Is your dosha out of balance? If you’re wondering what dosha is or how to get it in balance then you’re going to want to hear today’s episode with Sahara Rose. Sahara is an author, podcaster, speaker,  and founder of Rose Gold Goddesses. We explore her path to embodiment through dance and we talk about how movement (specifically twerking) can help you connect with your other side. Sahara shares the three different archetypes of Ayurveda, how these perpetuate and show up in our lives and what you can do to help get your dosha back in balance.

Meditation isn’t for everyone. It can be really challenging to get into a meditative state which is why I am an advocate for breathwork. The power of your breath is easy to access and brings just as many benefits as meditation. When you have deep states of resource and are using your breath to access something deeper within you, you can hold it all without feeling as heavy. You have to increase your capacity, by increasing your energy. This isn’t about biohacking or having a cup of coffee because true energy comes from within our bodies. In this episode, I am talking about why you should consider the breathwork modality and a simple 90-second breathwork experience you can use whenever you need to tap into your wellbeing. 

 

Inside this episode I jam on:

 

  • A story about how I struggled with meditation and found breathwork
  • Why it’s so hard to feel yourself when you’re congested with the emotionality of other people
  • Why you need to use breathwork to unhook the mind
  • The beautiful shift of getting out of your mind and into your body
  • A simple 90-second breathwork experience
  • How breathwork gives you access without waiting for an opening

You have the access to unlock your bravery and do the things that make you say, “OMG”. Unlocking your bravery is all about taking action on the things that scare you. It’s about building evidence for yourself that you can show up and do the hard thing. In this episode, I was joined by Kathy Caprino, M.A., author, career success coach and keynote speaker. She shared what it really means to unlock your bravery and how you can do that by taking action and doing the things that make you realize, “if I can do that, I can do anything!” She gets real about honing in on your embodied feminine self and what feminism means to her (and why so many people have a problem with feminism). We also chat about unbinding yourself from trauma, issues she sees women face in their careers and her new book, The Most Powerful You.
