    What does it mean to listen to your body? | Trisha Durham

    What does it mean to listen to your body? | Trisha Durham

    In this episode, Nikki chats with yoga teacher and educator Trisha Durham about the idea of listening to your body and why without context, it often isn't very helpful. They discuss:
    How this has become an overused statement in many yoga, Pilates, and fitness classes and alternative cues that may be less confusing for students Why there is no one size fits all approach to yoga or fitness The value of personal agency and how you can invite more of it into your classes or movement practice Why you don't have to suffer for something to be effective Connect with Trisha

    On self trust and knowing where to look for help | Isabelle Barter

    On self trust and knowing where to look for help | Isabelle Barter

    In this episode, Nikki chats with strength and brain based fitness coach Isabelle Barter about why it's important to find the right medical or fitness professionals to help you and why you shouldn't always believe the stories that someone else tells you about your body.
    They discuss:
    Why you should find physical therapists and wellness practitioners who understand your experience and the context of the activities that you want to return to if you have pain How medical and wellness providers can't predict the future, so if what they are saying doesn't sit well with you, it's valuable to find a second opinion Their own positive and negative experiences trying to get treatment for pain and injuries Why these narratives around exercise being dangerous are often more harmful than the injuries themselves The negative and positive impacts of being delivered a diagnosis What to look for when trying to find someone to help you rehab pain or an injury Connect with Isabelle

    The Truth About Training Like an Athlete | Anna Hartman

    The Truth About Training Like an Athlete | Anna Hartman

    In this episode, Nikki chats with athletic trainer Anna Hartman about what it actually looks like to train like a professional athlete and why this idea doesn't typically align with what you need if this is not you profession. They discuss:
    What a professional athlete's day and workouts look like and what Anna helps them prioritize when they see her. How professional athletes often have to make trade offs where they potentially sacrifice their long term health for shorter term performance. The discrepancy between the marketing messaging of "training like an athlete" and the reality of what it means to move and perform well. Why rest, recovery, and a sense of safety are required for performance, injury prevention, and overall health + how the nervous system creates the conditions for this. Connect with Anna

    Self-Kindness and Escaping the "Should" Mindset | Erica Webb

    In this episode Nikki chats with Pilates, yoga, and somatics teacher Erica Webb about what it means to foster self-kindness and how to escape the "should" mindset.
    They discuss:
    What it means to be kind or honest with yourself and why this practice is often difficult and uncomfortable Why it's so hard to take action towards the things that you want and strategies for moving beyond this roadblock How to reframe your "shoulds" into self talk that is more productive and less based in guilt in shame Toxic positivity and why the yoga every damn day mentality isn't sustainable or helpful Connect with Erica

Refreshing authenticity

Nikki has excellent guests and out of the fitness pop box conversations. I appreciate her boldness and transparency.

Taking us out of our comfort zone

Nikki gets real and opens that communication for those of us that are needing the voice of advocacy in the Pilates industry. I listened to episode 35 today because I saw the guest, Beth! I respect Beth’s teachings in Pilates and her workshop, Trauma Informed Pilates. Finally, opening our eyes to looking inside of ourselves as instructors to re-evaluate our approach in teaching.
