podcast Mar 25, 2020

Hello friends! How are you? If you’re listening to this episode later, it’s airing end of March 2020, right in the middle of this CORVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. 

I live in Oregon where we are currently under a stay at home order, but we’ve been self quarantined for a couple of weeks already with plenty more ahead of us.

Episode 18: Agnes Kowalski and Money Mindset

podcast Mar 18, 2020

We are moving into a Thriving Business Series on the podcast. I love a good theme and the next few interviews are going to be just that! Many of us find that after our training we are released into this business world feeling ill-equipped and overwhelmed. Wait, not only do I need to know how to serve my clients as a birth worker, but now I need to be an expert in marketing, finances, taxes, social media, web development and more. It’s enough to make someone throw in the towel from...

I originally found Katy’s work about 8-9 years ago. I found her through one of her blog posts about squatting. The way she approached movement in a big picture way really resonated with me. But I didn’t think a lot of it, it was back when...

Episode 15: Movement Stress & Trauma Part 1

podcast Feb 26, 2020

Today I’m super excited because I get to talk to you about one of the things I love most in the whole world, movement for stress reduction! That’s right! Most of the time when we talk about exercise, most people associate it with a list of ‘shoulds’, something on their list they’re not doing and feel like they should be, something they’re not doing enough of or any of, something that doesn’t fit into their lives and because of that they are somehow...

In today's episode I get to interview the amazing Lisa Hendrickson-Jack about a subject that’s discussed less often and highly misunderstood  and is a a highly charged subject for women’s reproductive health. We discuss using fertility awareness for either preventing pregnancy or using it to get pregnant! There are SO many different misunderstandings and so much empowering science to back up this strategy, I don’t want to give too much away, but I love diving into the...

Episode 11: One Practice to Start Thriving

podcast Jan 29, 2020

My journey towards healing and moving from surviving to thriving actually started in my mind. Perceived authorities and assumptions can strongly affect our beliefs and our views of reality. Over time we can become confined and limited by our unquestioned and subtle beliefs. It’s so important that we take the time to slow down to analyze and question them by looking at the “story I tell myself” about various parts of life. Join me as a share insights and anecdotes from my...
