Self Care Reconsidered
with Mado Hesselink
Demystify the idea of self care and learn how to implement it in your own life.
Self care is essential for yoga teachers – but easier said than done. In the fast pace of modern culture, our role has partly become a cheerleader for self care. Yet, many of us live with life circumstances that cause us to neglect our own self-care. In this week’s episode, I demystify the idea of self care and offer a simple way of thinking about it that will help you understand how to implement it in your own life.
