season 3


A Time For Change – with Dawn Lister and Daniel Groom

In May 2023, Daniel Groom, our co-host and co-founder of Anahata Yoga Centre decided to step away from Directorship and Management of Anahata Yoga Centre. A decision not made lightly, but one that also comes with opening space for his personal and professional development. 
As Daniel continues to teach Yoga at Anahata and co-host Retreats with Dawn Lister, he now embarks on his new path of becoming a Counsellor which he will offer alongside his Yoga Therapy work.
The theme surrounding this open and honest conversation between our co-founders is CHANGE.
To recognise the ‘pull’ our bodies feel when change is needed, to change direction that feels more aligned with our values and what we want to model. To face fears, be honest to ourselves and others, and to follow our instincts.
Following the end of lockdown, Daniel realised he wanted to change his career path and deepen his therapeutic studies, and in this conversation he opens up about how he recognised his feelings and the journey so far, and the emotional and honest process involved to make the leap of faith.
We hope you enjoy this episode, which we feel is a very apt end to this season of From The Heart. Thank you very much for your continued support of our Podcast and thank you to Daniel for co-hosting three amazing seasons. Please join us in wishing Daniel Groom the very best.
We look forward to bringing you a new Season of From The Heart very soon, which will be hosted solely by Dawn Lister, who will be having deep and profound conversations with inspiring people, which are topical and relevant to our ever changing world.
