Sydney’s adrenal glands were worn out from years of being overly active, constantly moving, and always wanting to push herself a little harder. She needed to slow down and make a big life change in order to get healthy, gain her energy back, and bring herself into alignment. However, changing her entire life all out once to make this happen seemed far too overwhelming and difficult. Taking the step to join one of Yogahealer’s first Body Thrive courses, in order to learn how to make incremental changes week by week in a group setting, seemed much more doable.

Sydney and Jessica talk about Sydney’s Body Thrive experiences over the past 4 years, why they are so transformative and healing, and how Sydney continues to use the techniques she has learned in her life as an active travel guide. They discuss what habits anchor us and bring us back to a grounded place, as well as how we can use these habits to cultivate and develop our intuition within the body. Working in a group setting to deepen your knowledge about health and wellness and how to bring your body back to a state of ease and balance is so powerful and so healing. It is truly an experience everyone should be a part of at least once in their lives in order to grow, transform, and use the help of others to be propelled into a healthier, more awake and aligned version of yourself.


What you’ll get out of tuning in:

  • How can BT habits help you to thrive?
  • Why is it so helpful to work in groups?
  • Why are Kaizen habits so important?
