🐾Walking with Barefoot/Toe shoes benefits the body in various ways. Think about it logically- feet weren’t designed to be in stiff-shoes, especially not the elevated-heel shoes we have today. Walking barefoot or with barefoot/Toe shoes has so many benefits like:
-
💡Strengthen Feet & Legs to Avoid Injury.
Supportive and cushioned shoes encourage the wearer to land on the heel of the foot when walking or running, as the shoe absorbs the impact. This alters the natural step and posture and creates a different walking pattern.
It also limits our natural movement patterns and causes our muscles and range of motion to atrophy over time. Watch a baby or small child squat down and try to imitate it 👶🏼 Children can squat with butt to heels while maintaining a neutral spine. Most adults can’t. Barefoot/Toe shoes have a flat minimalistic sole and allow natural walking: 🙌🏼 Not landing on your heels instead land on your middle foot and roll over to your toes 🙌🏼
-
💡Allow free movement for your toes and allow natural walking & running.
Stiff shoes squeeze your toes together so that they become passive and your sensitivity decreases. Your feet also adjust to the shape of your shoes and then it comes to this unnatural toe position you see in “normal feet” image 👆🏼
-
💡There are literally hundreds of benefits but bottom line is: CARE ABOUT YOUR FEET 🙏🏼 They are the fountain of yourself and you use them everyday. My recommendation is getting a pair of barefoot or toe shoes (or both) learn how to walk naturally (sounds stupid but I had to re-learn it myself). For sources I recommend the book: Move your DNA by Katy Bowman or just type into YouTube “benefits of barefoot shoes” and watch a few videos. I only own barefoot and Toeshoes and I’m barefoot very often and I recommend the same to you for those healthy feet gains 🐾💚

Working on comfortably (and gracefully 😂) moving my body through space and over obstacles. It's amazing the movement skills we lose as we get older and quit playing. I'm excited to start adding this facet of training into our workouts! #movnat #parkour #dailymovement #moveyourdna

Those were this morning's work out weights. Lucy and I summoned our inner grandma and had a blast at the condo's daily water aerobics class. Who knew noodles could be such a challenge! We had so much fun together and it was fun to do something so different from what I'm used to. The joy of moving in our body can translate into a million activities; hiking, walking, Zumba, Crossfit, cycling, running, swimming, yoga- it's all good. Use the body you've been given and it will serve you better. It will be happier and in turn YOU will be happier. I'm so thankful that moving is part of what we were designed to do. #sograteful #moveyourdna #spearheadstrong #mobilitycoach

Wanna see what I'm doing with these beauty new rocks I got for my birthday? (Also, how well do my clients know me??!). Foot mobility isn't just about your feet - it's also the key to your hips and pelvic floor. Our feet are one of the weakest links in the modern movement chain and they're SO IMPORTANT. So finding ways to do the work that may not be the most fun and takes the longest is also SO IMPORTANT.

Which is why I love stepping back and forth on rocks. It's a really simple way to mobilize your feet that you can do any time, any where. I've posted about it before because is my #newobsession. If your feet aren't ready for rocks, place them on a soft squishy surface like a blanket or a folded towel. That'll make them more approachable - the softer, the easier.

Rocks are better than balls because they give you more variety and variety is Queen when it comes to moving your body better. But by all means use a ball instead. Walking barefoot is best of all but if your life doesn't give you many chances to practice, this is a great alternative/preparation. #rocksrock

We took some early morning family pictures at a nearby park. This 9 foot rock wall was just calling my name. So yes, I kicked off my shoes and climbed to the top. No other adults cared to join me but my daughter did and that made me proud. 😊 #moveyourdna #movemore #rockclimb #healthcoach

Some days you just get curious about what your body (also: you) can do. Luckily there are opportunities to explore just about everywhere you look 👀

When your movement room is the same as your living room, when living means the same as moving because movement IS life. How ironic that a "living room" is commonly a place where we sit still for hours, casting ourselves in sofas and eating at a table in chairs. I celebrated my birthday yesterday and this is what our dinner time looked like.

Friends! It happened. I heard my own voice on #KQED this morning! A little nerdy piece about hand/body health. 👆🏽link in bio!
Shout out to @nutritiousmovement - aka Katy Bowman - who I mentioned in my #perspective. Bowman's books about moving our bodies, along with @yogatuneup - aka Jill Miller's - #rollmodelmethod have helped me heal all sorts of overuse injuries from teaching fitness, dancing, and just generally being human. If you're curious to learn more - check 'em out! 💪🏽🤸🏽‍♂️✌🏽 #bodynerd #tuneupfitness #yogatuneupballs #yogatuneup #fitness #hands #mobility #moveyourdna #kqedperspectives #npr #magica

Monday was brutal, I did stair sprints and calisthenics for 4 hours, sprinkled with some ball throwing drills trying to get my left hand to throw as intelligently as my right. Tuesday was laches, muscle ups, fighting monkey topple blocks, and swimming laps. Today was a 10 hour day doing tree work with Infinity Tree Service. I climbed and cleaned three 100 ft Doug firs and a 40 ft maple. Also dragged brush and hauled buckets. I am already feeling the ache and am covered head to toe in dirt and mosquito bites, but I'm also happy as a clam. Turns out working hard with good people and seeing the fruits of your labor at the end of the day is pretty nutritious. .

