Welcome back to the Evolve Move Play Podcast!

Today we’ve got Simon Thakur joining us again to talk about some of the deeper aspects of movement practice.

How do we adapt our practice as we age? What is the relationship between discipline and culture? How can the practice of movement nourish more than just our physical bodies, and bring us into deeper accord with the sacred?

And those are just a few of the topics we’ll be exploring, so I hope you’ll join us for this fascinating conversation. If you enjoy the show, please be sure to like, subscribe, and share with your friends.
