Episode 1: Melanie Chisholm


I’ve learnt to recognise the signs of depression creeping in, and I have a skill set that kicks in to prevent it happening, so I now know to relax, slow down and listen deeply.

As part of the 1990’s most successful band in the world, The Spice Girls, Melanie Chisholm has sold more than 105 million records, of which 20 million as a solo artist. Melanie has performed in the West End and owned her own record company, Red Girl Productions. An iconic part of popular culture and history of music!

In this opening episode, Claire discusses everyday wellbeing, juggling parenthood,   meditation, setting intention and a few funny situations Melanie & Claire have found themselves in over the years. Melanie talks candidly about how she overcomes depression, and stays radiant and down-to-earth. Claire first met Melanie in late 1999, when she was a yoga teacher on her solo tour, where Melanie performed for 76 dates, 30 countries and 4 continents.

Things we talk about in this episode:

  • The ideal tour rider

  • Cooking for Health and wellbeing

  • Mindfulness and creating intentions

  • Parenthood: challenges and raising conscious children

  • Gratitude for financial situation yet maintaining a careful attitude to money

  • Depression: how to recognise the signs and what Melanie does to fend it off
