    7: S4,ep7: Estelle Nyabuhinja on The Importance of Variety in Movement and Life

    7: S4,ep7: Estelle Nyabuhinja on The Importance of Variety in Movement and Life

    In the final episode of Create Shift season 4 I talk with yoga teacher and mind and body coach Estelle Nyabuhinja of Pop Up Yoga Milano. I met Estelle when we both took Laurel Beversdorf's Yoga with Resistance Bands Teacher Training at Hot Yoga Dublin in May 2019. In this conversation Estelle shares the same curiosity, inquisitiveness about movement practice and insightful views on what holistic living is that made me want to have her on the podcast. We discuss how our movement changes instinctively with the seasons and Estelle shares how she took the Summer off this year (in true European style) and the benefits this has had on her mind, wellbeing and teaching practice. Estelle discusses the work she does, and beautifully describes a yoga event she did a museum in Milan. This event was so much more than just yoga and to me truly embodies what holistic living is all about.  (http://being-change.com/create-shift-s4ep2-what-is-holistic-living/)

    5: Create Shift S4,ep5: Food Waste Facts and Solutions with Open Kitchen MCR

    5: Create Shift S4,ep5: Food Waste Facts and Solutions with Open Kitchen MCR

    Food waste is a huge problem within the Western world with over one third of all food produced globally going to waste. Open Kitchen MCR is a social enterprise here in Manchester working to do their bit to help combat this issue. In Create Shift S4,ep5 I chat with Steph Lynch-Ozamar who is the Communications and Campaigns Manager for Open Kitchen MCR. We chat about the work they do and how they do it and I learn what gleaning is and how many millions (!) of bananas go to waste t a household level every day. If you listened to my solo episode on What is Holistic Living you'll know I'm really passionate about holistic living being more than aromatherapy, candles and yoga asana. To me holistic living has a lot to do with being connected to others and the world around us, and doing what we can to make that a better place. So, it's important to me that we learn about organisations such as Open Kitchen MCR and support them if and how we can. I hope  you enjoy the episode.

    3: S4,ep3 Laurel Beversdorf On the Role of Movement in our Lives

    3: S4,ep3 Laurel Beversdorf On the Role of Movement in our Lives

    In Create Shift S4,ep3 I talk to yoga teacher and movement educator Laurel Beversdorf. I wanted to bring Laurel on the podcast as I think she's a really interesting voice on yoga, movement and the roles they play in our lives. We talk about yoga, movement, exercise and how the roles that these play in our lives especially in Western individualistic society. This is a great listen for anybody, but also for anyone working within movement (not just yoga teachers). I hope that, in listening to this episode, your curiosity will be raised and you'll have lots of questions spinning around in your mind.
