Bent Back Into Shape with Esther Nagle
Esther Nagle created a mask and comfort blanket out of alcohol for over 20 years. Wracked with self-loathing and shame, she had virtually no other coping strategies in life besides drinking. When life got difficult, that coping strategy made things worse, and Esther surrendered into a breakdown.
In today’s interview Esther shares her story from hitting rock bottom several times to finding herself again through Yoga and self-exploration.
Through Yoga, she learned tools that helped her reach a place where she no longer needed alcohol. This showed her that Yoga is far more powerful than she ever realized, and she realized she had a message to share.
Esther wrote her first book last year, achieving a lifelong ambition.
Bent Back into Shape: Beating Addiction Through Yoga shares both her experience and the tools that helped her so much.
She has spoken internationally and in the UK to share her experiences and wisdom.
She now helps people to untangle themselves and live a life of joyful sobriety, deep connection, and authentic living.
During our interview, Ether shares the power of the breath for mental and physical health.
She challenges the preconception that yoga is “just a stretching class”.
Yoga can be more than just a way to relax. It can be the foundation for transformation and growth.
Esther Nagle also shares that cravings are just thoughts, and thought can be controlled. We can take control of thoughts and emotions and consciously act the way we want to.”
