128: Harnessing Your Ability To Change with Nicole Sciacca

128: Harnessing Your Ability To Change with Nicole Sciacca

Body

This is an extra special episode, because it’s a conversation with one of the most extra-special people in my life: mobility expert, personal trainer, yoga teacher, dancer, and one of my dearest friends in the universe, Nicole Sciacca.

Nicole is a WEALTH of information on any and all things having to do with how your body moves – and prides herself on nurturing her client’s sense of self while optimizing their performance, potential, and personal recovery. She’s also a rockstar mother, a former fitness studio owner, a meditation teacher (and devotee), a trainer to A-list celebrities, an eternal optimist, and basically the most loyal friend you’ll ever have.

In this episode we talk about Nicole’s philosophy on doing and being many things in your lifetime (and what that can actually look like), the phrase that helped her navigate the darkest moments of her personal and professional life, how an unexpected instance involving one of her most famous clients led her to instant Instagram celebrity status literally overnight (and how she navigated that), how to rethink movement as your body ages, and WAY more.

Oh! And: Join us this Sunday June 27th at 3:00pm Eastern Time for Nothing But a Number – A Movement + Self Talk workshop to reimagine your relationship with age. In this free 90 minute workshop, you’ll dissect your relationship with age and “aging” no matter how old you are. Half intentional movement focused on longevity and joint health, half mindful discussion, walk away with practical tools to help you age powerfully in body and spirit.

125: Finding Your OWN Normal with Jessica Murnane

125: Finding Your OWN Normal with Jessica Murnane

the WANTcast

WANTcast listener (#1) favorite (#2) Jessica Murnane (#3) is back this week — and this time, in the midst of all the “new normal” talk, we’re talking about YOUR normal.

In this jam-packed episode, Jessica and I dive into how to figure out what “normal” and “best” mean for you…when what you’re feeling is anything BUT those things.

(We’re also laughing a lot, because Jessica brings SO much joy to the WANTcast.)

Her new book, Know Your Endo: An Empowering Guide To Health and Hope with Endometriosis, isn’t only for people with endo – but for people who think they could possibly have endo, for people who love people who have/could have endo, or people who are questioning if the “normal” they experience is the same “normal” they hear everyone else talking about. It is a revelation, a revolution, and a treasure trove of both stories and strategies to help you build your confidence AND your toolkit.

123: On Feeling Seen + Navigating Invisible Illness with Harper Spero

123: On Feeling Seen + Navigating Invisible Illness with Harper Spero

the WANTcast
When business coach Harper Spero was diagnosed with an extremely rare immunodeficiency disorder known as Job’s syndrome, she was determined to create her own narrative. She believes that battling an invisible illness should not define you.

Not only has Harper learned to embrace her invisible illness, but she has carved a new path and given hope to many who feel equally veiled. Harper couldn’t find podcasts featuring stories of people similar to her. In 2018, Harper launched the podcast Made Visible to help people with invisible illnesses (and those who care for them) feel more seen and heard. In 2020, she launched the Made Visible Writing Class to help others write and share their stories of invisible illness.

In this episode we talk about what it’s like to live with an invisible illness, and what that means during the times of pandemic. We also talk about access and privilege when it comes to getting help, the countless benefits of learning about stories that look different than your own, how to feel — and make OTHERS feel — seen, and so much more.

122: How To Focus On Yourself When You’re Always Focusing On Others (…And Vice Versa)

122: How To Focus On Yourself When You’re Always Focusing On Others (…And Vice Versa)

the WANTcast

A healthy human, in relationship with herself OR with others, is meant to have balance when it comes to what and who gets our attention. We’re not MEANT to be 100% self-focused or 100% other-focused constantly – we need to be both.

In this episode, we’re diving into why you need a mix of “self care” and “others care,” and what to do to help yourself even the balance when it feels like you’ve gone too far in one direction or the other.

121: Walking (And Paving) The Road To Recovery with Johanna Kandel of The Alliance For Eating Disorders Awareness

Body The Recovery Myth the WANTcast

After recovering from a ten-year-long battle with various eating disorders, Johanna Kandel founded The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness. Since its inception in 2000, The Alliance has brought information and awareness about eating disorders to more than 340,000 individuals nationally and internationally. In addition, Johanna runs free weekly support groups, mentors individuals with eating disorders and their families, and helps thousands of people gain information and find the help they need. She’s also the author of Life Beyond Your Eating Disorder (Harlequin). As a passionate advocate for mental health and eating disorders legislation, Johanna has spent a lot of time meeting with numerous members of Congress, and was part of the first-ever Eating Disorder Roundtable at the White House.

In this episode, Johanna and I candidly discuss how to move forward proactively in your life if you’re struggling with an eating disorder, how you can effectively show up for others as someone who KNOWS someone with an eating disorder, and so much more.
