Our bodies are wise. They know when we are hungry, or tired. They know and respond when we are sad. They give us lots of other signals, too, if we are paying attention. Your body can give you clues about your deep desires, can hold and release traumas, can be the vessels of memory, and joy.
To kick off Season 2 of the Nurturing Habit podcast, I’m talking with Sarah Silvas, a life coach, yoga and Qoya teacher. In this episode, we talk about what self care is (and is not), how being deeply connected to our bodies is a root of wisdom, and we talk about our shared story of loving dance as children, quitting it, and then finding it again as adults.
