Hayley Ebersole, Founder of the Body-Mind Freedom Membership, supports soulful visionaries to release overwhelm and stress by cultivating inner and outer strength and wellbeing so they can embody the change they wish to see in the world. As a personal trainer, holistic wellness coach and yoga teacher, her work offers a pathway to physical, emotional and soul healing through reconnection to the wisdom of nature inside of our own bodies through group movement rituals, classes and courses.
In a culture that rarely supports positive change, it can be easy to lose touch with ourselves. Hayley explains that as leaders, it is vital to ground our minds and bodies in the natural world. A simple way to do this is by touching your own body during mediation. According to Hayley, this method calms the nervous system and amplifies the benefits of your practice. Hayley finds that when she closes her eyes, places her hand on her belly, and takes a deep breath, she is no longer in her head, but rather grounded to the earth through her own body.
Tune into this week’s episode of Aligned & Soulful Leadership to learn more about the ways you can deepen your meditation practice, create energetic boundaries and become rooted in nature to cultivate inner and outer strength.
