Balancing It All is Bullsh*t with Casey Castro

In this episode, we have a very honest conversation about the struggle to balance motherhood, life, and work in the corporate world. Casey Castro is a mother of four, yogi, and has a passion for helping others to grow and reach their potential. Casey has been a yoga practitioner for over 20 years when a debilitating knee injury left her unable to continue with ballet and martial arts. Since then her practice has evolved with her life. "Moving my body has always been a priority, and much like the seasons, my practice changes as my life changes. When I teach yoga, I bring a frankness to it. I make it real. I make it accessible. We can't all be Instagram yogis." This mentality is what drives Sydney Yoga Collective and The Prenatal Yoga Studio to be some of the most popular studios for real people, wearing real clothes, that show up to feel good.   In this episode, we discuss: ·      Her story of deciding to leave her high-powered, corporate sales job to becoming a full-time mother and yogi. ·      The pressure mothers feel to excel and stay relevant in the corporate world. ·      Whether or not it really is possible to balance a career and parenting. ·      The importance of figuring out what you really want and then accepting that. ·      The role meditation and yoga can play in helping you find clarity in what really matters to you. ·      How to find the time to fit meditation into your busy life. ·      The power of redefining what meditation, yoga, or different acts of self-care look like for you. ·      How little things as simple as smiling or breathing can bring you back into the present moment. ·      A new way to see yoga and how to fit it into your life.
