“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”
– George Bernard Shaw

“The majority of our health issues stem from the fact that human beings are the most domesticated animal on the planet. We choose to live in an unnatural environment of our own making that restricts our opportunity to move.

Our physical and mental health depends on our ability to move often, and move playfully.”
-the 5th International Fascial Research Congress, Berlin
