What people are saying about Play. Full.

Matt Myers is a playful coach and teacher who models playful movement – this book is a wonderful guide to playful living.
— Kate McCormick, Assistant Professor Early Childhood Education SUNY-Cortland
They were still talking about it this morning. I’m on cloud 9 because it was just one of “those moments” that can be hard to find. We just got to PLAY for a change. Not homework, not housework, not some dumb chore, just play. I don’t do that enough with my kids anymore. I’m going to try to fix that.
— Christy Victor, vet, athlete and super mom of three!
This is seriously a resource that everybody who works with bodies needs to get. Matt lays out a story-driven, compelling case for a playful life. He gives us a bird’s eye view of the benefits of play and a fantastic overview of new options for games and a choose-your-own-adventure approach. This is a creative book in the realest sense. He’s inviting us to create a new practice for ourselves, and in doing so he’s providing the perfect sandbox for us to play in.
— Chandler Stevens, Luminal Movement

Remember how you used to play as a kid?  You could run, jump, and tumble in a seemingly limitless fashion.  You didn’t have to think about how to use your body, you just did it.  As we become adults, however, we start to lose that freedom of movement.  Joints stiffen, muscles shorten from too much sitting and not enough play, injuries crop up that scare us off of trying anything new.  It takes more and more effort to do things that we used to do without thought (ex. squatting down to the ground, or playing chase with the kids.)  We often hear the phrase “I guess I’m just getting old.”  And I’m hearing that from a younger and younger population.  But does it have to be that way?

I for one don’t like it. I want to be able to move naturally, to run, to play, to be resilient – to live with vibrant health.  And I want to be able to do this for a long, long time.  I have a feeling that most other people want this too.  The process to recapturing this freedom starts with play.
