Another week is here and another episode of Love Your Enthusiasm is here. My city has started to open back up and the sun shines against the backdrop of a bright blue sky.
This is how I continue. This is what I can do to contribute to the world…this podcast.
But before I get to this week’s podcast, I’d like to share this beautiful recommendation from a former yoga student of mine that used to take my corporate wellness classes many years ago. Laura had just binged on the first three episodes and had this to say:
Hearing from people around the world as I sit hunkered down working from home in my apartment in Chicago, I found something I could relate to in each episode. I learned new nuggets of information and wisdom I can take with me as I work to find my own inspiration and enthusiasm during these difficult times.
I’ve known Kim Johnson since before I was “Britt” and you’ll notice that she calls me “Brittney” throughout this week’s conversation.
I don’t hear my real name much anymore—and when I do, I can’t help but smile. It means this person is either family, an extension of my family, or someone I’ve known so long that they are practically family.
I used to work with Kim at Danceworks, a non-profit arts organization here in Milwaukee. We worked together on the administrative side, we taught at the dance studio, we took each other’s classes, and I watched her perform many times. She is an exquisite human being and one of the best movement teachers I know.
I hope Kim’s podcast, Connection Through Movement, helps you find your own inspiration and enthusiasm.

Connection Through Movement with Kim Johnson
Dance advocate Kim Johnson has devoted her life to movement—and she focuses on sharing that connection through authentic and intentional teaching.
Quitting is not in your vocabulary when you are a dancer—and it’s both good and bad. Kim explores the world of perfectionism and limitlessness, and how she advocates for a mindful and connected approach to movement. She shares a wealth of knowledge for dance teachers, encouraging the need to teach with intention and look beyond the aesthetic point of view.
It’s so important to continue to move, to connect with your world around you—whether that’s people, whether it’s things. I think we all have our favorite landscapes to move in, even if it’s just a stroll. Put me in a forest and I’m a very different person when I leave. Because you’re connected to what’s around you.
