This quote has single-handedly revolutionized how I think about self-care and it has also influenced the (consistent) conversations on self-care in this space. As I was thinking about how to have a more fulsome discussion about self-care and meditation, Saskia sent me an email! This was clearly meant to be.


 BONUS: 5-minute guided meditation and breath-work practice at 32:14

Saskia Seeling is an empowerment and meditation coach for millennial women. She is a trained yoga and meditation teacher and a life coach, who helps overwhelmed women to create their dream life (from a place of radical self-love). Her uses her own journey from burnt-out banking supervisor to thriving yoga teacher as the stepping stone for helping women prioritize their personal well-being, say “no” to what is not serving them, and say “yes” to what they truly want from life.

While Saskia primarily works with women, the magic from this episode will help everyone – across all genders, talents, and interests.
