This is a place to inspire and inform mothers from any stage, and to chat about the trials and tribulations of moving your body after having your kids. I’ll be speaking to coaches, instructors, and trainers plus athletes and adventurers who all work with mothers in some way and also happen to be mothers themselves.
This isn’t about perfection, standards or achieving, this is a conversation about how to make the best of the rest of our lives through a nourishing relationship with our bodies and minds.
This week I spoke to Alex Feechan, CEO and Founder of Findra an outdoor clothing company based in Scotland. Originally a knitwear designer with a love of mountain biking, Alex realised the clothing on offer to female mountain bikers was woefully inadequate and insulting, the “pink it and shrink it” method just didn’t cut it. So Alex decided to do something about it and designed her own range of merino clothing which was flattering, functional and not pink!
This is the 3rd episode in the mini series exploring the barriers clothing options may cause to women taking part in sport, exercise or movement choices. Do listen in to all 3 to hear more from different entrepreneurs who are changing the way we are served by companies making clothes for women.
