    Ep 29. Overcoming Elitism and Racism in Yoga with Dianne Bondy

    Ep 29. Overcoming Elitism and Racism in Yoga with Dianne Bondy

    The 8 limbs of yoga fundamentally support anti-racism, diversity, and body acceptance - and yet yoga in the west has been largely inaccessible to anyone who isn’t white, wealthy, thin, and able-bodied. In this episode I speak with the incredible Dianne Bondy, and she delivers truth-bombs with her characteristic vivacious spirit!

    We talk about the commodification and cultural misappropriation of yoga, performative activism, anti-racism in yoga, and ways we can decolonise yoga in the west and finally make it accessible for people who have historically been denied access to these life-affirming practices.

    Ep 26. Bonus Sample: Patriarchy and Diet Culture

    Ep 26. Bonus Sample: Patriarchy and Diet Culture

    Patriarchy seeks to control and exert power over nature generally, and the bodies of women specifically.  Beneath marketable wellness concepts like "clean eating" lie deep ties to body control, and culturally imposed shame over women’s bodies and processes like menstruation. But there is an alternative, more feminist and inclusive approach to food and our bodies that is honouring of our menstrual cycles, seasonal cycles, and different life stages.

    Ep 25. Addressing the Root Causes of Weight Gain

    Here I offer some compassion and gentle guidance to anyone who has experienced an increase in their body weight that concerns them. By taking a naturopathic, holistic and HAES-aligned approach, I want to help you get on board with your body and understand at a deep level what might be going on. Hint: it's not just about “calories in, calories out”.

    SHOW NOTES:

    07:48: What is meant by "addressing the root cause"?
    12:25: 5 reasons people gain weight that we can’t do much about – and how to make peace with and accept these
    26:40: 8 reasons why people gain weight that we could potentially address – usually involving bringing certain body systems back into balance – and the caveats of this
    57:05: Solutions! 7 things to consider when you’re a practitioner faced with a client who wants to lose weight, or if you’re that person

    Ep 24. Bonus Sample: First, Do No Harm

    Ep 24. Bonus Sample: First, Do No Harm

    There is an inherent fat phobia and weight stigma in the natural health and wellness communities. Leanness is conflated with health: we're consistently told that fat is the problem, and weight loss is the solution. But focussing on weight loss directly opposes the naturopathic principle of "first, do no harm". Here's why, and what we can do instead.
