Nutrition, stress and burnout with Emma Newlyn (Part 1)
In today’s episode, Ellen is joined by returning guest Emma Newlyn. Emma is a naturopathic health coach, yoga teacher, holistic therapist & writer. She specialises in blending ancient wisdom and modern wellness in her Whole Health consultations and coaching with clients, as well as leading educational courses teaching others how to bring Ayurveda, TCM and the latest in modern health science into their lives and professional work.
Emma runs online courses, in-person women’s retreats and workshops, and Co-leads The Movement 200hr yoga teacher training programme based in Sussex, UK.
In this episode, Emma talks to Ellen about how what we eat, and what we don’t eat can impact our ability to deal with stress and recover from burnout. As you’ll hear in the episode, this is a hefty topic with lots to cover. So, we’ve decided to make this a multi-episode interview with this being part 1.
A little disclaimer – for some reason unknown to us Ellen’s voice has recorded with a helium effect (?!) We couldn’t find a way to rectify this, and the important thing is Emma sounds absolutely fine!
We hope you find this episode supportive, encouraging and inspiring! If you’re enjoying the podcast remember to leave us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts. This is a wonderful (free) way to support our work.
