The Finding Your Freestyle Podcast – Episode 2 – Meditation with Dr. Linick

Thank you for tuning in to our second episode of our brand new series: The Finding Your Freestyle Podcast!

The #FYFpodcast will marinate with our blog and current #freestyledtips and the ongoing #fyfchallenge offerings, but now adding an immersive discussion format to bring in new voices. This podcast is inspired to start a larger dialogue on the art of freestyle (beyond modality and form), and tangential topics of mindfulness, awareness, intention, intuition, creativity, self-expression, and collaboration with interesting folks who are doing their thing in their own way! This podcast will continue to touch back on movement and freestyle practice, but includes the connection between freestyle, in moving form, and the way we can access that freedom in many other life experiences.

Dr. Jess Linick, psychologist and somatic therapist, is our second guest here to talk about meditation, and mindfulness. What is it? What is it not? How do we get started and where else can it go? There were so many fantastic talking points here, I highly suggest you listen – start to finish!
