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.
