Liberated Body Podcast
Episode 26: Self-Care, Movement Scavenger Hunt, Holiday Giveaway Spectacular!

This being the week of Thanksgiving in the US, I am talking about Liberated Body’s self-care, movement scavenger hunt, holiday giveaway spectacular which kicks off on the facebook group (www.facebook.com/liberatedbody) on Friday the 28th. For 9 days I am giving away my favorite self-care gifts for 2014. Each day we will have a different movement to “find” as many times as possible throughout our day, and whoever uploads the best photo or video will win the self-care goodies of the day! In this episode I explain how it works and what will be given away.


Episode 25: Todd Hargrove: Pain Science and How to be a Happy Mover

Todd Hargrove is talking about what happy movers have in common, how learning better movement is more like sculpture than painting, the feather-ruffling information that posture does not predict pain levels- and how posture still matters and why. We also dig into motor control, cortical maps, the neuromatrix model, and all kinds of wild things about how perceptual tricks affect our brain and our perception of our body which gets us asking, “What is pain really?”. Of course we also discuss what our nervous system wants from us in order to keep it from creating pain and dysfunction in the first place so that we can all be happier in our bodies.


Episode 24: Jill Miller: The Roll Model

 

I talk with Jill Miller, co-founder of Tune Up Fitness Worldwide and creator of the corrective exercise formats Yoga Tune Up and The Roll Model Method about her recent book by the same name (The Roll Model), the current pain epidemic in our culture, why self-care is health care, the difference between good pain and bad pain, and what it takes to remodel your “fascia suit”. We also talk about many of the profound and touching stories of people who recovered themselves through this method, including Jill’s own journey.


Episode 23:  Gary Ward: What the Foot?

I’m talking with Gary Ward who is the founder of Anatomy in Motion, and the author of the book What the Foot?. He talks about how Anatomy in Motion is based on understanding how the body moves- or what the body does and when it does it, why change can happen in minutes instead of months, why Gary is not a fan of stretching, redefining “neutral” as “center”, how we need to learn how to have better posture in a subconscious way, what nobody-ever-moved-me-itis is, and of course, plenty about the feet as the gateway to appropriate movement everywhere else.