In case you're wondering how I got my original hippie vibes, they came from my grandmother originally (you know, when they had to do a lot of this stuff), and my mom in her footsteps to an extent. When things like the microwave and USDA food pyramid came out (ugh), they gradually stopped doing quite so much naturally, but I still have so much to learn here. I remember sifting through this book as a kid and thinking how cool it was, but I had forgotten until I saw it on my Mom's shelf the other day. She said I can study it but need to give it back. 😂 .

Anyways, it was given to her by my Aunt and Uncle...Two years before I was born! The info inside is surprisingly still awesome and accurate. .

So if I want to do anything from raise chickens and ducks (yes!) to build my own house (nope!), all the info is here. Foraging, herbalism, making your own beauty products, gardening and preserving, fermenting, and picking out the best wood stove all here. Same with rug making, spinning, and weaving (which my grandma still does occasionally when my grandpa can thread the loom for her- she did everything from shearing the wool to spinning it into yarn to dying it to knitting it. How's that for #movementmatters?). So much more is in here, but it's ironic that I needed to learn it mostly online or in books when I had this great resource as well as at least one generation (granted we're not close sadly) that could just teach it to me from memory. .

Do you have any trades or skills you've been passed down from family?

Another step toward improving my overall mental wellness was trying yoga. While yoga might not be be your thing, the point is to MOVE your body! Dance, walk, climb a tree, squat, run, play tag, lift weights...do what feels good to you. The mind, body, and spirit are all connected so all three parts must be aligned for total #wellness. I first tried yoga in college and I hated it 😑i had no idea WTF I was doing, my mind was going a million miles per hour, and I was annoyed at the instructor for it. Then several years later I lost somebody close to me. I was searching for something to help get me through my grief. I was ready to give yoga a second chance and I am so grateful that I did. Through yoga I learned how to quiet my mind, connect with my body, identify areas of tension, breathe properly, and just be present, among other things. #health#positivepsychology#love #mentalhealthiswealth #abundance #giveandreceive #wellness#yogi#positivity#consciousness#moveyourdna

Move with me! You don't need to be on a yoga mat or in running g shoes to get moving! Let's break the mold on movement!

Pardon the shaky camera skills but here's today's attempt to "stack my life" with family time and self-care time. My son is napping so my momma and I are doing some restorative yoga. She'll probably yell at me for posting this. 😏😬😜

I had 3 hours of testing that I had to wait on, so I was walking laps around the hospital and I found a water fountain with high ledges I could jump on for a little extra work 👍🏼🤘🏼💪🏼

A few clips from some of my outdoor practices this morning. Sweet breezes make for great, long sessions. #movenat #moveyourdna #gooutside #wildsiderediscoveryours

After spending 6 intense years on the hunt for understanding and remedy for my scoliosis, I have come to 4 main sources from which I believe the conditions originate. Having gone through over 15 healing modalities from both the East and the West, I have found that diet, bowel health, emotional and spiritual balance, and foot health are the primary puzzle pieces that when addressed, can yield tremendous improvement to ones whole body and being. Finding foot health on the list may surprise some of you at first glance, but if you take the time to check out some of the resources that I recommend to my clients, you would quickly begin to understand the incredible link between ones foot health and posture. After all, feet are the foundation! Thanks to @joenimble for this great depiction of what modern footwear has done to most people's feet these days! If the muscles in the feet can't move properly, neither can the muscles in the legs. If the leg muscles cannot move properly, they get pulled out of alignment due to the tension and tightness, which can pull the pelvis out of alignment, and then the spine. Of course, this is only one piece of the puzzle, but I've found it to be absolutely vital in ones healing process. Scoliosis is an environmental disease. Ones mental, physical, and spiritual environments all play into the development of this disease, and of course, genetic weakness and inherited obstruction as well from the parent. Check it out for yourself on my website! Link in bio. Also make sure to check out @nutritiousmovement and her wonderful books on foot health, natural movement, and posture! Happy healing! #scoliosis #posture #katybowman #wholebodybarefoot #moveyourdna #barefoot #spinehealth #scoliosisawareness #scoliosisstrong #vegan #mucuslessdiethealingsystem #mucuslessdiet #drrobertmorse #alignment #kyphosis #detoxification #regeneration #fruitarian #fruitbased #plantbased

So this happened.....might just look like a log to a lot of people, but I've been wanting this for a while. We had a tree that had to come down, and instead of cutting it up for firewood, my husband saved it so I could have a balance beam 😊😊😊. Right now I can walk across it and turn around to walk back. But with it right here handy in the yard, I'll be able to walk backwards with no hands, and do split squats across it in no time. Bonus - my calluses in my feet aren't developed enough to walk across the gravel driveway, so I have to duck under these tree branches to get to it. #gooutside #moveyourdna #movementmatters #movnat #progressnotperfection
