In this episode I chat with Anna Hearn from Haven Wellness Anna is in the middle of launching her own fitness studio; a unique mirror free space to encourage women to FEEL how they move and enjoy movement for the sake of pleasure, not for changing their shape and size.
Anna has come from a place of overcoming body dysphoria and her fitness journey has led her to fall in love with the skin she’s in.
She believes that honouring the body we’re in now, learning to respect & nourish it from within (rather than
externally consulting a diet book) and moving for pleasure & health (rather than to force it to look a certain way)
gives our body the freedom it needs to regulate it’s own weight and caloric needs - and is a much kinder and
more fun way to live!
All in all, Anna is a fun and bubbly person to chat to, and I’m really excited about the projects she’s working on.
