In this episode of the Ascend podcast, Sebastien Foucan joins us for a deep and inspiring  conversation Sebastien describes movement as a journey and you just let your body and mind play in sink together, he describes it as musiccality, he wants us to Re-invent how we think, how we move & what we thought was possible 

Sebastien Foucan is the founder and pioneer of Freerunning. Sebastien has a deep belief in the philosophies of freerunning and its connection with natural environment  and seasons of the year. Well known for being part of the iconic opening scene on top of a crane in James Bond’s Casino Royale, Sebastien is also an accomplished inspirational speaker. He is a global ambassador for the Freerunning discipline  and has established his own Foucan Freerunning Academy to pass on his ethos and skills. Prepare to be inspired to incorporate some of these practices into your own life
