In this podcast interview we explore the causes and consequences of the body/mind disconnect and what that means for people on the way to improving their fitness.
“In this conversation, Chandler and Carl talk about many topics, including functional fitness and natural movement, movement habits and coaching, and the connection of embodiment work and the environment.”
"What is the intersection of body, being, and environment? How do we move ourselves and our students into the places that are uncomfortable but inevitably a part of the beautiful whole?
Being fully present with your students. Drawing them back into themselves. This was a large part of what James and I chatted with Chandler Stevens about and although the conversation was a collision of a lot of topics we’ve ruminated on in past shows, it’s completely NEW and fresh and inspiring.
There’s something in his voice that gives you a sense of his steadiness, his curiosity, his dedication to self-knowing, exploration, and being of service. It will draw you in and keep you. This is one of those episodes that leaves you with a deep sense of calm and makes you want to pause. You’re going to love it!"
"A rambling chat between Mark and movement and personal growth coach Chandler on BJJ< deep ecology, natural movement, making time, purpose, coaching vs. teaching, The Bible, and self care and starting at home."
"On the pod today, we talk about the 3 pillars of mobility, and how you can unlock yours, coaching without dictating, why coaches need coaches, and much more!"
"This rapid-fire interview revolves around connection of body and mind, people and place. The goal is to make magic at the intersection of movement, conversation, and awareness."
"The first step towards making any type of change is bringing awareness to the situation. Awareness provides you the “dignity of a choice” something that way too often we feel like we don’t have when it comes to our health. I promise you Chandler's awareness methodology will be beneficial for anyone looking for greater freedom in their bodies!"
"If you’ve ever been interested in the new movement movement (lol), evolutionary biology, or curious about how you could improve your joint pain, give Chandler some of your time. There are actually quite a few practical nuggets you could start implementing today. We talked about Gestalt psychology, the death of his “conventional” career goals, and how he became a successful online coach."
"What I love the most is that I believe movement to be an inextricable part of our human experience. I mean its woven into our language for god sakes, for example we take a stand, embrace challenge, or juggle responsibilities. I think movement is how we literally and figuratively connect to life."
