CHAKRAS & CHARDONNAY SEASON 1 TRAILER
Maria: [00:00:00] Hello, it's Maria, and I'm so excited! Season one is around the corner, so I wanted to give you a quick glimpse of what to expect, starting with a little about me. I'm Maria, I'll be your host, and I'm a wellbeing coach and meditation teacher. I also teach and mentor on Ayurvedic lifestyle. So that's things like breath work, yoga, nutrition, mindfulness.
And one of my favorite things to teach is mindful tasting. You see, I've had a long love affair with wine and been in the wine industry for 10 years, educating in a beautiful boutique winery. But here's the thing, I wasn't always this zen nor this mindful. My journey has been from self-medicating to meditating.
In 2020, I decided to pivot out of a 20 year career in the software industry and step into my purpose work launch Take 5, where it's my mission to help you take your power back from anxiety and the effects of chronic stress. You can read all about my creds and inserts from Chopra Global, Yoga Alliance, et cetera, on my website.
But the most important piece here is experience. I use these teachings that I'll be sharing with you to take my own power from the symptoms of general anxiety disorder, as well as a nervous system dysfunction and chronic pain, and just everyday life stresses of being a busy working parent, which brings me to the why.
I believe we each have a unique capacity to heal, and that you are much more powerful than you think. It's my intention with this podcast to take all my research, studying, and training in these teachings and serve them up to you in digestible bites, and keep 'em fun and tasty. I want to empower you to find the healing tools that work for your uniqueness.
I'll be coming at you weekly, either solo or with a fun guest, and it'll be perfect for a 20 minute car ride. With each episode, there'll be a teaching that you can then put into action to support your wellbeing, and we'll also explore a featured wine. As for the finish, as we say in the wine industry, I'll take you through a Take 5 guided relaxation, because here's the thing, this world is not going to get any less stressful, but you can become more resilient to life's' stresses, and I'm here to help you learn how.
