(5-5:30) The Art of Barefoot Running and Walking
James Joyce once said : “A man’s errors are his portals of discovery”. I have made all the running errors in my life. Medical training is void of evaluating, preventing, and rehabilitating running injuries. The little we did learn was always based on treating a symptom and not the cause. We call this model “palliative” medicine. Learning the names of the bones and muscles and tendons of the foot give us little insight into how this remarkable biological machine actually works. Indeed, the foot—the least understood of all moving body parts—is the orchestrator and foundation of all motion. The foot is perfectly designed for its most important functions: absorbing shock, sending signals to maintain stability, and forward propulsion. Together we will learn how to retrain your foot and movement pattern and become reborn to run and walk as you once did as a child without shoes. Most important you will rediscover the joy of getting in touch with the ground.

(Workshop followed by an optional barefoot run.)

As Essential as Brushing Your Teeth: The Deep Squat
The squat was a way of life before it became a form of exercise or competition. There is controversy around who is a candidate for deep squatting. This movement session is a blend of education, mobility and free form movement that seeks to lift up the deep squat beyond the confines of the gym, and rather as a fundamental pattern for longevity, joint hygiene and quality of life for all people. By the end of the session, you will leave with a heightened awareness of your personal movement patterns and be able to diversify your workout routines.
