To be honest, I went into today's episode with Fern Olivia with somewhat of an expectation. I knew we'd talk about Thyroid Yoga and how to support our thyroid health, but what I got in return was so much more. As you guys know, I completed Yoga Teacher Training last spring and have begun my journey of teaching yoga. It has been a STEEP learning curve (if you think yoga teaching is easy - well I urge you to give it a try!) and one that left me with a lot of knowledge but an equal amount of questions. Fern must have picked up on this because the conversation that ensued both inspired and equipped me to be a better yoga teacher. I left our convo feeling amped up and eager to see this next chapter through.

Of course, if you're not on a journey to teaching yoga, this episode is still relevant for you! We chat about Fern's decision to move to a blue zone and pursue her dreams as well as how to support your thyroid holistically among many other things.

Here are a few things we discuss in today's episode:

  • How Fern got sick and changed her entire life course through yoga
  • Her thyroid condition and how she learned to care for her thyroid holistically
  • The hustle culture of yoga and how she learned to live in the flow instead
  • 5th chakra healing and how it affects your thyroid
  • Identifying your dharma and following through with it
  • What Thyroid yoga is and how to use yoga to support your thyroid
  • Pursuing a career in yoga and how to find empowerment in your teaching
  • How she ended up moving to Costa Rica and what her life looks like now
  • The one health habit she can't live without (I love her answer!)

I was so excited to hear your response to the return of Season 4! We definitely kicked things off with a bang in Episode #71 with dosist. I so appreciate your openness to learning about new topics that carry some stigma. I truly do have the best tribe!

Today's episode is equally as interesting and important. I'm chatting with Kelsey Miller, an anti-diet writer and body positivity activist. She is well known for her writing on Refinery 29's Anti-Diet Project and her memoir, Big Girl. She's also been working on her newest book, a pop-culture look at everyone's favorite TV show, Friends.

Not only is Kelsey incredibly knowledgeable in helping us navigate our diet-focused culture, but her story in and of itself is inspiring. I'm so excited to welcome Kelsey Miller to the show today.

Here are a few things we discuss in today's episode:

  • Kelsey's upbringing and how she got caught in the diet-binge cycle
  • Growing up in diet culture and if and how things have changed
  • The history of diet culture and diet fads
  • Why all diets inevitably fail
  • Her wake-up call and when she finally realized she didn't want to be caught in the diet cycle
  • Kelsey's thoughts on Intuitive Eating and what it really means to embrace IE
  • "Clean" eating and why it's still a diet and the dangers of the wellness space
  • The difference between dieting to manipulate your body and chronic illness
  • Getting married and the dieting culture that permeates it
  • Her new book and why she chose to write about friends

Episode 27 with Bess Matassa from Mojave Rising

Mission Loft in San Francisco 

Any great season requires a great kick-off episode and I could not be more excited to share today's LIVE podcast recording with dosist. A few weeks ago in SF, a group of 25 of us gathered in the most beautiful home (hi Mission Loft!) for an evening of community, conversation and cannabis. Yes, you read that correctly: cannabis. This isn't a new topic to the show, but given that more and more states and countries are legalizing the plant, I felt it was due time to dive deeper into the topic and answer all of your questions - and mine!

On today's episode, we welcome Claire Anderson, the field marketing manager for dosist to the show to answer all of your questions about cannabis, how it's actually good for you and tips for getting started if you've never used cannabis before.

Here are some other things we chatted about:

  • Claire's background and all about dosist
  • What is the cannabis plant and how is it good for your health?
  • Why has cannabis gotten a bad rap?
  • What are tips for discovering or rediscovering cannabis?
  • What is the difference between CBD and THC? How about Indica and Sativa?
  • Different methods of consumption and how dosist is different
  • What are terpenes and can they be beneficial?
  • What Claire thinks is coming next in the Cannabis Space.
