Welcome to the willGather: Navigating the world with your aging loved one podcast! Thank you for joining us.

Essentially, we are living two lives as a caregiver- one of our own and the other of the person we are caring for, how exhausting is that? How do we keep up that pace? We don't. Not without really caring for ourselves.

Today, I interview Jo Bregnard. She is a cancer survivor and caregiver. She is a certified Yoga teacher as well as trained in Thai bodywork, Reiki, Yoga 4 Cancer, and Yin Yoga. She brings her caregiving journey and experiences into our conversation today and we talk all about how she can help caregivers support themselves with yoga and everyday self-care practices.

Jo and I talk about:

  • How our stories lead us to purpose
  • Family caregiver needs and challenges
  • The importance of not forgetting different pieces of yourself
  • What is self-care and why we need it
  • Simple ways to add self-care into caregiver's day
  • How we can incorporate self-care with our loved one
  • What can we do with our loved ones to incorporate self-care
  • Encouragement to caregivers
