Love Your Enthusiasm with Kim Johnson

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.

Listen Now

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.

  1. Love, love, love this podcast…actually listened while walking through my hip strengthening therapy. With Kim sharing her own experiences through all types of movement from her childhood forward, it’s somewhat frightening to see how many children and adults rarely move their bodies except for the barest essentials. One of the basic definitions of “animal” life is voluntary movement. We need to listen to our bodies in regards to injury or aging but also in regards to how necessary it is to keep finding ways to keep moving!!

    1. I agree, Mary Jo. Every morning I have time for myself to move and meditate. Refreshing and keeps the strength going as we move along in our forward journey.

    2. This is the perfect podcast to listen to while you’re moving your body. Kim is so amazing. She knows a ton of information about the body and I was beyond happy to have her on to share her knowledge with others outside of her dance classes.

      It is scary how people move less and less. I know I’m guilty of it too…damn you, computer. Movement is so important, even if we only do a 15-30 minutes at a time.

  2. I’m on it almost as soon as it comes out and I truly enjoy once more every single word pronounced. It’s fun to hear about other people’s experiences, especially when they’re so different from everything I’ve ever done (I’m sooooo not a dancer!).
    Again, a very instructive moment.
    Thanks for putting it live into our ears.

    1. So glad you liked it! It’s good to learn from others. Even if you don’t participate in their specific life passion, you can get a ton of inspiration and information from the guests.

      Happy you’re enjoying the show…and, I’ll say it again…loved your episode!
