These two love a good chat and cover a range of topics including stress and gut health, acceptance of stress as normal and how to increase your resilience to stress. They talk about stress and its impacts on women specifically. They end with working with women to set them up to succeed, not to create more stress.

Looking at depression through the breathwork lense with Jennylee Taylor

This podcast looks at depression through the lens of Breathwork and explores the feelings that you have when you are in a depressed state. Feelings like emptiness, being disconnected and numb can be the consequence of suppressing emotions from past experiences. Breathwork uses the power of your own breath to bypass what you think you know to tap into your body and breath intelligence and locate the source of the held emotion that you may not even know is there.

Lucy and Jennylee go on to talk about three levels of being and what you may be thinking, physically feeling, and what emotions you would be experiencing when you are operating at each of the levels.

They also look at practical ways to help people in the moment when they are feeling anxious or depressed.
