Ever feel like you're carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders? Or that you're just too, too busy to stop and take some time out for self-care? This episode is for you!

Have a listen to me chat with my yoga teacher, Karen Goldman, who's managed to help herself to slow down from her go-go-go corporate job - and helped me to slow down too.

Karen is passionate about bringing the powerful benefits of self-care and simple yoga practices to the whole world - rather than just Instagram-worthy "yoga types" who tie themselves in knots (most definitely not me!).

As someone who is stubbornly unbendy, I love Karen's refreshingly warm, down-to-earth, compassionate and laughter-filled approach.

Whether you've ever tried yoga or not, this episode will give you simple, practical techniques that you can try today (from home) to feel calmer and more peaceful. No equipment, flexibility or experience needed!

Whether you're suffering from anxiety, insomnia, back problems or just an overload of stress, these techniques can make a real difference to your life.
