{Untangled 029} The physical body as a portal into the untangling process, with Ashly Rose Wolf

Ashly Rose Wolf is an International Women’s Health & Sensuality Coach and the founder of Femme Rising® helping women revolutionize their relationship with their bodies so they can unlock their full feminine potential.

Ashly says she started using food as a way to feel but at the same time to numb out. As a senior in college, her food addiction had escalated into anorexia. She says she remembers looking into the mirror as she prepared to return home for spring break and realised she was so skinny her family would know there was a problem.

As she stared into the mirror, two statements came to her: “I’ll never be the woman I know I’m supposed to be if I don’t heal my relationship with my body” and “My body is the way in.”

This began her untangling journey to heal her eating disorder, digestion, candida and a parasite. To then re-awaken to her sensuality, cyclical nature and the wisdom within her body.

Ashly also shares:

+ How her food addiction, lead her to study holistic nutrition and eventually become a women’s health and sensuality coach.

+ How she medicated her depression and her menstrual cycle and how this exacerbated her disconnection from her body.

+ The importance of allowing ourselves to drop into quiet, dark periods of soul-hibernation and how to balance this in a society that expects us to be on all the time.

+ Moving your body to move through the untangling process.

“I started to play with the sound of myself and step outside of it. I didn’t judge it as much as grow it, expand on it, colour it a lot more than I was.”

Elsie Escobar starting podcasting in 2006 when she created Elsie’s Yoga Class in which she began sharing audio recordings of her live yoga classes. That podcast has now been downloaded over 4 million times. But the story doesn’t stop here.

Deanne Love says that a hula hoop rolled into her life 10 years ago. She’d quit her job as a primary school teacher, packed up her whole entire life in Australia and moved to Tokyo. Finding herself unhappy in a job singing to babies (yup, you read that right) and incredibly lonely in a foreign city, she took up hooping.

Little did Deanne know, her teaching background and her love of hooping would eventually collide to form the foundations of her passion-based business Hooplovers.

Deanne and I explore:

+ Going against the grain, leaving behind a life that looked right on the outside but felt wrong on the inside, to follow her ‘fuck yes’ feeling.

+ Her wild adventure in Tokyo, her story of discovering hoop dance AND meeting her husband.

+ How Deanne found her ‘girl gang’ – the women that support and love her.

+ The fear of rejection when we share our gifts with the world and Deanne’s perspective on moving through the fear anyway.

+ How she creates a profitable, creative, passion-fuelled business through the power of listening.

“I am always thinking how can I add value? How can I add so much value that people want to listen to the podcast, they want to support it, they want to help with its growth, they want to share it? That, for me, is a really key point.”

After working in finance for 8 years, Sarah Williams quit her city job and spent 18 months travelling the world, climbing Kilimanjaro, backpacking around South America and doing a ski season. She used this time to help her to decide what she wanted to do with her life.

On her return, she decided she wanted to motivate and inspire young girls. She developed Tough Girl Challenges and began speaking at local schools to girls about their goals and plans for the future.

Shockingly, she discovered many of the girls didn’t have any goals, most of them not being exposed to inspirational female role models.

In August 2015 Sarah launched the Tough Girl Podcast where she interviews inspirational female explorers, adventurers, athletes and everyday women who have overcome great challenges.

In this interview Sarah and I explore:

+ How Sarah grew her following to 800+ women in her Tough Girl Tribe Facebook group and 240,000+ downloads.

+ The systems and processes Sarah has in place for time management, productivity and promotion.

+ How Sarah monetises her podcast.

+ The opportunities and growth gifted to her through her podcast.
