In the first ever Strong + Gentle podcast episode, I talk to Chantel Stucki about her journey through emotional trauma, and how she responded to it first by running (a LOT), then finding healing through meditation, and then how she learned to love yoga. She talks about how her body and spirit have needed different things at different times, and what she is doing nowadays in her workouts, especially having just had her first baby (you’ll hear a bit from her babe in the podcast 😉 So dang cute).
Chantel and I found each other in 2014, and she has been a light in my life ever since. She is one of the most resilient, wise, strong, AND GENTLE (see what I did there?) women I know. I’ve gone through some difficult things myself over the last couple years, and I’m so grateful for Chantel for being there to comfort me, guide me, and share her insights with me from her own similar experiences. I leave every conversation with her feeling edified and ready to conquer. It’s just who she is: she loves so fully, and you can’t help but feel it even just by talking about something completely unrelated.
