Archives for Self-Love Series
Last month, in this must-listen podcast, Mara Glatzel, a brilliant life coach and writer, chatted with the amazing Vivienne McMaster, a photographer who helps women use self-portraiture to build a deeper and more loving relationship with ourselves. If you remember, Mara and I started our monthly interview series to demystify self-love and show readers what self-love really looks like on a day-to-day basis. We hope these interviews inspire you to create your own practice and treat yourself with more kindness and compassion.
Today, I'm super excited to share our interview with blogger and wordsmith Alexandra Franzen on how she practices self-love. Mara and I started our self-love interview series with the intention to share what self-love looks like for a variety of amazing women around the world. We not only want to demystify self-love; we want to empower you to experience it. I love Alex's enthusiasm and energy and her powerful, interesting and unique way with words. Her pieces always inspire me to pick up my pen and take great care of myself. I remember reading her piece about investing in yourself in Julie's e-book Build Your Biz and Blog with Love, which is all about how self-love can help you build an inspiring and profitable business and blog.
Today, I'm honored to present my interview with Rosie Molinary, who writes one of my favorite blogs about self-acceptance and self-love. (I'm sure you're used to seeing links to her inspiring pieces every week here on Weightless.) Rosie's blog is packed with practical tips and empowering insights. So I'm excited that she's sharing her wisdom on practicing self-love for our monthly series. Mara and I started this series to demystify self-love and take it from abstract to accessible. Rosie is also author of Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self Acceptance, another big inspiration for me. She helps women not only take softer, and more compassionate care of ourselves, but also to find our purpose, and live it honestly and beautifully. I am constantly learning so much from Rosie, and I know you will, too.
I’m super excited to introduce you to Christina Rosalie, an author and artist, who's sharing her thoughts on self-love for this month's series. This series was started by yours truly and Mara Glatzel, an incredibly gifted coach, blogger and writer. We know that self-love can seem abstract and inaccessible. Our goal is to demystify self-love and bring you interviews with individuals who embody it.
A few months ago Mara Glatzel and I debuted our interview series on self-love. Mara is a self-love coach and blogger who helps women close the gap between the lives they deserve and the lives they're currently living. (She also regularly inspires me with her stunning and powerful writing.) Our goal with this interview series is to make the concept and practice of self-love as accessible and feasible as possible. That's why we're sharing stories and insights from women who embody self-love. Today, I'm thrilled to present my interview with Anna Guest-Jelley, who I'm honored to call my colleague and close friend. Anna is the founder of Curvy Yoga, a beautiful, safe and empowering space for practicing yoga at all shapes and sizes and accepting and celebrating ourselves.
Taking yoga teacher Marianne Elliott's class at The Creative Joy Retreat this summer wasn't just a good workout. It was restorative and energizing. It was equal parts gentle and challenging. And, most importantly, it was a lesson in self-love. That's because Marianne encourages her students to connect to our bodies -- and ourselves -- and practice self-compassion. There was no pounding the yoga mat or forcing our bodies into poses. It was about experimenting and having fun. I love Marianne's emphasis on tuning into our needs and values, both on and off the mat. I love her emphasis on practicing yoga for all shapes and sizes.
