Episode #55: Kait Hurley on Anxiety + Intuitive Exercise

March 28, 2018

Thank you so much for your positive words and support on last week’s podcast episode with Nourishing Minds Nutrition. It’s so encouraging to me to hear how many of you are embracing intuitive eating and ditching the calorie counting and endless diet cycle. Meg and Victoria are such an inspiring team and incredible resource for learning how to listen to your body and embrace your intuition.

Speaking of inspiring and intuition, I’m so excited to introduce you to today’s podcast with Kait Hurley. Kait is a movement and meditation teacher and entrepreneur based in Portland, OR. Kait struggled with meditation until she found that by moving her body beforehand, she was able to get in turn her attention inward and calm, focus and center the mind for a meditation session. Realizing this powerful synergy between movement + meditation, Kait was inspired to create a digital platform to help women connect with themselves in a deeper, more meaningful way through mindfulness and motion

On episode 55 of the That's So Maven podcast we have Kait Hurley on the show discussing anxiety, intuitive exercise and how to use movement and meditation to help balance your anxiety.

On today’s episode we’re chatting about intuitive exercise, embracing your anxiety and using movement and meditation to help harness it for good.

    This was such a great podcast to listen to, and I’m so grateful to have come across it! Anxiety is a new thing in my life that has come to light since becoming a mom to two healthy, fun and beautiful little girls. What I was so surprised to learn through this podcast was how much it relates to the anxiety I have experienced with motherhood, and the culture around parenthood in general. Such good quotes and nuggets that I’ve taken away from this – thank you for sharing!

    Oooh, I’m eager to listen to this! I also struggle with anxiety and am always looking for other ways to manage it and handle it when I’m having one of my moments. I will say some good quiet time usually helps my mind rest. Bonus points if there’s a hot cup of tea, a scented candle and some light stretching involved. – Kaitlyn | http://www.poweredbysass.com
