yoga class #6 It's an act of defiance. There will be many girls envious of your self-confidence when you choose to take off your shirt, and you inspire them to work on their own self-esteem issues. #7 It becomes a movement. Once other yoga students follow your lead, you'll feel amazing about the positive impact you've had on these women. #8 You're stating what you think healthy should look like. No matter your body shape or size, you're letting the world know that it's a-ok with you! Stretch marks, love handles, freckles or belly fat, this is you. #9 It puts you in a vulnerable position. You're being open and honest with how you look. You're putting yourself in a position to be judged, and you're comfortable with that. #10 It teaches you not to take life too seriously. You can't be hung up on fear forever. Take it off! Be who you are and you will feel empowered! What are your reasons for taking off your shirt in yoga class? Source: Mind Body Green

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
