Fixing Your Foundations by Slowing Down - Client Case Study with Tiffany Walsh
In this episode, we talk with Tiffany Walsh, an Embodied Breakthrough client who has broken through artificial ceilings and is forming a whole new way of being in the world with her body.Like many others, Tiffany held childhood beliefs of not being cut out for athletic pursuits. But she discovered Crossfit a decade ago, and her ideas of what she was capable of started to change. While putting her body through the paces, she faced recurring shoulder pain that eventually became excruciating and severely limited her everyday activities. She knew that doing nothing wasn’t the answer and that she needed to go back to her foundation. She discovered Embodied Breakthrough and, after her initial call, trusted her gut and committed to herself by signing up for the program. Over the next year, Tiffany had a major mindset shift, learning to be patient with herself and continue to come back to her practice. To slow down and be more gentle with her body. When she eventually started to add more movement back in, she could tell her mindset had changed, and the quality of her movement had improved. She’s developed inner strength and trust in herself. She’s learned to focus on what a movement feels like and enjoying what her body can do, like riding bikes and dancing. Tiffany has redefined strength for herself, and she fully believes that you can too.

Hollie is a passionate human dedicated to overcoming challenges and becoming the strongest version of herself. Hollie is no stranger to challenges. With a family history of arthritis and being told she would suffer the same fate, she felt pain in daily movement from the age of 16, often struggling just to get out of bed in the morning. She stopped going to the concerts she loved because even standing was painful. She shrank her world down to protect her body.She tried it all, from physical therapy to carbon copy gym training, running and yoga. While much of mainstream fitness culture didn’t resonate with her, she stayed persistent until finding Embodied Breakthrough.Now Hollie gets out of bed without aches and pains. She's running completely pain-free, has mastered the deep squat and is feeling inspired to try new things like rock climbing. By fixing her broken foundations and getting her core to work properly again, she is more aware and connected to her body than ever. Instead of her world shrinking, it's now expanding.She started to understand that challenges and obstacles will always present themselves, but we can learn something from each and every one of them, becoming a stronger person in the process.Let Hollie’s story inspire YOU to seek support, overcome your challenges and say YES to yourself.Want to be the next success story?Schedule a breakthrough call and we'll help you figure out exactly what's been holding you back with your body.

The Power of Slowing Down with Rolfing Expert Mary Bond
Physical pain is often the reason people seek out body work, and it can also be the catalyst that leads them to greater body awareness.As we discuss with author and certified Rolfing expert Mary Bond, body awareness is useful in learning your limits and capacities. By slowing down and learning to be present in yourself through your body, you give yourself time for more feedback to take place. We talk with Mary about our movement starved bodies in this digital age, and how our tunnel of awareness narrows with our constant connection to screens. We also get into everything from dancing and aging to somatic resilience and boxing with Parkinson’s.It’s easy to constantly judge ourselves for what our bodies can’t do. But if we remained curious and interested, celebrating our movement capacity right now?Mentioned in Today’s Episode:The Breathing Book by Donna FarhiMary’s booksMary’s websiteMary on IG

Becoming a Better Ally to Your Body
In this episode we explore a very simple question:How can you become a better ally to your body?In order to heal ourselves, to create TRUE strength, we need to heal our relationship with ourselves, with our bodies. We need to dismantle the hierarchy and learn to let the information and signals not just flow top-down from the mind to the body, but bottom-up, from the body to the mind.We need to yes, learn to listen, but also to UNDERSTAND what the body is trying to tell us. To honor and trust its wisdom. To feel more deeply and connect more with our ancestral DNA.If we want our bodies to feel good, we need to learn to listen when they whisper, not just when they are yelling.If you want to dive deeper into these principles, check out www.uncagedhuman.com/workshop for a free training on the five shifts to a pain-free, unbreakable body.
