“There is no fluff in the book. Every piece of information, every little detail, is again practical, it’s really there to help you move better and put that into practice.” — @ErwanLeCorre [0:09:32.4]

“As much as you can and you should have lots of fun, finally allowing yourself to do these movements and have lots of fun in the process but it is also real practice and real practice means also commitment.” — @ErwanLeCorre [0:41:51.9]

“Natural movement is the forerunner of any other physical activity, sport, or discipline. There would be no yoga or tai chi without natural movement. There would be no American football, baseball, basketball, tennis, or any sport without natural movement.” — @ErwanLeCorre [1:00:18.7]
