Yet another great show! In some ways, this one is even more dear and near to my heart for yoga and mindfulness have completely changed my life. Dr. Megan’s comment regarding mindfulness as one of the most powerful tools for body image is spot on. Of course, she usually is. I really enjoy what she brings to the show.
Emily Nolan has a really great idea in topless yoga, and the fact that the tour is following fashion week is nothing short of brilliant. Again, her remarks regarding yoga as a unique and personal experience that brings a connection with the body like no other is something every human being can access. It does not get much better than that, I think.
And last but far from least, your practical and no-nonsense comments regarding what we eat and how that establishes a relationship with our body is yet again another piece of advice that any woman or man can take and make their own. Brilliant!
As you know, I am a great GB fan–each show is unique and informative for everyone–yet a show like this reveals just how each one of us can be the best we can be. Thanks to everyone for yet another fine broadcast.
