From Overcoming a Rare Cancer Diagnosis & Losing 50lbs to Cohosting the Courageous Wellness Podcast; Aly French and Erica Stein Talk: Buddhism, Stress Management, Nutrition and Wellness Accessibility Solo 2.0

    • Health & Fitness

This week, Rye and Jess sit down with fellow LA podcasters and best friends, Aly French and Erica Stein of the Courageous Wellness podcast.

Erica is a director, producer, writer, and wellness enthusiast whose health journey began after a 50 pound weight loss that propelled her onto the road to self-love. While Aly is a performing artist, talent manager and host, whose work has taken her around the world. As a performer, Aly was always interested in how to fuel her body properly, but it wasn't until she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that her wellness journey was truly ignited and her passion for nutrition took on an entirely new meaning!

Today, both Aly and Erica are certified holistic health coaches via the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and come together on their podcast to share real health & wellness journeys from guests with courageous stories like their own! 

In this episode we talk about:


How Erica and Aly met through their Buddhist practice and the origins of the religion
Erica's experience growing up Buddhist, and how chanting is a form of daily self-care (+ she chants on air)
Aly’s religious evolution from Catholic home to joining Christian groups in college, to forging her own path through Buddhism
The power of community to support us through difficult times
Aly's life as a performing artist and how her cancer diagnosis at 29 impacted her life and her relationship with mind, body and spirit!
Erica's weight loss journey and the steps she took to love herself from the inside out, after years of body dysmorphia and emotional eating
The powerful mantra that sparked Erica’s healing journey
How they balance multiple jobs with the podcast
Their mission to help others get healthy and happy and make access to food and wellness more accessible in this country
What they're both excited about in their personal and professional lives and what's next for Courageous Wellness!

PLUS Jess & Rye share their top stress-busting tips and techniques in the intro to the episode!
