Show Notes

Are you exercising for pleasure or out of pain?

In this episode I challenge you to ask yourself important questions when it comes to working out. I share my story of injury and the fallout that became the wakeup call for my life and the reframe that catapulted me to recovery.

Listen in as I dig into the science behind the myriad of benefits movement can have for your sleep, bones, balance, stress reduction and, of course, your skin.

Join me to discover why your relationship with exercise keeps you stuck, and the connection between your brain-body and beauty so you can begin to identify and question a different way forward. I’m showing you that everything is skincare and why this concept is the perfect gateway for working on your relationship with yourself.
