    Reconnecting the body to its Movement - Episode 126 - Dominik Koch

    Hey there and welcome to the weMove podcast .
     
    The next episode in our exploration of the nervous system, this week Chris talks Dom Koch, one of the practitioners we have worked with for many years, about how the nervous system is the governing body for our movements, but when it feels unsafe or from past experiences, it might reduce the number of options available to the body.
     
    The body is always giving you the truth, telling you where you are at. How we respond to that truth is crucial in moving forward.
     
    Do you force yourself to move or do you let your body move into place? Allowing our bodies to move, the body will more likely move in the way you want it to. Forcing anything, never really works.
     
    There is no right or wrong in movement but there are options, many of which might be forgotten, ignored, shut off from due to pain, memory, past experience
     
     Your body will use what it has and deems safe, but it might not be the most efficient. If there is then pain then it creates limitations on how the body can move and in turn how we feel in space, in the environment around us.
     
     Dom’s work is a mirror to remind the users body of movement options and in turn show the body that it has nothing to fear in how it moves and if it feels safe to do so.
     
     Your body will move better when the nervous system feels safe, efficient and energy conserving to do that. He tries to get what is missing, much like the map in the brain that has been smudged and we can’t quite see the path forwards. His work reminds our brains of the paths the body can travel, opening us up to greater ranges of movement and awareness.
     
     He’s a bit of a wizard in our opinion, whether you have long standing pain in movement, or just feel like life is not quite flowing, his skills might just be what is required to get movement and life on a forward path again.
     
     Enjoy the pod, have a listen and remember to share it with someone you feel might get something from it.

    Nervous System Healing - Episode 125 - Irene Lyon

    Nervous System Healing - Episode 125 - Irene Lyon

    The weMove podcast is getting in to the Nervous System, what it is, what it does for us and how we can relearn how we communicate with it to take us from a place of fight, flight, freeze, fawn to a more regulated alert and healthy state giving us back the power to experience life and movement.
     
    We have heard the phrase Nervous System many times and trauma equally as much. The last few years the word trauma has become increasingly used and focussed on. However we have felt being stuck in this place of trauma contemplation was not the place to be, nor was covering our past with experiences that took us away from what we were feeling, be that ice baths, breathing practices, daily training, ointments and potions. None of which are wrong but our bodies tell us what the problem is through these sensations that if we numb them, we cannot feel. And if we cannot feel, then we cannot heal.
     
     Our guest @irenelyon Irene Lyon, MSC. and nervous system expert, teaches people around the world how to work with the nervous system to transform trauma, heal body and mind, and live full, creative lives. To date, her online programs and classes have reached over 9,500 people in over 90 countries. Irene has a Master’s Degree in Biomedical and Health Science and also has a knack for making complex info easy for all of us to understand and apply to our lives. She has extensively studied and practices the works of Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais, Peter Levine (founder of Somatic Experiencing) and Kathy Kain (founder of Somatic Practice). Irene spends her free time eating delicious food, hiking in the mountains or walking along the Pacific Ocean in her hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia.

    Enjoy the show and share the episode with one person who you feel will benefit. Peace from Chris and me (James!)

    The Dairy Farmer - Episode 124 - Sophie Gregory

    The Dairy Farmer - Episode 124 - Sophie Gregory

    Hi there and welcome to the weMove podcast. 

    This episode revisits our farming series ran a few months ago as since then Chris has been documenting in film the farmers and the relationships the farmers have with the land and most importantly the animals on the land. 

    This podcast directly accompanies Chris’s film The Dairy Farmer, hearing how Sophie Gregory became a dairy farmer, her relationship with farming as a business and it’s direct connection to the health of humans. 

    There are many levels to the phrase “we are what we eat”, but we literally are because what we eat, becomes our flesh and blood. It nourishes us with it’s nutrition for good and bad (in direct correlation with the lifestyle the animal/crop has led, think pasture raised cattle who live on the land versus antibiotic filled, synthetic food eating cattle, kept in conditions less than optimal for their health, let alone ours) 

    Eating well is the same process for the food that feeds us, and eating for our health and vitality becomes a simple process when we understand that minimally processed natural food sources that have been raised and grown in conditions which support the land and them, provides the most nutrient dense positive nourishment for mind and body. 

    As Sophie says in the film, “healthy soil, healthy animal, healthy milk/food, healthy human”. It is a simple connected wheel, one that does require us to be aware and mindful of what, where and how our food is raised/grown/produced. 

    You can watch the film on weMove.world, or click the link in our instagram bio. 

    Thanks to Chris as always for making these films, up and out whatever the weather to capture the moments and share the stories of the people and animals who provide our food. 

    Peace.

    Cycling with Emotional Durability - Episode 123 - Universal Colours

    Cycling with Emotional Durability - Episode 123 - Universal Colours

    New podcast up.

    In a sea of brands, I find it more challenging than I thought to find those with genuine energy for inclusivity, united by a true love for the pursuit/movement they practice, in this case, cycling. And Universal Colours does just that.

