    Pranayama – Understanding Breath-work S01E10

    Pranayama – Understanding Breath-work S01E10

    MIND: In this weeks episode of The Wellness Podcast, we explore the ancient practice of pranayama. Pranayama translates to breath-work. This practice is simple, but potent as we can address underlying anxiety and sympathetic nervous responses. All it takes is 5 mins to help settle the mind, dampen down those adrenal responses, and help ground you. Prana means life force or breath sustaining the body; Ayama translates as "to extend or draw out." Together the two mean breath extension or control. Pranayama are breathing exercises which clear the physical and emotional obstacles in our body to free the breath and so the flow of prana - life energy. Through regular and sustained practice of pranayama you can supercharge your whole body! For more information check out thebarefootdoctor.com.au

    Death, Grief & Transition Part 1 S01E07

    Death, Grief & Transition Part 1 S01E07

    SPIRIT: In this weeks episode of The Wellness Podcast, we cover the topic of Death, Grief, and Transition.

    I woke up to some very sad news. My best friends partner had died after a long battle with cancer. This will shape the show. Having lost many close to me, I was always going to cover this topic, however, I had hoped it would not have been so soon.



    In this episode I share my personal journey, the way death has shaped me and the lives of those I have lost. Equally terrible, and beautiful. The art of dying is something we need to honour, to express, and to share.
