028 Why You Don’t Need an MRI

When it comes to pain - an MRI is not always the most helpful first step. As a diagnostic tool it’s fantastic - but it has limitations because a diagnosis says nothing about what your best next step is. And the MRI will most likely find a structural issue - but that...

027 Strong and Bendy with Elizabeth Wipff

Contrary to popular belief, getting stronger will not make you bulk up and lose flexibility. In fact, you’ll probably feel more confident, have better posture, and stop having to ask for help to open jars all the time. Getting stronger transformed the way I carry...

026 Knee Pain

Knee pain is a drag - and just because everyone has it doesn’t mean it’s inevitable. Many of the issues at the knee are caused by something higher up (hips, low back, core) or below (foot/ankle). Think of the knee as the middle kid stuck between your hip and your...

025 Tension Headaches (and what to do)

Tension headaches are a drag. Whether you have a tension headache that won’t go away or get them frequently, like I used to, I know that you’d probably do just about anything to get rid of them. Luckily, you don’t have to sell a kidney, you just have to be intentional...

024 Can You Sweat Out Toxins?

Can you get rid of toxins through your sweat? This is the question that floated around in my head after sweating for an hour (intentionally!) at Shape House. Whether your heat is far-infrared induced (like mine was), from a sauna, or just being outside on a hot summer...

023 Why Your Hips Are So Tight

The solution for tight hips and hip flexors isn’t to stretch more. Especially because your hips aren’t tight because they need more stretching - chances are it’s something else (that’s easily remedied!) If you believe that life without pain is possible, but you’re not...

022 What I’ve Learned from a Decade in the Fitness Industry

A decade in the fitness and wellness industry has taught me more than how fun it is to wear spandex everyday. And teaching at Wanderlust this past weekend has me all nostalgic about the journey to getting here, what I’ve learned, and how you can avoid making the same...

021 Getting Crystal Clear with Devon Cajuste

Crystals are having a moment - but what the heck are you supposed to do with sparkly rocks and do they actually do anything? These are the questions I set out to answer when I sat down with energy healer and crystal connoisseur, Devon Cajuste, who also happens to be a...

020 What to Do About Swelling

I sprained my ankle this weekend. And not just a sort-of-ouchy-sprain but a fall-on-your-face-and-burst-into-tears kind of sprain. But my approach to a sprained ankle (and any acute injury) is a bit different AND will get you back to pain-free faster. Whether you’ve...

Your Host: Alexandra Ellis

Self-Care + Wellness Coach, Body Nerd, and Creator of AE Wellness

Hi! I’m your host, Alexandra Ellis, and I’m a coach, writer, occasional yogi, kettlebell devotee, and 100% Body Nerd.

I’ve made it my life’s mission to better understand how the body works to help you take back control of your self-care, strength, and injury recovery.

With my degree in Exercise Biology, experience in physical therapy and athletic training, and almost 10 years of training people in body-weight strength and stretch programs, I now teach people in months what took me so long to figure out: how to get out of pain and get stronger and more flexible at the same time.
