Accepting the Body You Have Now with Anna Guest-Jelley

Anna Guest-Jelley is the founder of Curvy Yoga, an online yoga studio and teacher training center that helps people of all shapes and sizes find true acceptance and freedom, both on and off the mat. In today’s episode Anna touches upon so many of my favorite topics – including how accepting our bodies is not in fact the death sentence so many of us worry that it might be, but instead is a pathway towards greater levels of growth grounded in self-love. I have been lucky to have known Anna since the very inception of Curvy Yoga, and I never cease to be inspired by her gentle, kind, and deeply powerful approach to accepting the body that you are in right now.

On Being Needy: Lisa Lewis Interviews Mara Glatzel

The more that I take ownership of meeting my own needs, the less "needy" I am for external validation or for someone else to swoop in and save me from myself. 

In today's episode, career change coach Lisa Lewis turns the tables by interviewing me about my relationship with my needs, reclaiming the concept of what it means to be "needy," and the personal power generated when we take responsibility for caring for ourselves as if we are deserving of our care.

You Are Not (Just) A Complicated Houseplant

Perhaps you've seen some variation of the meme telling you to get some water, food, and sunlight, because you are little more than a complicated plant. And, one one hand that concept is totally spot on, but on the other... you, being delightfully human, require more than water, food, and sunlight in order to feel TRULY fulfilled and nourished.

In today's episode, I explore what a need actually is, how you can figure out what you need, and where to focus your self-care right this second.

Motherhood & Self-care with Graeme Seabrook

In today's episode I am joined by motherhood life coaching Graeme Seabrook. I love the way that Graeme is dedicated to helping mothers reclaim their humanity. She does this work because she believes we are living in a global culture that treats mothers as if we are inhuman, and expects us to be superhuman.

Graeme’s work is founded in the belief that you need to be the priority of your own life in order to thrive. Following a traumatizing birth experience and postpartum depression, anxiety and PTSD, Graeme began a healing journey as a mother and a woman. Graeme's unapologetic take on self-care is refreshing, tangible, and deeply restorative, and I'm so excited to share her brilliance with all of you.
