In this week’s episode Hannah and Ali talk all things movement for health. In a world where everyone believes they are a fitness expert especially when it comes to exercise for weight loss, Hannah and Ali knew they had to bring in physical therapist Dr. Lisa Folden. Lisa brings her own experience shifting her relationship with exercise away from a focus on weight loss to embracing her body and the principles of Health at Every Size which makes her the perfect person to help answer all your questions on movement for health. How can I create a balanced relationship with exercise when I normally become obsessed? How does exercise improve your health if weight loss isn’t a goal? Isn’t it true weight loss can help improve joint pain? How do I manage chronic pain without stretching and movement if I’ve been recommended to rest because of an eating disorder? Exercise can be an important way to connect to your body, to improve mood, help with sleep quality and improve some markers of physical health. It is not mandatory nor is it a requirement of living a happy, healthy life. Hannah, Ali and Lisa come together this week to help support you in developing a relationship with exercise that is mindful, happy and joyful...if you choose!
