The dreaded quarter life crisis...have you ever had one? I most certainly did and I can assure you that this blog would never exist if I hadn't had one. Silver lining? In today's episode, we're welcoming Kali Rogers from Blush Life Coaching to talk about the quarter life crisis and how to navigate it if you feel like you're having one. 

What I love about Kali is that she always keeps it real. This isn't some mumbo jumbo "go after your dreams" speech - it's real, effective strategies to navigate a very stressful period in your life. Usually these periods are just bumpy transitions, but it certainly helps to have someone holding your hand as you make your way to other side. 

In this week's episode, we hear how Kali got started in the life coaching world and how to identify if you're having a quarter-life crisis. And even if you aren't, I think this episode will be helpful to anyone going through a transition phase. Because life certainly isn't stagnant so we all have that to relate to. 

Here are just a few of the things we discussed:

  • Kali's journey and how she got started in life coaching
  • What is a quarter-life crisis and who can have one?
  • How to navigate those transitions when you don't know what direction to go in
  • Do we all need a side hustle and if so, should it be our career?
  • What is a life coach and do they actually help?
  • How to ignore what is happening around you and focus on your journey
  • The one health habit Kali can't live without

Welcome back to to Episode #33 of That's So Maven! After a 5 day trip to NYC, I'm so happy to be back home and continuing to interview some incredible humans making waves in the wellness community. Today's guest, Jessamyn Stanley is no exception. 

From Jessamyn's bio: "Jessamyn Stanley is a yoga teacher, body positivity advocate, and writer based in Durham, North Carolina. Jessamyn uses high energy vinyasa flow as a way to move past mental and emotional barriers. Her classes provide a body positive approach to yoga which celebrates students' bodies and encourages them to ask 'How do I feel?' rather than 'How do I look?' when practicing yoga."

This perfectly sums up Jessamyn and exactly the message she is advocating for. It was such a pleasure to talk with her and breakdown the prejudice that exists in the yoga community and beyond. 

Here are just a few of the things we discussed: 

  • Jessamyn's journey and how she discovered yoga
  • Why she thinks there is a lack of body diversity in the yoga community
  • Body image and how she learned to accept her body
  • Is the word "fat" derogatory and if not, can we use it?
  • How we define health and if you can be healthy and fat
  • The prejudice that exists in the health and wellness commmunity
  • Advice for people who feel discriminated against for their body size

Thank you all so much for your kind words on last week's return of the podcast! It felt so nice to take a break and I'm feeling better than ever about the kick-off of this season. It certainly helps to have an epic lineup of guests, including this week's lady on the hot seat, Sahara Rose.

 Now I'm not entirely sure how I feel about manifestation, but it seems to be that when I think and talk a lot about wanting to have a certain guest on the podcast, it comes to fruition. I'm kind of an Ayurveda geek, but I have so much more to learn. As a result, I knew I wanted to bring on an Ayurvedic expert to let me pick their brain on the show. 

In this week's episode, we cover a lot of ground. But what I love most is how grounded Sahara is making her able to communicate what Ayurveda means within the context of our world. She's taking an ancient tradition and showing us how we can apply it to our everyday lives and that is something I can get down with. 

 

Here are just a few of the things we discussed:

  • Sahara's own health journey and struggles with allergies and asthma as a kid
  • How she discovered Ayurveda through yoga
  • Why she decided to adopt Ayurvedic practices in her life
  • What is Ayurveda and how it started in Ancient India
  • What is a dosha and how do you figure out your dosha?
  • What does it mean to balance your dosha?
  • Can you integrate Ayurveda with Western medicine?

Items and people mentioned in the episode:

After a two-month break, the podcast is BACK and I could not be more excited! The time off really allowed me to catch my breath, journal, and reflect on my core values that I strive to incorporate into all of the content I continue to create for you. And I find it so fitting that many of these themes come up in this first episode back. 

 

For those of you who have been following The Healthy Maven for awhile now, you know I am a HUGE fan of Barre3 and the company's founder, Sadie Lincoln. I love how Barre3 advocates for listening to your body and practicing intuitive movement -  a message that has really resonated with me as my relationship with exercise has evolved over the past several years. Sadie is someone I have admired both as a businesswomen and as a leading voice for intuitive living and body love, and I've been dying to have her on the show!

Here's what we chatted about: 

  • Her unconventional upbringing as a "hippie" kid
  • How she fell into the fitness industry and discovered her love of group exercise
  • The role of intuition in shaping her career path as an entrepreneur
  • The importance of slowing down, and how this idea plays a role in both her professional and personal lives
  • Sadie's toolbox of self-care practices
  • Her thoughts on developing and modeling a healthy relationship with social media
  • Using the power of education to maintain Barre3's key messages across a franchise model 
  • How she's navigated through the traditional fitness marketing cycle to find her authentic path
  • The one health habit she can't live without
  • Sadie's advice to her 20-year-old self
