Core Connection: Finding Freedom Wherever You Are with Cat Kennedy

– Freedom Lifestyle Edition – 

Kat’s Podcast – Episode no. 20

In this episode I’m having my friend Cat Kennedy on. Cat is a yoga teacher, international retreat leader and plant-based food creator with a passion for helping others discover their innate beauty. 

Cat was on my podcast a year ago and now she’s here for a freedom update: Talking how her perception of freedom has changed over the past year and how she’s experienced the past months. She’d just finished a retreat in Guatemala when the pandemic hit. 

What I love about Cat is how she walks through her day with such joy for the simple things and so in awe of nature, radiating lightheartedness and simple wisdom.
