Wellness Equity for Women with Carissa Floyd EP: 142

podcast Jun 07, 2023

Women's health encompasses a broad spectrum of physical, mental, and social well-being, and along with it also comes the issue of chronic pain. This is a complex condition that can significantly impact an individual's daily life, both physically and emotionally, and I know because I’ve been dealing with it since childhood.

My friend and today’s guest Carissa Floyd has been through the same, dealing with illnesses such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and endometriosis. But she found a way to understand her pain, manage her conditions, and improve her quality of life, and now guides her clients in their journey toward mind, body, spirit connection through Pilates.

There’s so much we can learn from Carissa’s story, so I invite you to listen in as she and I talk about:

  • The backstory of Carissa’s own journey with chronic pain
  • How she took her pain and allowed it to make her a better coach and guide for others, not just in Pilates but in life in general
  • Providing a safe space for people who are undergoing chronic pain and looking for custom programs and exercises that are efficient for their own individual goals
  • What wellness equity is and understanding how to build your own tools to take care of your body
  • The inside story of my C-section with my firstborn, Dallas

By actively participating in your wellness journey, you can foster a sense of empowerment and take ownership of your health, leading to improved overall well-being and a higher quality of life. Carissa shows us there’s more than one way to deal with chronic pain, but the most important thing is to listen to what your body is telling you.
