Thank you so much to all the Opal team. This podcast is really helping me. I’m especially grateful for Sarah’s willingness to tell her story- it really resonated for me, even while my childhood experiences were very different. When I listen to the podcast I am soaking up all the warmth, care and compassion that I know is in the room. You are appreciated!
So so good
Love this podcast! Engaging material, I’m always learning, I look forward to new episodes every time they come out! A must listen for anyone wanting to get curious about their own ideas of health, body, food and relationship to exercise.
Thanks, this is a wonderful space
I’m so thankful for this website. I work in a public job so I not only have my own talk about food and body, but also others’ about me. This is the refreshing and sane place I needed!
