Me, Myself & I – Free to be who? (Workshop with Kate Billing)
“Just be yourself” is pretty common advice these days. But who am I and who are the other voices in my head on a daily basis that encourage or limit my effort to become more myself? In this session Kate will share some practical tools and approaches to help you tune into your self-talk, create a bit of space around your thoughts and begin to turn your Inner Critic into an Inner Coach. Self-talk is part of who we are and how we all experience life. It develops early on in our lives and is linked to the development of both language and parental attachment. It’s a tricky beast that can keep us stuck in old selves and old patterns however it can be a powerful ally in our personal evolution when we learn to work with it. No matter the place of personal stretch in which you find yourself over the course of the Pod Be Free day and beyond, getting present to your self-talk and learning to use it for good are tools for life.

Pod events are all about living a healthy and active lifestyle, bringing women together as a learning community and giving you the tools to become the best version of yourself. Started back in 2013 by Natalie Stettler (Yoga Teacher) and Victoria Stuart (PaddleFit Pro Coach) with cancer survivor Karin Horen and friends as a way to celebrate “Pink October” (breast cancer awareness month), this year we join forces with Corporate Life Coach/SUP Instructor Helen Blair, and Personal Trainer/Wellness Coach Tess Bos, and we invite Thought Leader Kate Billing (Blacksmith) to help you unlock the power of self-talk and begin to turn your Inner Critic into an Inner Coach.
