Rekindling the power of the practice - Episode 101 - Carl Paoli

weMove Podcast

Hey there and welcome to the we move podcast.This week we are catching up with Carl Paoli, who was the first person we had lined up to see when we started weMove. For those of you who haven’t heard of Carl, I heard of Carl as a result of his bestselling book Freestyle Connection, What I then found out was that he was coaching gymnastics movements to various action sports athletes and also at the time some of the fittest people on the planet in the CrossFit realm. So he came with a professional pedigree that interested me back in 2015/16 when I was exploring movement over sport.So Chris and I met with Carl in San Francisco that began the start of a connection as we were unknowingly on a similar trajectory for challenging what we had become for we can be.Carle was definitely experiencing, and explaining movement in that way. To move by feel, to understand the foundations, and when, when you understand the foundations, you can go and explore for yourself, and that makes the movement the practice whatever you're doing so much richer.Last year I noticed a turning down of the volume on social media, as many of us did. And I was curious to speak to him then but it didn’t feel the right time so we just let him do his thing. And then this year he posted a few posts that caught my eye and he was talking about this idea of what's beyond the training, why are we training, why are we moving.And that's very much, where Chris and I are with our thoughts, films and directions of conversation so it felt like it could be an interesting conversation to hear his story and perspective of the last year, and moving away from the very things that lit him up in the first place. The movement itself, instead of the nice to have benefits of; success and acclaim.He is always very eloquent in what he's going through, very open and incredibly sincere. And I think that there are some points made that might be would be interesting for people who are questioning where they fit in the world at a moment and how to ignite the spark for movement and training.This is not how to guide, or a telling of anyone that they should do a certain thing. Rather, this is a personal account of Carls experience. Rediscovering His love of movement, and the power and stability of a dedicated daily practice.Carl has always been a very vocal about how the body is our way of experiencing the world around us. And as he says, our bodies are the instrument we use to interface with the external world. So when your instrument i.e. your body is clean and clear (your own definition) how you experience the world around you changes.That's what I take from this conversation anywayEnjoy the podcastAnd if you enjoy it, and you find some value in it, may I make a suggestion that you support the podcast by buying us a coffee, there is a link on our app on our website, and also the link in the bio of our instant, enjoy, and peace.