    So much of creating something is about the intention of choice and this is often ignored because it takes time. Yet there is a great power and transference of energy when intentional decisions in design are made. It can be felt, not necessarily needing to be understood by those who come across it. Some brands just feel right and in an increasingly uncertain world, Universal Colours feel increasingly right.

    We catch up will Inge and Will, the brand and creative leads behind UC. Getting into how and why they started. Where the idea of “emotional durability” fits in, how that idea is transferred from the physical pursuit to the product range itself and what and how they see inclusivity in a sport/pursuit that can be seen as liberating and exclusive in equal measure.

    But whatever mode you choose, getting up and moving, creates powerful connections within our Selves and with others. Because at the end of the day we share more in common than we often like to think. We were born to move.

    Check out UC at www.universalcolours.com and @universalcolours on Instagram.

    RAD Global, it's a vibe - Episode 122 - RAD Global

    RAD Global, it's a vibe - Episode 122 - RAD Global

    Hey there and welcome to the weMove podcast. It has been a while.

    This week's episode is with Ben Massey, the founder, and creator of RAD Global, the new upcoming brand in the fitness and training space. A hybrid of CrossFit, streetwear, and action sports.

    An interesting mix of worlds but authenticated by Ben’s history in the elite training and Crossfit space, having competed at the Crossfit Games a couple of times. A goal of Ben’s since he discovered the sport.

    It was the feeling after competing at the Games that sewed the seeds for RAD, with Ben wanting to create something more, something that gives back and inspires, and a brand seemed like the way to do it.

    No easy feat to start with shoes, they require significant investment to create something that comes up against the big 5 shoe brands and the many after. So, you sell your gym and double down on creating something that can stand alongside the big players.

    And that is what Ben did, from having the idea to tracking down the designer of the shoe in Portland and the brand design team in the UK, he has set about creating RAD and it without a doubt caught my eye. In a world of increasing brands, it was the energy of RAD that stood out. It felt like I wanted them and to train in them. What caught my eye is that it has not played on the idea of the heavy burden that training has been portrayed as, the black and white images of dark gyms where you meet your demons. There is a lightness in spirit to RAD reminiscent of 90’s skating of pure enjoyment however heavy the weights are. A connection to others and that we are all out there doing our best and wanting to give it everything we have and enjoying it at the same time.

    It’s a vibe, and I’m into it.

    Thanks, Ben for your time. Be quick if you want a pair of shoes, they never repeat a colourway and they sell out quick. So follow them and to hear more about Ben’s journey to the games there are some other good pods out there that focus more on that side of things.

    As always thanks for listening and your patience in our hiatus these last few months. Life is happening quickly around us. Check out RAD at RAD-global.com and explore the weMove podcast on Spotify, where we have all our episodes covering a wide range of movement, health, and wellbeing areas, from breath work, to food, health to performance. And give it a share. 

    Until next time, from Chris and I peace.

    High performance with low impact - Episode 121 - Hylo Athletics

    High performance with low impact - Episode 121 - Hylo Athletics

    Hey there and welcome to the we move podcast. 

    We have been away for a few weeks again whilst we waited for our next two pods both of which are a bit more gear based, specifically footwear and the ideas behind the two brands. 

    We love brands, and gear, like we love food and farming and we also love the world around us and these two worlds often times are given a bad rep, but brands like food does have a place in the world. 

    Since the farming series and conversations we are regularly having at our sister platform Commonground, where we work with brands and companies to support their communication to making their customers feel seen, safe and heard. We have been connecting some of the dots as to what is being sustainable, is it even a thing or is there something more appropriate and meaningful brands can be pursuing and integrating. 

    And it is in this context that the next two podcasts are based. Perhaps increasingly the way brands are communicating feels like a cover up for the problems that they create as a result of actions they take. The goal of a fully regenerating and circular production cycle is firmly in a brands mind but the current place they and we find ourselves in is a little way off that destination. So it is about doing the best we can where we are and moving forward towards this goal. Having the awareness that every action has a reaction, and every problem solve will create something that might be a future problem enables a person, company or brand to have a mindset shift in how they perceive their place in the world and their journey forward. 

    Step in Hylo Athletics. That is the essence of the Hylo brand, started by former professional footballer Michael Doughty and a couple of shoe industry veterans to create an active footwear brand using materials science to create products that deliver high performance for athletes and low impact for the planet. 

    Hylo is a year in and as Michael will say, it has not always been a straight forward case of following ideals. The initial models whilst up there in sustainability were not so in longevity, creating a conundrum for brands because longevity for the customer is a key part of making a positive impact. Now Hylo shoes are finding their sweet spot and per pair have 50% less impact on the planet than all other brands out there. Some may say 50% too much, but 100% further on than others. 

    Having just secured a further round of investment, they are set to continue making positive impact, and if that combines with supporting people to move then that is never a bad thing in my book. 

    This week is Hylo, next week is RAD Global. A new footwear startup in a different movement space, but doing equally good things to challenge the stagnant status quo. 

    As always thanks for listening, and if you are feeling in the supportive mood, head to wemove.world and click the orange button in the bottom left corner to buy us a ko-fi or click the link in our insta bio @wemoveworld. From Chris and me, peace.
