Welcome to Motion Monday’s. A Monthly update – Motion Monday’s is a little list of a few things I’m digging right now that are keeping me growing and learning both as a human being and a therapist.
What I am reading at the moment: Move Your DNA, Restore Your Health Through Natural Movement by Katy Bowman. A great view of human movement and how we actually don’t move enough. From our pillows to our underpants – Katy explains how simple restrictions can cause issues with our movement.
What I’m learning: controlling the pelvis during a back squat. I’ve been very slack in my control of anterior & posterior tilting of my pelvis. Controlling the pelvis pre-squats has really helped me maintain form for all reps.
Podcast listening: Tim Ferris episode #24 – Kevin Rose, Gut Bateria, Meditation, Startups, and More…creating behavioural change.

Welcome to Motion Monday’s. Motion Monday’s is a little list of a few things I’m digging right now that are keeping me growing and learning both as a human being and a therapist.
What I am reading at the moment: Born to Walk – James Earls. The ability to walk upright is often something all of us take for granted. James explores the mystery of our evolution by describing in depth the mechanisms that allow us to be efficient in bipedal gait. I highly recommend this for therapists wanting to learn more about how people place themselves in this world.
What I’m learning: Anatomy Trains Structural Integration for Manual Therapists – focus on long term structural change.
Podcast listening: Tim Ferriss episode 24 Kevin Rose – Gut Bacteria, Meditation, Startups and More…putting a new spin on meditation and how to control certain behaviours for the better.
Movement rocking my body: progression to crow pose, balancing in this position can be a bit testing!
Who I’m following at the moment: Kaisa Keranen @kaisafit – shows you there is no excuse not to move, definitely check her out if you’re bored with the regular gym routine and you’re looking to move a little bit more!
Quote of the month: “Let the improvement of yourself keep you so busy that you have no time to criticise others” Roy T Bennett!
Have a great week guys!
