In this episode, wild woman Michaela Boehm joins us to explore polarity in relationships. Michaela teaches and counsels internationally as an expert in intimacy and sexuality, and she is currently the only counselor in the world personally trained and authorized by David Deida (If you aren't familiar with Deida, definitely check out his prolific work).  Be warned — this interview may push some buttons, as Michaela and I dissect some popularly-held beliefs on happiness and relationships! Our one hour conversation is brimming with nuggets of insight on relationships, intimacy and becoming your best self. Enjoy!

James Earls — author of Born to Walk — talks to us about an important part of the movement conversation: fascia and bipedalism. Fascia is the 3-D spider web of fibrous, gluey, and wet proteins that hold our bones all together in their proper placement (from Anatomy Trains, go here for more details). Bipedalism, as I'm sure you know, is the act of locomoting upright on two legs. In our conversation, we explore James' fascinating knowledge on movement efficiency and how we may have evolved through walking. Episode Breakdown: * How James got into this work * Fascia being ignored for 2k years * What is tensgrity? * Why do dogs seem to move so easily? * Bipedalism * How did we evolve through walking? * Movement efficiency * Ground direction force
