Get Your Life Back with Play

With Krystal Quagliara

Welcome back to The Playfulife Podcast after a two-year pause!

The Playfulife Podcast explores inspiring conversations around play to infuse more joy into your life and relationships, allowing you to savour life fully.

Today’s guest is Krystal Quagliara, I was googling my podcast and found she had one with the same name! I reached out and here we are together talking about play.

Krystal is a playfulness expert in the health and wellness coaching industry. She’s able to help her clients feel ALIVE (Actively Living in Vitality Everyday) and live a life of freedom. She meets them where they are because she understands that none of this comes easy, as her personal health is a choice she has to make daily.

Krystal is also the author of The Playful Journal and the host of her own: The Playful Life podcast. Krystal’s coaching is more than just nutritional plans and exercise. It’s life coaching that incorporates stoic virtues of wisdom, courage, moderation, and social justice with all components working symbiotically.

We delve into the concept of play and its transformative power in our lives.
