  • meet @michaeljoseph_music, vancouver based musician, sound engineer, and our latest #rollmodel. he’s had quite the career so far, playing showcases in Toronto, LA and NYC, as well as playing alongside bands like pearl jam, metric, arkells, and wintersleep. he’s recently released his new single, ‘peaks’. you can listen on spotify and apple music, or hit the link in his bio.

1. what do you love most about what you do?

I love the puzzle of putting together a new composition. Whether it happens jamming with a band or building it alone piece by piece in my home studio, I love discovering, shaping, editing, producing and rediscovering until eventually the sound I had in my head comes to fruition. It’s the most exciting, satisfying feeling.

2. how does cannabis fit into your life?

I use it to help calm my mind, relax, take the edge off stressful situations, and help get myself out of my own head every once in awhile.

3. when was the first time you tried cannabis and what did you do?

It was at my old bandmates engagement party, which happened to be the same day as our first jam together. The other guys were a few years older than me, so them including me in both their musical and social circle felt like a pretty good day at that age. meet @michaeljoseph_music, vancouver based musician, sound engineer, and our latest #rollmodel. he’s had quite the career so far, playing showcases in Toronto, LA and NYC, as well as playing alongside bands like pearl jam, metric, arkells, and wintersleep. he’s recently released his new single, ‘peaks’. you can listen on spotify and apple music, or hit the link in his bio. 1. what do you love most about what you do?

  • Special shout-out to @magnum_pei for being a rock, a leader, and a super swell teammate when we needed her, when I needed her.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This year, she really took the Skids’ brain safety culture initiative to heart. She reflected, she led by example, and she contributed as a role model. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We are, on average, a pretty short team height-wise, and we typically play taller teams, and things can get dangerous. We lost one of our captains in game 2 - it was serious. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s the truth that refs will not see every high block or head block, and hits will get missed. We have very little control (beyond asking the refs to be more vigilant) over the positioning or attention of the refs.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As players we can reflect and communicate about it, and endeavour to work #BrainSafetyCulture into our strategies and default skills. Mags really shone in helping us adapt to be more brain-safe in a difficult game where we were on edge, and where we had exhausted all usual avenues, by suggesting some tweaks to our positioning and by essentially offering up her taller stature as a human shield on the track. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
She also created a human shield of kindness and support for me during a dark and difficult emotional chapter in my life. She’s a talented artist and crafter, and I kept her drawing she gave me at my bedside all weekend.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Thanks Mags, for being you, and for being such a wonderful part of this team. You are the anchor in more ways than one. 💖⁣⁣

  • We are thrilled to have YTU Teacher Trainer @mystrengthandmovementpractice as our #teachertakeover for Posture & Performance Month 🚶🏽‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🤾🏽‍♂️ Trust us, you’re going to want to follow every single thing he prescribes:
.
.
“I'm often asked how a movement and self-massage practice helps improve posture, in general. The answer is always, it depends. It depends on a whole host of variables that include, but are not limited to: nutrition, emotional wellbeing, sleep, lifestyle and movement practices. The body is always adapting, and it can be adapting to an active and health lifestyle, or it can be adapting to be as efficient as possible in a sedentary one, and anywhere in between.
.
Working on improving my pelvic position changed my posture in an incredible way. The whole spine has a better chance to find more balance and harmony in its curves. My body, over the years, adapted to a sedentary lifestyle while I worked in an office.
.
When I train this area for strength, I need to roll out my levator scapula and trapezius (among other things). Here's a video of my favourite way to get into this corner if my shoulders react with a sort of continued bracing after my strength session.
.
I generally roll 20 minutes for every hour that I train to help improve my recovery. The Roll Model Method®️ has kept me moving better and recovering better than many 20 or more years younger. I'm a huge believer in this method, that's why I teach it!"

  • Good luck to the Orange High School football team tonight. Here’s the routine we did yesterday to wake up the legs after their two hour bus ride today. Give it a try if you spend more than 30 minutes sitting at your desk today. Do it. Make it NOT weird to take care of yourself at work. Bring life back to your legs *and your brain* because ultimately, we think in “feels”. __________________________________👉🏻Want more tips for living better in your body? There are many ways to work with me. #LinkInBio #Repost @mobilitymama with @get_repost
・・・
The new pre-pre-game is #SelfTherapyLegs or tissue-priming with your hands during that pesky, long bus ride.  ___________________________________👉 Why? Because sometimes the personal masseuse isn’t available 🤷🏻‍♀️or you don’t have #rollmodel method therapy balls handy. Your best #SelfTherapy tools are right at the end of your own two arms. 🤲🏻👐🏻👐🏿🙌🏽👊___________________________________👉 Once you’ve done self massage (shoot for at least five minutes per leg, take your time and close your eyes and really get into it), then stand up and do some air squats and squeeze your butt. Put your mind in there. 🧠 You’ll get some benefit if you’re doing this while talking to your friends but you’ll get way more out of it if you make it a #mindbody practice and really pay attention to what your hands are doing and what your tissues are receiving. Where your attention goes, your energy flows. 🙏🏼___________________________________👉 Then, the minute you get off the bus, STOMP! (please don’t do it on the bus and freak out your bus driver!) Think of this process as the equivalent of rebooting your computer (your brain) and pulling the wires through (waking up your nervous system) all the way down to your feet and back up again for maximum connection and self ownership of your legs. ___________________________________👉 Stomp like you mean it! Make fists, throw your whole body into it even if it means you might fall over like I did!  Better you stumble during pregame than when you really need command of your legs in-play. 💪🏼 ___________________________________👉 And yes, when I say legs,  I also mean massage your butt - your glutes.🙌🏼 Good luck to the Orange High School football team tonight.
