• Untraining Defined 2.0

    17 MAY. 2024 · Welcome to the episode where (each season) we define what we mean by, “Untrained”! Our guest this week is “the definition of Untrained.” That is to say, it’s us (Iris and Whitney!) talking about what untraining has meant to us personally, where we are in our own “untraining process,” and where the podcast conversations are headed in the future. We’ve had a season full of powerful, insightful, and informative interviews with experts on topics including imposter syndrome, career transitions, anxiety at work, and vulnerability in leadership. Speaking of vulnerability, we both share our own Untrained cycles and invite you to do the same with the worksheet you can download here: http://www.lifealivecoaching.org/resources What we will explore in this episode: - What does “success” look like to you? How has this changed throughout your life? - What “Untrained” means to us. - Power and ownership in creating a more aligned life. - Surfacing our invisible patterns -- until we see it, we can’t change it. - How messy it is to be a human! - Cultivating networks to nurture your truest, most-aligned self. - Evaluating the systems that are ingrained to see if they still serve you. Training: New cycles that don’t involve always working for some future reward. Untraining: The cycles that are no longer serving us in the pursuit to get what we want.

  • Evolutionary Pressure, Synchronized Swimming, and Belonging with Dr. Amanda Blake

    25 ABR. 2024 ·  By popular demand, Dr. Amanda Blake is back as a guest on Untrained! We are so excited to continue our https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/what-if-your-body-is-your-brain-a-conversation-with/id1663000379?i=1000642901091 from January and cover new ground.   We have something in common with Amanda – all three of us have backgrounds as elite athletes. Iris was a fencer, Whitney was a rower, and Mandy was a synchronized swimmer. In this episode, we talk about the relationship between our bodies, our performance (both athletic and at work), and belonging. As former athletes, we discuss how our training at a young age influenced our sense of belonging throughout our lives. Mandy brings human evolution to the topic – we are wired to seek safety, connection, and dignity. But at what cost? Oftentimes, in a sports setting or a work setting, striving for perfection is what’s rewarded, making mistakes is punished, and the cycle of overwork is reinforced. Join us for this episode of Untrained as we examine our behavioral patterns, how they manifest in the body, and what we can learn from children exploring tide pools.  Untraining:  The invisible pathways and behaviors to achieve belonging. Training: A wider variety of options for creating a sense of belonging. What we will explore in this episode:  - How we train our bodies (or our bodies train us) around performance and belonging. - Being present to combat anxiety and overwhelm.  - The cost of high performance.  - Performing from a place of relaxed readiness.  - How intense sports training can show up in other parts of your life. - Why it’s important to “love your typos” and feel safe making mistakes.  - Taking care of yourself and getting the outcome.  - Our brains are on autopilot to find safety, belonging, and respect. - How do we get our sense of belonging at work? Is it by neglecting our own needs?  Guest Bio: Dr. Amanda Blake is the author of the award-winning book Your Body Is Your Brain, and creator of the Body = Brain(TM) course on the neurobiology of experiential leadership learning.  In addition to teaching about the art and science of embodiment, she works with leaders worldwide to help them become their best self, enjoy life more, and make a bigger contribution. Once an internationally competitive athlete, Mandy is skilled at cultivating high performance in herself and others. As a Master Somatic Leadership Coach, she is known for supporting pragmatic yet profound transformations in her clients. She holds a degree in Human Biology from Stanford University and a doctorate in Management from Case Western Reserve University.  She’s also a longtime yoga enthusiast, mountaineer, and musician.

