Had to have one of my favourite humans on the show for a second time. As I move deeper into my personal work with Benny Ferguson I wanted him to dive deeper into the unique and potent movement principles that he teaches. Through his teachings people all over the world move beyond movement fads and find a system that gives them access to releasing tension, increasing mobility, embodying strength and cultivating flexibility; all in a way that works uniquely with their body. With a focus on understanding gravity and how it flows through the body Benny and I go deep into the physiology and intention evolutions that come with developing a personal practice that leads to a body that is tension free and ready to engage with life in a dynamic and personalised fashion. Strap yourselves in and be ready to take your movement practice to another level as we chat and laugh our way through a beautiful discussion about movement and the human body.

NOTE: If you wish to skip my ranting intro talking about the media and pro-vaccine mob we had come down on us during the tour… skip to 30mins in. 

In this interview we dive into:

  • Our past gobsmacked stance on fascia and how we’ve integrated it into our lives since the first interview.
  • How to reclaim natural human qualities that have been lost.
  • Understanding the capacity of the nervous system to communicate information and how to enhance this.

  • How to set multidimensional boundaries for your body, mind and spirit.
  • Merging intention with physical practice.

  • Releasing the tissue to gravity to restore tissue flow, strengthen joints and develop springiness.
  • Fortifying tissue and joints now so that you may reduce injury in the future.
  • Opening and closing the joins.
  • Embodying animal like movement into human physiology without buying into the current animal movement trend.
