    So here we are the final episode of season one! Inspired by Barack Obama I open up about what it's like to be an anti-racist educator, black woman, and soon-to-be author in unprecedented times like these.
    I delve deep into the heaviness of reliving racist trauma and the triggering events from the past and the very recent, talk about how we can ALL instigate change in ourselves and others without resorting to dehumanising behaviour. And I share some deeply personal stories that came to me after watching Barack Obama giving the eulogy of activist John Lewis.

    In this episode I talk to Natalie, an educational psychologist, mum of two and one of my anti-racism students.
    Natalie and I had an incredibly raw and vulnerable conversation about her anti-racism journey and she shares her experience of being in an interracial relationship with two mixed heritage children while also working in education.
    This is a really truthful conversation about how to become an ally beyond performative action. Natalie generously opens up about her journey, leaning into the messiness of anti racist work and imploring her fellow white folk to do the same.

    No Mud, No Lotus: Dismantling White Supremacy in Yoga and Collective Healing | Jonelle Lewis

    No Mud, No Lotus: Dismantling White Supremacy in Yoga and Collective Healing | Jonelle Lewis

    In this episode I talk to Jonelle Lewis, a mother and incredible yoga teacher smashing stereotypes.

    Jonelle and I met at an event on International Women's Day a few years ago and have been friends ever since. She is a force of nature who doesn't mince her words and speaks truth about white supremacy in the wellness industry. 

    Jonelle's experience of dealing with racism in the wellness industry is such an important lesson. Despite the noise, Jonelle listened to the small voice calling her to teach, went to India to train and has been teaching yoga in person and online ever since. 

    We talk about her experience as a black woman with boobs and butt in yoga, how she's cultivated resilience from dealing with white supremacy, and she shares the wisdom and fire that makes her such a powerful soul. 

    In the episode we also discuss: 

    - How Jonelle was called to teach yoga
    - Violence in the wellness industry 
    - Her experience at Howard University (which is an all black university in the U.S) 
    - The importance of seeing Anti-Racism work as the healing work it is
    - Decolonising the wellness industry
