Dare to go Bare.
Come out to this workshop and discover the healing powers of being BARFOOT. Be a part of this movement to connect with the earth.
Not only will you improve your posture, balance and flexibility, you can help your body to heal itself.
Earthing or grounding allow free electrons to enter our body … through our skin. They are the most powerful antioxidants known and it’s believed they neutralize free radicals to contribute to a natural healing process by reducing inflammation. Wearing shoes with rubber soles has cut us off from this incredible gift the earth has to offer.
Sue Kenney will guide you on a journey to learn how you can integrate this forgotten component of a holistic approach to everyday life.
Benefits of Grounding: • Improves sleep in most cases. • Increases energy. • Lowers stress and promotes calmness in the body by cooling down the nervous system and stress hormones. • Normalizes the body’s biological rhythms. • Thins blood and improves blood pressure and flow. • Relieves muscle tension and headaches. • Lessens hormonal and menstrual symptoms. • Dramatically speeds healing and helps prevent bedsores. • Reduces or eliminates jet lag. • Protects the body against potentially health-disturbing environmental electromagnetic fields (EMFs). • Accelerates recovery from intense athletic activity.

CAMINO AUTHOR INVENTS AND PITCHES BAREFOOT SHOES TO DRAGON’S DEN!
PRESS RELEASE: Camino author pitches barefoot shoes to Dragons Den Testing the Market at Toronto Yoga and Pilates Conference and Show March 22-24, 2013. For Immediate Release Orillia, Ontario (March 15, 2013) – Possibly the first-ever soleless shoes have been designed by Sue Kenney, bestselling author of the book My Camino. Barebottom Shoes TM will be profiled for the first time at the Toronto Yoga and Pilates Conference and Show. Having walked the Camino in Spain a total of 9 times, originally with hiking shoes, Sue Kenney now walks the famous ancient pilgrimage route barefoot. She says, “As soon as I go barefoot I immediately experience the freedom I felt when I was a child.” Sue, an avid bare-footer and yoga enthusiast has been walking and running barefoot for almost two years. Sue has seen improvement in balance, flexibility and strength. Sue scanned the market for a lifestyle shoe that allowed her soles to be bare but she couldn’t find anything so she invented Barebottom Shoes TM and they are unlike any other footwear on the market as they don’t’ have soles. While Sue’s intention is to introduce more people to a new kind of footwear, she claims grounding plays a vital role in a natural approach to healing. It’s a minimalist shoe that represents a simplified life. Perfect for Yoga, Pilates, Nia and great on the beach too Comfortable yet stylish. For every pair of shoes sold 2 wildflowers will be planted in the forest. Barebottom Shoes TM are Canadian and hand-made by artisans Sue Kenney, Marie Ostrowski and Jeannie Fast in suede leather. “We have made 100 shoes and feedback has been astounding. After passing the audition to present a concept idea to the producers at Dragons Den, Sue was chosen to pitch her invention to the Dragons on April 10th , 2013. We won’t know right away if she will be televised, but believes that she has a powerful business case to prove the potential market based on a people/planet/profit model. With over 10 years as an entrepreneur and a keen awareness of the market and the product, Sue is confident when she says, “This footwear will knock their shoes off.” Visit Sue Kenney at Soul to Sole booth #1102 at the Toronto Yoga and Pilates Show at the Metro Convention Centre from March 22 to 24. 30 For more information or to coordinate interviews, please contact: Marie Ostrowski at 705-792-9925 or Sue kenney 705-826-4641.

Tomorrow I pitch my business concept for Barebottom Shoes to CBC TV’s Dragons Den show. It will be filmed and I’ll be talking to Arlene, Bruce, Kevin, David and Jim about this unique business idea. At this point I don’t know if I will be broadcast in the Fall but it’s been a blast going for it! I respect all of them as business people and I believe I have something they will be interested in.
