156. "How human of me" with Giselle Shardlow Anxiety Warriors Podcast

    • Mental Health

"Life is a balance of holding on and letting go." -Rumi

On today's episode Abby and Margot welcome their next guest, Giselle Shardlow. Giselle is a former classroom educator and trained yoga professional. She's the founder of Kids Yoga Stories, a company dedicated to creating valuable resources to bring yoga to kids everywhere and much more. Her story is largely about how she's framed her anxiety into two parts. The first from before she became a Mom and the second from after. Growing up she was labeled as a worry wort or "overly sensitive", but didn't know she'd been anxious until years later. Her story journey's from her early adult years when she was a world traveler and teacher in Guatemala, to what it was like many years later in young motherhood coping with her daughters struggles with anxiety and other needs and how these experiences (and how she related to them) felt different in mind and body. Giselle offers the Warriors a myriad of useful tools and modalities for approaching care, compassion and support for her anxiety. With countless moments of warmth and wisdom, she reminds listeners about the beauty of humanity and how with a bit more effort and surrender... we can all overcome life's obstacles with more ease.



Here are some books mentioned in our chat:
