147: Ido Portal - It's Never Too Late To Start Moving • Find Your Tribe • Don't Stop Playing

Ido Portal has always been obsessed with the physical.

His obsession isn't with a specific discipline such as martial arts or strength... his passion is movement.

After searching around the world for movement teachers Ido came up dry and decided to become the person he was looking for.

Over the years he's traveled the world both teaching and studying from a variety of teachers: from osteopaths, manual therapists and MD's to professional dancers, yogis, athletes, circus performers, and fighters.

Ido's workshops became very popular and he conducts a yearly event, The Movement Camp.

A community and culture developed around his ideas but more importantly around movement - movement culture.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Ido's childhood
