#1 - Master the Hollow Body Hold to Move Like a Gymnast
#2 - You Can Squat...Now What?
Owning the flat-footed squat is kind of like a choose-your-own-adventure-book. From mobility and strength to coordination, the squat sets you up to develop a broad base of athleticism. Now that we’ve established how to go about finding comfort in the flat-footed squat, I want to share a few ways to continue your progress. Think of your squat as home base. You can explore quite a bit from there. How far you take it is entirely up to you.
#3 - Transform Your Mindset to Transform Your Body
This article is for those who have been told that you need to stop running because running is bad for your knees, and for those of you that have been told that you need to take it easy because your favorite sport is too “high impact”, and for those of you who have been told that your hip pain is due to old age. Consider for a moment that maybe your ailments are not due to wear and tear, or old age. Use the mindset check assignment at the end of this article to begin to explore new ways of thinking that empower healing and freedom within your body.
We all have the same innate abilities within ourselves to heal, and the mind is the most powerful vehicle for facilitating this process of healing within ourselves.
