Ep 139: A Podiatrist Transitions Footwear from Cure to Cause

That means we ask a lot of our feet because our feet bear the brunt of our body weight. And whether you’re new to movement, an athlete, a young adult or a goldener you must prioritize keeping your feet as strong as you can (perhaps through the use of minimal footwear). Why? Because a significant portion of your lived experience depends on them! --PRE-ORDER your copy of RETHINK YOUR POSITION Reshape Your Exercise, Yoga, and Everyday Movement, One Part at a
