Foot School

This is an updated version of a post from 2012. I created a “foot movement” lesson plan for my niece and nephew six years ago. When asked to teach some natural movement classes for our local school co-op this week, I couldn’t resist dragging it out and expanding it! For those of you out there wanting to increase the movement opportunities for your home or family, or for those looking for movement…

Does exercise require equipment?

Does movement require special exercise equipment? It doesn’t. In fact, you likely have everything you already need to get started. Exercise equipment is great, but it’s usually not a requirement. In fact, you probably have great stand-ins lying around your home. Equipment designed for movement definitely has benefits: it can help us move, or move us, in very specific ways. Most importantly, exercise equipment likely sends us a signal to exercise. When…

So, thinking on all of this—that it’s September, and I want to go…

This is the first year I’ve put a garden to bed. Not surprising, as this is only the second year I’ve had a garden. When it comes to gardening I really don’t know what I’m doing, but (also not surprising) I’m going for it anyway.

The Books I’ve Written

I’ve written numerous books (eight, at this point) and I’m often asked “Which book should I read first?” This question is difficult to answer because we’re all in a unique place physically, have individual foundations of knowledge, and have different reasons for reading.
