WANTcast 058: On Fat-Phobia + Changing Your Self-Concept with Patricia Moreno of intenSati

WANTcast 058: On Fat-Phobia + Changing Your Self-Concept with Patricia Moreno of intenSati

the WANTcast

As a fitness star at the top of her field, Patricia Moreno appeared to have it all, but knew she was both living and selling a lie: preaching that diet and exercise were the keys to true happiness, while inside she was suffering under a heavy spell of shame and unworthiness. She knew there was more to life, and made it her mission to find the answer and break that spell for everyone suffering the same as her.

Fitness is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. But we also need to train our mind and our heart at the same time. - @intenSati Click To Tweet

After adventures that took her around the world studying, meditating and practicing with gurus and scholars, Patricia created the intenSati Method and began to reshape the fitness industry, and the lives of tens of thousands from the inside-out. Today she’s speaking up and calling out the very methods and mindset that she used to be a part of. She is on a mission tear down the body-shaming self-objectifying thin-ideal norms, and show what self love in action truly looks and feels like.

In this episode, we talk about Patricia’s journey from a girl whose parents put her on a diet at eight years old, to the thought leader and powerhouse she is today. We talk about fat-phobia, and the way our culture (and the fitness industry!) keeps us limiting ourselves without us even KNOWING. We talk about keeping secrets and hitting rock bottom when it looks like you’re at the top. We talk about how to achieve the changes you’re after, and how physicality is only part of making those changes. We talk about where we are, where we’ve been, and where we MUST go if we want to move forward fearlessly in our lives.

You’re not going to want to miss a beat.

WANTcast 054: On Publishing A Book, Believing In Yourself + Saving The Planet with Ashlee Piper of Give A Sh*t

the WANTcast

Wanna get a book published, but nervous you might not have what it takes? Wanna save the planet, but too busy shaming yourself because you don’t know if you even recycle the “right way?” Ashlee Piper’s got you covered.

Ashlee is an eco-lifestyle journalist, TV personality, and author of the new sustainable living book, Give A Sh*t: Do Good. Live Better. Save the Planet. Her work has been featured in and she’s a regular contributor for Glamour, Refinery29, The Washington Post, NBC, FOX, and more.

In this episode, Ashlee breaks down ALL the real-deal step-by-steps of getting a book published by a major publishing house (yep, even if you don’t have “connections” or tens of thousands of followers), how an idea can evolve over time to become what it’s actually meant to be (everyone needs a first draft in life!), and how we can all do our part, no matter WHAT our life looks like, to give a sh*t and save the world – literally.

Publishing a book wasn't easy. There were a lot of defeats and rejections. I could have stopped when people said no, but I always felt compelled to keep going, because it needed to be out there. - @thelilfoxes Click To Tweet

WANTcast 052: On Expanded Consciousness + Entrepreneurship In The Digital Age with Ksenia Avdulova of Breakfast Criminals + Woke And Wired Podcast

the WANTcast

Ksenia Avdulova is a FORCE to be reckoned with in the digital world. Ksenia is a speaker, social media strategist, and founder of @breakfastcriminals, an award-nominated digital platform known for its influential online presence and offline experiences that merge food and mindfulness. You’ve probably seen her gorgeous acai and smoothie bowls on Instagram in her signature “heart bowl.”

Ksenia‘s conscious social media methodology, Hashtag Mindful, is rooted in the idea that social media is a tool to share our message, expand our success, and create a positive impact. She has been a workshop leader and speaker at the United Nations GirlUp summit and other empowerment-centered events and retreats around the world. Ksenia is also a featured marketing teacher on Skillshare and co-founder of @crystalcriminals.

In her podcastWoke and Wired, Ksenia and her guests have unfiltered conversations about expanded consciousness and entrepreneurship in the digital age.

Ksenia has created something REALLY special through Woke and Wired. After binge listening to the first few episodes, I was immediately certain that this is the missing piece we need in a wellness culture that values spirituality over practicality, and a business culture that values the bottom line over looking inside. I am so inspired by these intelligent and nuanced conversations that Ksenia leads with such grace, ease, and mindfulness. There’s truly nothing else like it.

Whether you’re looking to use the internet to build out a business, stumped on how/when to monetize, curious what goes on behind the scenes (and screens) of influencers, or you’re just wondering how the heck to stay grounded and centered in our Like!-Post!-Share! culture, this is a conversation you’re going to want to come back to over and over again.

Grab a pen, take notes, and come hang with us.

WANTcast 047: On White-Knuckling Through Life + Wellness Real-Talk with Talia Pollock of Party In My Plants

WANTcast 047: On White-Knuckling Through Life + Wellness Real-Talk with Talia Pollock of Party In My Plants

the WANTcast

Today’s guest is my dear friend Talia Pollock, blogger, holistic health coach, plant-based chef, comedian, and creator of Party In My Plants. Party In My Plants is a platform and podcast that proves to people that becoming happier and healthier doesn’t have to suck. Through her humorous and honest approach to healthy living, she inspires, instructs and empowers people to take small steps to transform their lives and take the HELL out of HEALTHY.

She’s currently writing her first cookbook, which will be published by Avery, an imprint of Penguin, and I could not be prouder to call her my pal. I’ve learned so much from her when it comes to engaging an audience, staying true to who you are, and making the serious stuff feel a lot more fun and accessible.

In this episode we talk the business side of podcasting/blogging/coaching and our advice to newbies, Talia’s plant party journey, our beef (or should I say, our tofu??) with the commodification of the wellness industry, the link between wellness pros and food or body images – and the stuff to be mindful of if that IS your story (it was with me), and so much more. I had so much fun with her and was on a high for the rest of the day, and know you will be too. Here’s Talia!

Today’s guest is one of the coolest chicks I know (and you too, soon!), and a conversation that’s a LONG time coming: scholar/writer/teacher/activist Natalia Mehlman Petrzela.

 

natalia speaking on our how to activate your inner activist” panel in 2017


Natalia is a historian of contemporary American politics and culture and is currently writing a book on American fitness culture. She is the author of Classroom Wars: Language, Sex, and the Making of Modern Political Culture, and the co-host of Past Present Podcast, a show that turns hindsight into foresight by examining what’s going on in America today through a historical lens. Natalia is Associate Professor of History at The New School, a co-founder of wellness education program Healthclass 2.0 and a Premiere Leader of intenSati, a fitness class that combines cardio with positive affirmations to make the ultimate uplifting workout. 

In this episode we talk about talking to kids about what’s going on in our country/world in an “appropriate” way, where our quest for happiness and “following your bliss” really came from and if it’s actually serving us, making wokeness more than a gimmick, locker room talk (no, not in THAT way), feminism/activism’s place in the wellness industry, and so, SO much more.

We’re back in action, baby!! I can’t think of a better guest to kick off Season Three (which, by the way, will be 20 episodes and now run every other week instead of every three weeks) than author and host Katie Dalebout.

katie dalebout women against negative talk wantcast

Katie is the host of the Let It Out Podcast and the author of Let It Out: A Journey Through Journaling (Hay House 2016). Katie is a writer and podcast host focusing on self-care, self-awareness, and self-expression for the greater good. Through her speaking and writing, she aims to help people develop a positive image of their bodies by embracing their creativity and personality outside of their physicality.

In this episode, Katie and I talk about major transitions, navigating change (when you don’t have a high threshold for change – and GUESS WHAT? Neither Katie or I do!), moving across the country and what it’s taught us, why constant growth and goal-chasing isn’t always a good thing, the value in doing what doesn’t feel like yourself, and so much more (including a topic I was really excited to dive into with her: INTERSECTIONAL WELLNESS).
