Movement in a new light

Love the way Katy describes movement in a way that I never considered. Can almost picture her moving as she talks about it. Good podcast to listen to while, well, moving. Highly recommended.

Katy changed my life

If I hadn’t found this podcast, I’d probably not be stopped on the street with questions about my funny shoes. I’d probably still be sleeping in a bed. And I’d probably still have back pain, shoulder pain, and a narrower world view. Thanks!

Refreshing podcast

Katy is incredibly knowledgeable in her field and beyond. She has emphathy which helps her be inclusive in her communication. I love hearing the "why" of things and she does a fantastic job explaining it. Love her work and enjoy listening to all of her podcasts. Also, I loved having Dani on the earlier podcasts.
