Kathryn sits down with Linda, her friend, student, general good human and podcast regular, to talk about how we see, feel, use and really understand the core body and core strength. This subject is vast and complex and one to which our knowledge base is continually evolving. Their conversation covers everything from training to simply breathing, conventional perspectives of core versus a fascial body core, nervous system and tissue adaptation, and tension – why its not all about letting it go!
