Julie and Casey sit down with Master Chiller Audrey Holst, founder of Fortitude and Flow, to talk all things perfectionism and burnout—and how to find our way through, back to ourselves.  

Top Takeaways:

  • Perfectionism is a survival mechanism...but what got you here, won't get you there.
  • Perfectionism isn't just limited to the people who seem "perfect". It's an internal experience of trying to prove yourself as worthy in a world that benefits from keeping that knowledge from you, deeply rooted in Patriarchy and Capitalism.
  • Individualism is counter to how we are built as humans. We are designed to work collectively, and collective resilience is more powerful than individual resilience.
  • Getting out of perfectionism is not about mindset or manifesting. It's about getting out of your head and into your perception.  
  • Your perception is in your body. Your body not an afterthought to the brain! It's a whole system of perceiving and functioning in the world that actually informs the brain.
  • Noticing is the first and most important step.

Audrey Holst helps people reform their perfectionism so they can reclaim their agency and put their full energy into what really matters. Her work uses a combination of mindfulness and neuroscience tools and combines over a decade of experience teaching yoga with deep knowledge of the nervous system and extensive training and work as a Certified Professional Coach through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). Through her Fortitude & Flow® Process, Audrey guides individuals and groups through a holistic experience to shift the way they approach themselves and the things that matter to them – for good.

Audrey’s upcoming book You’re Not Perfect — And Here’s How to Deal With That teaches people how to tap into their unique Operating System to un-velcro from the status quo and reclaim their agency. She leads a virtual membership collective that works with the lunar calendar called Renew, which prioritizes healing, rest, self-care, and community. Her 1:1 work with clients in Emerge reconnect and heal their relationships with their Operating Systems through intensive support and custom-designed practices.

Audrey’s work pushes back on the spiritual bypassing and mindset-is-everything narrative that is rampant in the coaching and wellness industry. Perfectionism is a manufactured distraction designed to keep people from reclaiming their energy and agency while upholding Systems of Oppression. It’s time for something new.
