In this episode, I’m joined by yoga teacher & psychotherapist, Gretchen Suarez. Gretchen has been my Ashtanga yoga teacher for almost three years, and she’s been integral to helping me grow personally through yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and disidentifying from my thoughts. Doing the work of being awakened & aware isn’t easy, but is imperative in creating a foundation of self-love, facilitating our healing, alleviating suffering, and being comfortable in our own skin (without running from ourselves). If you are curious about this work (or are a human!), this episode is for you!
Like Gretchen says in the episode, getting into our bodies and feeling the full spectrum of emotions is a tool to see who we really are, because “there’s a whole world waiting for you to look at”.

We cannot make sustainable change with food, our bodies, or our surrounding habits until we honestly explore and get curious about our relationship with each of them. Mindset change is not easy, but so, so worth it.
Being healthy starts with learning to cook simple foods in easy, delicious ways with approachable and practical recipes and techniques.
Our health begins with properly nourishing our bodies with nutrient-dense foods. I believe in bio-individuality: each person requires different types and amounts of food to feel their best. Learn how to eat intuitively for the rest of your life!
