IMG_0028
In Step One, we covered some reasons people might want to go barefoot and how to overcome the fears and social barriers that might get in the way. In Step Two, we delved into what it’s really like going barefoot (outside your home!) and what to expect out of it. In Step Three, we’ll talk about finding and building community with other barefooters, including hearing from our special guest, Chris Fielding of Barefoot Beginner.You’re not alone! In this webinar, we’ll talk about the challenges of isolation and rejection that can occur as a result of taking this less trodden path, but more importantly how to get support in taking on this challenge through existing communities, both online and in your local area. Chris will share with us his experiences how he has gone about creating his own flourishing online community to connect those wishing to learn with those seeking to teach them.We’ll all be answering questions again live at the end. (Be sure to add yours in the Q&A app, either in advance or during the event, and vote on your favorite questions!)Know someone you’d like to share more about barefooting with? Feel free to invite friends and family!

Inochi Spa & Barebottoms™

With all the cold weather and dangerous snow conditions many have experienced this winter, most of us have spent more time indoors and sitting around than usual.  It’s possible we are not walking or working out as often either. Our body still needs to be strong so it’s even more important to focus on our posture and strengthening our feet…the foundation of the body.

Barefoot Running?

We want to share information with you about the research about being barefoot, at least some of the time, so you can decide for yourself. Before I started going barefoot 3 1/2 years ago, I had been wearing padded running shoes since back in the 1970’s when we were told it would help us to run faster, be stronger and help avoid injuries. Over the years, I had countless injuries and now as a barefooter, I have almost none!
