In this episode, we are delighted to hear from Carla Julian, a kid's certified yoga instructor. Carla is the owner of Move on Yoga - an organisation that promotes wellness for children. Carla expresses her passion for creating an environment that is safe, free from technology and a place for young people to connect with their feelings and emotions. In her programmes, through the power of creativity, movement and mindfulness Carla is seeing wonderful development in her students. She explains the need to have more programmes like this in the education system, as evidence suggests that the practice of yoga for kids improves learning and general performance.

In Episode 5 of Season Four, Catherine O’Farrell brings to light her excruciating ordeal of being in a road accident. As Catherine cycled off into the Dubai sunset, a car hit her from behind and left her ‘literally’ hanging on for her life.
With an amazing team of people at the helm, Catherine began to visualize her future positively and created a new pathway that didn't match what she was originally told in the hospital. Catherine, backed by her mother and the doctor refused to accept that she would not walk again, and instead, ran, cycled and swam her way to what she is today - an Iron Woman! For anyone who has experienced a setback, this episode is not to be missed.

On today’s show Helen Farmer from Dubai Eye talks about the guilt of being a working mother.  She talks about how her life was transformed when she was engaged, married and pregnant within a year.  She was back at work within 45 days but as her first born turned one, the guilt started to creep in. 
Helen goes on to explain how she tries to juggle being the full time host of ‘Afternoons with Helen Farmer on Dubai Eye 103.8’ and being mother to two girls.  She is the first to admit it is a struggle and she does not have all the answers - and her approach is still a work in progress.
