S1E12: Esther Nagle - recovery coach for midlife misfits
Show Notes

After 20 years of turning to alcohol to deal with any emotion, Esther Nagle discovered a new way to live when she trained to be a yoga teacher. She learned new ways to manage stress, to relax, and to view herself and her life, and chose sobriety after 20 years of addiction. Now with over 9 years of sobriety under her belt, she is a recovery and embodiment coach for midlife misfits who want to have fun and remember it, helping people to find their own inner power, and see the gifts sobriety can bring them. 

Esther fiercely refutes the idea that we must admit powerlessness in order to recover, that we have the power and strength we need, but we might need some support to access it. Esther doesn’t believe that we must always define ourselves by our addiction past, and refuses to call herself an alcoholic, although she freely admits that she used to be. She believes that sobriety is a profound act of self care, and that we only gain when we choose to live sober rather than numbing our lives.

Esther loves to be active and is happiest when hiking or running, rocking out at live music events, or spending time with family and friends.
