189. Nourishing Beauty Through Action and Innovation with Lisa Lindahl, Inventor of the Sports Bra

Can you imagine a time when women weren’t breaking olympic records, running, practicing yoga, climbing, competing, serving, spiking, scoring goals and generally ROCKING the world of athletics?

Can you imagine a world without the sports bra?

Indeed, it wasn’t long ago that Lisa Lindahl pursued that iconic idea – the sports bra – and positively changed women’s lives forever. Today’s episode is all about Lisa’s inventions, realizations, authored works and important ideas. We cover many topics, including the importance of perseverance, the revolutionary act of becoming friends with your body, thriving with epilepsy, women in healthcare, beauty as a spiritual practice, the cultural impacts of the sports bra and how relationships are EVERYTHING.

An accomplished visual artist and writer, Lisa is the author of: Minding Your Business, a guide book for women entrepreneurs in the Women’s Small Business Program in Vermont, with Carminati and Angolano; “On Being a Woman with Epilepsy,” the opening chapter in the collective work Women with Epilepsy: A Handbook of Health and Treatment Issues, Beauty as Action, the Way of True Beauty and How its Practice can Change our World, which outlines the important role of aesthetics in shifting the current cultural paradigm and how each of us might engage and embody such change, and most recently, her invaluable business memoir, Unleash the Girls, The Untold Story of the Invention of the Sports Bra & How It Changed the World (And Me), EZL Enterprises, 2019.