  • A New Approach to Mental Health: The Anatomy of Anxiety with Ellen Vora (P2)

    3 ABR. 2024 · PART 2 of 2  We are thrilled to invite Dr. Ellen Vora to the show today. Ellen is the author of, The Anatomy of Anxiety: Understanding and Overcoming the Body's Fear Response. Anxiety is often regarded as a “neck up” problem, but Ellen debunks this in her book and in our conversation.   Guest Bio: Ellen Vora, MD is a board-certified psychiatrist, acupuncturist, and yoga teacher, and she is the author of The Anatomy of Anxiety. She takes a functional medicine approach to mental health—considering the whole person and addressing imbalance at the root. Dr. Vora received her B.A. from Yale University and her M.D. from Columbia University. Ellen approaches anxiety and mental health from a holistic perspective, acknowledging that talk therapy and meds can be helpful, but they’re not the only solution. Small, incremental lifestyle changes can make a huge difference for some people in dealing with false anxiety, thereby clearing the way to treat true anxiety.  Ellen breaks anxiety into two categories, true anxiety vs. false anxiety, and we explore how to manage both of them. Join us as we broaden the conversation around anxiety and talk about the other paths up the mountain of healing with Dr. Ellen Vora.  Untraining: The mindset that the presence of anxiety means there is something wrong with us that needs to be fixed and that our only two options are psychotherapy or medication. Training: The idea that some anxiety is rooted in the body, and that through teaching, experimentation and listening to ourselves, we have more options when it comes to resourcing ourselves and alleviating anxiety.

There are many factors at the intersection of toxic workplaces, imposter syndrome, and DEI. For example, do I have imposter syndrome or does my boss? Or rather, is my discomfort due to the fact that this is a toxic workplace? And further, how does my identity play into all of this? No matter the answer to these questions, at the end of the day, work should not be hazardous to our health. Dr. Orbé-Austin shares the US Surgeon General’s formal definition of a toxic workplace, tools for overcoming your imposter syndrome, and what DEI actually means in this illuminating conversation. What we will explore in this episode: - How the pandemic allowed us to have more expansive conversations about toxic workplaces and burnout. - What your imposter syndrome can tell you about your environment. - The signs that your boss might have imposter syndrome. - Managing up and modeling boundaries. - How does a remote work environment impact imposter syndrome? - What is double impact imposter syndrome? - Masking (or “covering”) pieces of your identity at work. - The first step that leaders need to take to shift company culture.

The scarcity mindset can be tricky to identify. Oftentimes, it comes in pretty packaging and can look like success.

You rarely get to enjoy the fruits of your labor.Whitney, Iris, and Tanya engage in a vulnerable and enlightening conversation about living with a scarcity mindset: Where does this mindset originate? How are these scarcity thoughts trying to protect us?

She’s also a longtime yoga enthusiast, mountaineer, and musician.Untraining: The idea that our mental intelligence is our greatest asset. Training: There are ways to tap into our embodied intelligence that we haven’t been taught to access or value. Dr Blake will share with us her strategies for retraining from a body centered approach. What we will explore in this episode: - Everyday we leave money on the table by underestimating our bodies intelligence - how can we change this? - Greater understanding of how the body is involved in perceiving information and broadcasting information. The body is a lens of perception working 24/7. - We don’t tend to train our embodied intelligence. Luckily the part of our brain that helps make sense of our embodied experience is as trainable as the intellectual parts. - A lot of tapping our embodied intelligence is about coming to embody new behaviors that are more resourceful and better meet the moment. - Embodiment practices can help widen our window of tolerance. - It can be life altering to learn to listen to your body. - Good news Dr. Blake is working on a book helps people learn HOW to put this work into practice.

  • REAL TALK: What we need to know about men and Untraining

We sat down with him to learn more about his work around men and well-being.Untraining: We want to untrain the idea that men’s and women’s mental health issues look the same and need the same resourcing. Men and women are trained by the culture in different ways so it makes sense their untraining and retraining will look different. When we use the terms men and women we are referring to people who identify as men and women. Training: What do men do with their sensitivity and their emotional challenges? Men are not often given emotional toolkits to manage the challenging emotional terrain of maturing through life. The toolkits of men and women and what they need are different. What you will learn from this episode: - Some of the ways men are struggling at midlife - Taking time to acknowledge and shift the paradigms of traditional masculine and feminine roles at home - The value of “banter” or superficial conversations and silence - Connection and group work can be powerful to share similar experiences You can find him here: Website: https://www.dreamcatchersperformance.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dreamcatchers_performance/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/chinazomsunnynwabueze/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/@snwabueze
