Episode 38 - Hannah Barrett - Yoga Instructor

"Model your behaviour to plant positive seeds in other people”

Hannah Barrett joins Dominic and Juliet on this week’s episode of Business Without Bullsh-t. Hannah’s a Yoga Instructor, Business Women, and influential Instagram star with a following of over 360,000.

Her transition from being a full-time Actuary to a Yoga Instructor began in 2014 when she became a mother. But it was when Hannah had her second child that things really changed for her. After a traumatic birth, Hannah experienced Post Natal Depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, both of which she overcame through the practice of Yoga and Meditation.

Now, Hannah's on a mission to share the incredible benefits of Yoga worldwide. She runs live classes, has her own YouTube channel, has co-written 4 e-books, and has her very own Yoga & Meditation app.

The three discuss Hannah’s history and lead up to becoming a Yoga Instructor and Instagram Influencer. We also get to hear about why Hannah believes people gravitate towards Yoga, the health benefits gained from regular practice, and what she has coming up with her live classes, app and new book. We also get a mini breathing lesson from Yogi Dominic.

Another packed episode, minus the BS. Roll out your mat and press play!
