Throughout the episode we chat through Katie’s barefoot journey and the role her childhood played in that, the fascinating comparison between horse shoes and human shoes and the importance of context with both, the power of listening to and learning from our bodies signals and how exercise can become a keystone habit to support other aspects of health.

    Down Under | Rope Flow, Mindfulness & Sustainability

    This week I’m joined by Pablo Lagas who is the founder of Winding Ropes, which is a Melbourne based company that supplies specially made ropes of different weights and materials that are an amazing play-based tool that can help you learn how to integrate your foot, core and hip function with different upper body movement patterns that relate really well to things like walking, running, throwing and jumping - basically they teach you how to utilise the rotation of your body to efficiently generate force, which is obviously essential for improving performance and minimising injuries, especially in sports and athletics. 
    Check out Winding Ropes' website for more or follow Pablo on instagram.
