What Up, Get Up Nation? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of the Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with the amazing Kelsey Delane. During adolescence her opinion of herself was that she was “too sensitive, ugly, weak, and hopeless.” On her website www.kelseydelaneyoga.com, she describes aching for years to be “relieved of the burden of her Self.” She tried therapy and medication but didn’t find a satisfying solution until she discovered yoga at the age of 17. As she began to practice yoga, she began to “attempt things she previously believed she was incapable of doing.” She “stood in awe” of her strength as she “held a challenging posture and celebrated her ability to use her breath to endure discomfort.” Her perceptions changed about herself and the world, and a door opened into endless possibilities. Her practice has been her “anchor through teenage pregnancy, divorce, mental illness, and every day life.” Today she uses all she has learned and experienced to “walk alongside other women as they refine the tools of their practice, to encourage them along the way, and challenge them toward growth.” In short, after becoming the hero of her own life, she now helps others become the hero of theirs. It’s an honor to welcome Kelsey to the Get Up Nation Podcast.
