Connecting Well-Being Through Movement w/ Aaron

What’s the role of physical education in creating an active culture of well-being? Aaron Beighle, an international mind and physical educator and scholar of school-based physical activity in the United States, joins us on the show as we delve into connecting well-being through movement. In the episode, Aaron shares his passion for fitness and movement, how physical activity boosts your mindset & productivity, as well as different exercises that could be tailored to individual needs. He also expounds on structured versus physical activity, the importance of doing workouts you enjoy to make them sustainable, and how educators can integrate various types of physical activity in remote and physical learning environments. Ultimately, we discuss the role of technology in facilitating physical movement for students, debunking the myth that only certain body types can do sports, as well as advice for educators implementing physical education in schools.
