    Why mobility training is an essential mind-body practice, with Angela Metrou, CPT

    Why mobility training is an essential mind-body practice, with Angela Metrou, CPT

    When you think about exercise, what moves you? Maybe you want to drop a pants size or tone up your arms. But movement isn't just about looking better - it's about staying active and vital for our entire lives. And it all beings with mobility: where flexibility, stability and strength, and the mind-body connection meet.
    In this episode we revisit a 2023 interview with Angela Metrou of Modern Mind and Body Care to find out just why this under-looked aspect of our overall health is so important, and how to work with your body to move more efficiently and functionally, no matter your age or fitness goals.

    Tea as self-care with Laura Cepeda of Modestine

    Tea as self-care with Laura Cepeda of Modestine

    Tea is a beverage, a trade, a historical phenomenon - and so much more. In this episode I revisit my 2022 conversation with Laura Cepeda, certified tea sommelier and owner of the wellness lifestyle brand Modestine. Laura was introduced to tea by her grandmother Modestine at a young age, and we talk about her early tea experiences while growing up in the Caribbean, how her grandmother's approach to community and wellness influenced her, her experience of becoming a tea sommelier, and just why tea and rituals around tea are so powerful.

So happy to be able to hear more of Meagan’s insights and thoughts!

I have been a longtime follower of the Mom Hour. That podcast has been my favorite for years and when I learned Meagan had a new podcast I knew I had to listen to her thoughts as well! I enjoy how down to earth her views are and how realistic her approach to literally everything is! She doesn’t try to encourage anyone to have a perfect cookie cutter life but brings her own experiences to listeners in super relatable ways. Also as a fellow Mom I really appreciate when she shares real life stories and those from her childhood as well! Loved her and Sarah and still adore her in this awesome new podcast!

Latest episode with Kelle Hampton

You know your podcast career is over when you scrape the bottom of the barrel and find Kelle Hampton maniacally grinning at you. Google the guest yourselves, but what you will find is not comforting or cozy at all. This one is a disappointment.

Cute cozy!!

Such a cozy podcast - ESPECIALLY the winter episodes! Excited to hear more! And I am also a tea lover, so I love to hear about the new teas!
