I really want to sit under a blanket, curled up with a cup of coffee and then eat a big cup of soup. How about you? But in the summer I don’t want soup and I want a smoothie instead. Turns out these intuitive practices are so good for our bodies and we need to tune in even deeper into seasonal living. Andrea Claasen joins the podcast (for the 2nd time!) to share her wisdom around seasonal living and holistic wellness practices.
I love how Andrea has integrated her passion into her personal training business and is sharing this really important knowledge with her clients and with us.

“I’m a former type A mom who had to get everything done, there were no days off.
I felt like I always had to be “on” or people wouldn’t respect me. Every workout had to be intense and at least an hour to “count”.
I ate great most of the time but on occasion had too much wine on a Friday night. I pushed myself to the limit because that’s how I thought I would get max results in all areas of life.
All of that lead to me feeling burnt out, never in the present moment and with no real results to show for it.
So what changed? I discovered Ayurveda and learned how to truly listen to my body.
I learned how to workout more effectively & still get results in 45 minutes or less. I have built in time for stillness during my day to have some alone time which is especially needed now as a mom to a busy toddler.
My mission today is to help women not lose their sense of self with all of life’s demands. I do this by teaching my Peaceful Power Practices centered around slowing down, tuning in and connecting to your divine body wisdom.
A little more about why I really needed Ayurveda in my life….
