    142 Christopher Bourke: Movement for Mental Health

    Kathryn and Christopher talk about what mental health is and how it feels, as well as using movement to support mental health and the topic of safety. They discuss how mental health does not equal happiness, which was interesting. Together they unpack what a safe practice might look like and how it's really challenging for a teacher to ever know what is completely safe. They reference the Polyvagal Theory, and Christopher brings his unique perspective as a teacher and mental health worker.
