    Lydia Morrow is a self-taught sustainable and ethical fashion designer, specialising in underwear for all sizes and genders. She studied Painting and Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art, Lydia began making underwear as she couldn’t find bras that were stylish in her size.

    Jillian Lavender: Slowing Down For Optimum Productivity, Ayurveda + Meditation

    Jillian Lavender is the co-founder of London Meditation Centre and New York Meditation Center. She’s based in London and teaches Vedic Meditation full time and she’s also an Ayurveda expert.


    Jillian has appeared on the podcast before, but I wanted to catch up with her as I know so many of us are struggling to stay grounded during this time of social distancing and Jillian has a magical way of making me feel much calmer and centred and I think she’ll do the same for you.
