Welcome to the Thriving Not Surviving radio show with Gina Gardiner. My guest today is Samantha Layzell and our topic is "The benefits of living from a place of your authentic truth and self compassion - how self-acceptance is the first step to true freedom."
Samantha Layzell is an experienced yoga teacher and yoga studio owner. She is well known for her calming vibe and advocacy of self-compassion as a superpower. Samantha’s journey of self-discovery through her personal adversity has blessed her with the ability to transmute difficulty and trauma into authentic love. Her powerful blend of yoga and meditation practices act as a catalyst for compassionate transformation in the lives of her students. Samantha says…”I strongly believe when we practise yoga we are practising self-compassion. Beginning our practice by sending loving kindness to ourselves softens our expectations on the mat and in this softening our inner critic quietens and we can begin to accept ourselves as the beautiful, unique and powerful beings we truly are.”
**and in the second half of the show, I have a "Genuine Chat", alongside my good friend, author Rachel Davidson. In today's show, our topic is "The Wonderful World of Words"'.**
