Hello & welcome to the Fearless Self-Love Podcast! Loving ourselves is the most selfless thing we can do. When we prioritize our own needs, we show up more fully for others. We are more receptive and aware. We begin to live with ease. Each episode features conversations with creatives and wellness pros, whose real-life stories will inspire you to take the next step toward living a life you love. Our bottom line is to cultivate communities of fearless self-love and compassionate connection…and you'll feel like you're right here with us, sitting around the table with a pot of tea. We'll walk you through an easeful living practice, and leave you with a courageous self-care tip. I'm your host, Andrea Catherine, Yoga Health Coach, & your advocate to live a flourishing Life You Love. [New episodes released on the 1st and 15th of every month.]

If you’ve been following along with Season One of this podcast, or even if you just saw the name “Fearless Self-Love Podcast,” it’s pretty clear that we focus on topics of self-love and self-care. But it’s important to acknowledge that we’re all at different points in our self-love journeys, and sometimes it can be difficult to figure out where to start. I’m excited for you to join me in my conversation with Cate Stillman, Yoga Health Coach, as we wrap up Season One by discussing what comes first - the habits or the self-love - and how to move forward no matter where we are in our journey.

  • What it means to invest in yourself
  • How to get to know your self-worth
  • How to learn to trust your body
