Incorporating these small moments of joy into your daily routine really can make a big difference in your overall well-being.
With this in mind, i introduce you to the beautiful guest joining me on this week's podcast:
A self-professed pleasure seeker in all the right ways.

After being diagnosed with Post Natal Depression after the birth of her son, she had trouble coping with what was happening to her body. Even after 15 years of yoga practice and teaching, and practicing as an exercise physiologist, studying neurology, physiology, biology Working as a health and wellness coach and coordinator for years didn’t seem to really help either.
But she realized that there was a better way to prepare for motherhood and a better way to weave herself through life and business, whilst becoming the woman she was here to be.
In this week's episode, Regan shares her insights and practices to reveal just how simple the methods are but still how challenging it can be to break old patterns and beliefs around low self-esteem and low self-worth.
