Episode 5: Ashtanga Yoga. With Jo Kemp, Dawn Lister and Daniel Groom

November 24, 2020

In this podcast episode, in conversation with Jo Kemp, we discuss what Ashtanga Yoga is, the influence of her teacher Hamish Hendry at Ashtanga Yoga London and the recent abuse revelations in the Ashtanga world and how Jo has put foundations in place to support and heal her community. Jo is pregnant with her first child in this episode and talks about how she has leaned into her community for support and her amazing self care plan!

 

Jo is the co-owner of the new yoga shala Ashtanga Yoga Essex in Hockley. Ashtanga Yoga Essex is on a beautiful plot of land, surrounded by oak trees. The shala was hand built by her partner Mikey and father Mike as well as student volunteers. The build was mostly funded by students, friends and family of AYE. Jo has been a yoga practitioner for over 15 years after finding yoga in India when she was just 16 years old. Jo believes her daily ashtanga yoga practice has been a valuable tool in living a healthy, peaceful and balanced life, opening more doors than anything else. Because of this she has much passion and enthusiasm for sharing this practice and growing like minded communities.

Physically, spiritually and emotionally. We are all made up of energy, vibrations.

Episode 3: Forest Bathing. With Ruth Mortimer, Dawn Lister and Daniel Groom

Episode 3: Forest Bathing. With Ruth Mortimer, Dawn Lister and Daniel Groom

October 27, 2020
Forest bathing is the practice of spending time in the forest for better health, happiness and a sense of calm. It literally means to bathe in the atmosphere of the forest, immersing your senses in your surroundings. Discovery, curiosity, awareness, openness, awe and joy. It's a slow sensory walk through the forest using mindfulness, meditation, breathing and walking exercises.
 
Join us in conversation with Ruth Mortimer, a Forest Bathing Practitioner, to discuss the practice as a way to reconnect with nature and to calm those feelings of stress. 

Research has proven that spending time around trees can reduce blood pressure, lower stress, boost energy and boost the immune system. Forest bathing is relaxing, connecting, stimulating, refreshing, immersing and awakening to our natural roots - we are all connected to nature!

 
Ruth Mortimer works as a Forest Bathing guide in Essex, and has been working with organizations such as Essex Wildlife Trust, the National Trust, Essex County Council, Mind and the NHS. Her own personal journey of healing from a critical illness lead her to this work, and has been very much informed by the people she met along the way whilst working on her own recovery and understanding.

Episode 2: Grief. With Dipti Solanki, Dawn Lister and Daniel Groom

Episode 2: Grief. With Dipti Solanki, Dawn Lister and Daniel Groom

October 12, 2020

We have all experienced grief in our life, the loss of a loved one, a pet, a job, a relationship.  And then there is collective grief, the grief we are feeling right now around how our whole world is changing due the unique circumstances we are living in with Covid-19 and how that affects us as a community, a society.  

Join us in conversation with Dipti Solanki, a grief coach, to discuss why the grieving process is important, how we can support ourselves and each other as we walk through the challenges that grief presents.  

Dipti Solanki is a rare breed: she isn’t afraid to sit with her own or other people’s discomfort. As a homeopath, life and grief coach, she walks alongside women who are no longer willing to live lives of resentment, tense relationships, deep sorrow, frustrated ambition and hollow friendships. Instead, Dipti guides them through a deep healing process that clears out the stagnant grief that keeps them stuck, and shows them the amazing potential that each day holds.  

Dipti was devastated by grief early in her own life. Like many people, she thought she was “fine” until persistent depression and severe anxiety took over. The process that Dipti takes her clients through mirrors what she experienced, which is why she’s so committed to spreading the message that positive change and healing ARE possible. When Dipti learned that her unresolved grief was keeping her from meaningful relationships, living her truth and feeling true happiness, she dedicated her life to helping women clear out the sludge of old emotional wounds and live life beyond their wildest imaginings. Her clients have never looked back, and neither has she. 

Dipti Solanki is a qualified Grief & Life Coach, registered Homeopath and lectures at the College of Integrated Nutrition and Homeopathy.'

She recommends The Mighty, a fabulous newsletter and ‘When The Body Says No’ by Dr Gabor Maté and  Molecules of Emotion by by Candace Pert (Author), Deepak Chopra (Foreword).
