Thank you so much for your positive words and support on last week's podcast episode with Nourishing Minds Nutrition. It's so encouraging to me to hear how many of you are embracing intuitive eating and ditching the calorie counting and endless diet cycle. Meg and Victoria are such an inspiring team and incredible resource for learning how to listen to your body and embrace your intuition.

Speaking of inspiring and intuition, I'm so excited to introduce you to today's podcast with Kait Hurley. Kait is a movement and meditation teacher and entrepreneur based in Portland, OR. Kait struggled with meditation until she found that by moving her body beforehand, she was able to get in turn her attention inward and calm, focus and center the mind for a meditation session. Realizing this powerful synergy between movement + meditation, Kait was inspired to create a digital platform to help women connect with themselves in a deeper, more meaningful way through mindfulness and motion.

On today's episode we're chatting about intuitive exercise, embracing your anxiety and using movement and meditation to help harness it for good.

Here are a few other things we covered in today's episode:

  • Intuitive exercise and how she found balance after years of overexercise
  • Kait’s panic attacks and how she discovered she was struggling with an anxiety disorder
  • Meditation and how meditation has helped her to manage her anxiety
  • Her meditation journey and the obstacles she was challenged with along the way
  • Kait’s anxiety and how she sees it as a benefit in her life
  • How meditation has helped her work through the shame of her anxiety
  • Who Kait looks to for inspiration and how they inspired her movement and meditation platform
  • Why combine meditation and exercise
  • Why “less is more” when it comes to meditation and exercise
  • What advice she would give to her 20 year old self.
