PMR #298: How your eyes, breath, and mood impact your your posture, performance, and body mechanics, with Posturepro founder Annette Verpillot show art PMR #298: How your eyes, breath, and mood impact your your posture, performance, and body mechanics, with Posturepro founder Annette Verpillot

Paleo Magazine Radio

Our guest on the show today is Annette Verpillot, Canadian posturologist and founder of Posturepro. Annette is here to blow our minds about the causes of bad posture and give us some simple ways to address them. Posture has been defined as the maintenance of correct tension between flexors and extensors against the pull of gravity. Her perspective on how this balance is maintained looks a lot further than sitting upright though. According to Annette, the brain is actually the main cause of poor posture. It often finds itself processing a faulty sensory input and then responding by misdirecting...

Paleo Magazine Radio

Joining us on this week’s episode is Sabrina Wieser, German-born but New York-based marathon runner and coach who is known online as Running Brina. Growing up in a small hometown meant that Sabrina had never considered running as an option before moving to The States. New York’s flourishing running culture captured her imagination though, and she ended up falling in love with the sport. On top of being a sub-four marathoner with a massive online following, Sabrina is also very serious about lifting. We are lucky to have her on the show today to talk about - you guessed it - all things...

PMR #295: How to eat, drink, and be merry (and healthy) this holiday season show art PMR #295: How to eat, drink, and be merry (and healthy) this holiday season

Paleo Magazine Radio

The approaching holidays bring with them various temptations synonymous with this time of year. Rather than restricting yourself, we think you should indulge! Sensibly, of course. This is because the holidays are about so much more than being regimented about diet and exercise. They are about spending time with people you love. For many of us, it is easy to be disciplined or go off the rails completely, but this holiday season does not have to be either-or. Ashleigh reads Melissa Hartwig’s article, Eat, Drink and Be Merry, where she discusses the three reasons it is not a good idea to begin...

Today, Ashleigh reads Chris Kresser’s latest article from Paleo Magazine, titled How to Combat Seasonal Depression. The article discusses a variety of SAD related topics, such as the causes and symptoms, the most well-studied ways to combat it...

Paleo Magazine Radio

Today we are so happy to welcome posture specialist and Rolfer Sukie Baxter onto the show. Sukie discovered Rolfing while she was in college and talks about how it changed her life forever by helping her flexibility, posture, injuries, and the comfort level in her body. It even lifted her mood and anxiety levels. Sukie’s main message today is that when it comes to dealing with pain, posture, and proper body alignment, it's not about having a rigidly straight body every minute of the day. Rather, we should become more aware of bio-individuality, the fact that we’re dealing with different...

Chomps sticks are all grass-fed and finished, Certified Humane, paleo-friendly and even in some cases, AIP friendly. Today we talk about the business side of providing healthy products to the world, gendered food association and women as...

Our feet are incredibly sensitive, and they play a central role in fully experiencing the world outside, which makes wearing bulky and inhibiting shoes seem strange indeed. Today’s guest, Steven Sashen, is the co-founder of Xero Shoes, and he is here to talk more about how his designs can lead us closer toward experiencing the wonder of going barefoot more often. After dealing with ongoing sprinting injuries for many years, Steven’s friend recommended running barefoot.
