Description

Is your foot posture and foot instability causing power leaks and incresing your risk of pain and injury?


Do you want to experience less lower limb pain and injury for yourself or your clients?


Do you want to improve your performace and efficiency by improving your "foot fitness"?


What most people dont understand is how our modern day conveniences such as shoes and chairs impact our bodies and the way we move. Our posture and natural way of moving, are often neglected and altered. This leads to your body adapting and compensating un-naturally which results in misalignment, power leaks and eventually pain and injury.

It is not complicated to avoid this eventual pain, it is about going back to basic movement patterns and building stability from the ground up.


Stop being 'SLACK' and start supporting yourself!

We live in a world where people want a quick fix for their aches and pains. In the podiatry world that bandaid is Orthotics. I recognise that bandaids are sometimes needed short term to treat symptoms, but The Barefoot Movement's philosophy is about building a body that supports you, not a body that needs support. The Barefoot Movement is about resetting and reconnecting you to your foundations.


Do you want to know how to to reset, reconnect and build strong, stable foundations?

After years of working as a Podiatrist and Pilates instructor, The Barefoot Movement's 'SLACK' method naturally evolved. It's as simple as:

Strengthen - Build strength in the muscles that control your posture

Lengthen - Create Mobility and natural range of motion in your joints, muscles & tendons.

Align - Learn to naturally align your foundations

Control - Take control of how your body moves.

Keep it up - Maintain your body so it can support you and your lifestyle.


Our feet are made to be used and if you look after them they will easily support you throughout your active life.

Feet are actually pretty amazing! Think about how much time you spend on your feet and how much you rely on them. The great news is that if you have neglected your feet, it is not too late!!! At the Barefoot Movement we have worked with thousands of pairs of feet, and it never ceases to amaze me how much of a positive impact it can make when people start using and rebuilding their feet and bodies like they were designed to do.


Join Paul from The Barefoot Movement as we explore why your feet are becoming weak and how your body is overcompensating for this problem. Learn why so many people have issues with their foot stability and why too many people are being steered towards structured shoes and orthotics.

Improve your athletic perormance through stabilising the feet and learn how to maximise your biomechanical advantage.


What is the Barefoot Movement Workshop?

A 1-day hands on exploration of The Barefoot Movement principles and exercises where we learn what is altering your foots "normal" function. Find out what is causing 'leaks' in your performance, pain and injury and what you can implement to maintain healthy, "fit" feet.



What will I Discover?

  • How the Barefoot Movements’ “SLACK” method can restore your Body’s natural movement patterns
  • Foot, Gait and movement assessment 101
  • Understand the movement patterns needed for a healthy gait pattern
  • Problem solve for pain and dysfunction in the lower limb
  • Fix poor mechanics that cause inefficiency and cause power leaks to performance
  • Exercises to restore mobility, strength and motor control.
  • Effective individual and group barefoot training programming
  • Learn how footwear can alter your biomechanics and what you can do about it



Why is this for me?

The foot is one of the most used, yet most under rated part off the body. Whether you are looking to improve performance, reduce pain or simply be proactive with your health - then this is a must.

A dysfunctional foot can cause a ripple effect through the whole body, including foot pain, knee pain, back and hip pain, as well as balance issues and inefficiencies in movements causing exercises to be harder or require more energy than "normally" required.


As much as everyone is an individual, these are some of the benefits you can experience if you take on board The Barefoot Movement methods:

  • Increased balance and muscle balance
  • decreased aches and pains,
  • improved performance and agility,
  • resetting a natural walking style
  • improved posture and the muscles that support that
  • reduced load and stress on joints and ligaments
  • better alignment,


What to bring & things to know:

  • All you need are some comfortable clothes for exercising (the exercises will be practiced barefoot so any shoes will do).
  • Lunch is not included, however, we will have tea and coffee available.

  • Pack a pen and notebook if you want to take notes on the day


We look forward to seeing you at this fun, interactive workshop to learn how to stabilse your feet and create awareness and alignment through your everyday movments.
