    31. How to find your own medicine for the soul with Heather Lilleston

    Welcome to this week's episode with Heather Lilleston, founder of Yoga for Bad People, Yoga trainer and teacher and host of wellness retreats globally. I first met Heather in Mexico and she has stayed a close friend and mentor since our first encounter. Heather observes the world and reflects on human behaviour and cultural forces in a way that extracts wisdom and teaching that leaves you thinking for hours after. I hope you enjoy this episode where we discuss what it means to find your own medicine for the soul, what yoga actually is and how we can redefine success to live a happier life.

    A little bit about the NOT PERFECT podcast. Thank you for reading this and thank you for being here. The intention for this podcast is to share conversations on the subjects that can nurture our life from the inside. Just like physical exercise takes work and commitment, I believe our emotional health requires the same attention. Life throws curve balls unexpectedly and these can feel much more manageable when we know more about our mind. I hope these episodes are helpful in sharing tools, tips and insights into our brilliant hardware that can feel faulty but always fixable. I would love to hear from you if you have any feedback or guest suggestions, please find me on instagram @poppyjamie and @happynotperfect.

    30. Your body has the answers your looking for with Dr Christiane Northrup

    30. Your body has the answers your looking for with Dr Christiane Northrup

    On today's show I have Dr Christiane Northrup, an author, doctor and complete inspiration who has shaped my life since I first read her books when I was a teenager. Dr Northrup pioneered a movement for over 40 years educating millions around the world about uniting the mind, body, emotions and spirit. Today, we are talking about her New York Times best-selling book, Women’s Bodies, Women’s wisdom which was first released in 1994 and is now being re-released having been updated. IT IS A BIBLE TO YOUR HEALTH, LINK BELOW, COULD NOT RECOMMEND MORE!


    During the interview we talk about mindset, the problems around vaccination and current protocol in the medical field and finish talking about mental health.


    Find Dr Christiane's book here: https://www.drnorthrup.com
    Follow Dr Christiane Northrup here: https://twitter.com/drchrisnorthrup


    The world is finally catching up to what Dr Northrup was telling the medical profession 20 years ago. Human beings need to be treated as a whole as our whole health interlinks. Our thoughts are as important as our heart as our gynaecology. On behalf of all women everywhere, thank you for disrupting the conversation in the way you have over the past decades. I hope you all enjoy our chat!

    27: How to harness the power of your mind for change with Dr Rick Hanson

    27: How to harness the power of your mind for change with Dr Rick Hanson

    On today’s show I have a true idol of mine, the psychologist and New York Times Best Selling author Dr Rick Hanson. He has been a true leader in the entire positive neuroscience movement and I have spent years reading his books (Hardwiring Happiness, Resilient, Buddha’s brain, Just one thing and his latest Neurodharma). 


    I couldn’t recommend his work more! We speak about whether science and spirituality can exist together, what positive neuro-plasticity is and how this discovery proves no one needs to feel stuck and that change is always possible. We talk about practices that can help us develop inner strengths, gain resilience and live happier. Rick shares wisdom, decades of research and simple tools to help us enjoy life more and focus on the things that make us smile. 


    Please find more info on Rick here and links to buy his books: https://www.rickhanson.net/books/neurodharma/

    26: Why should you take a DNA test? The next step in wellness.

    26: Why should you take a DNA test? The next step in wellness.

    To celebrate National DNA day this week, today’s episode is all about DNA and genetics as I interview former Olympic medalist and founding team member of the award winning Circle DNA, Andrew Steele. Why should we test? What is DNA? Why does it matter? All these questions are answered. We discuss all things genetic, genome, epigenetics, nature nurture debate, personalized wellness and more. Andrew shares his story about why he moved away from professional sports to now pioneering at home DNA testing. I love Circle DNA as it's finally democratizing DNA testing and making something that was so out of reach accessible for all and affordable. 


    You can find more information about Circle DNA here: https://circledna.com/en-gb/
