At TFC we believe in a ground-up approach to foot and movement health.

We call this a playshop not a workshop for a reason.

Hosted by Jim Dooner and Nick St Louis from The Foot Collective the aim of this experience is to reconnect you with the joy of movement and empower you with the knowledge and fundamental skills you need to optimise your foot and lower body function so you can live a life full of play and free of pain

Your ticket includes a SoleMate Kit (our ultimate foot restoration and balance training tools) which we’ll explore throughout the playshop, providing a solid foundation for you to develop a thriving relationship with your body - starting at the feet.

Time: 10:00AM - 2:00PM

Location: 4011 N Ravenswood Ave Ste 101, Chicago, IL 60613, USA

 How to find the right shoe for you and transition to a barefoot practice

 Balance training for strength, mobility and active meditation 

 Ground-based locomotives and developmental patterns for coordination and control

TFC Playshop Adelaide - Highly Recommend!

PLAYshop is definitely the right word for it! I can't remember the last time I had so much fun and laughed so much in a learning session. If you get the chance to attend a TFC Playshop - do not hesitate! Book your spot! Since attending I've been incorporating the exercises and play into my daily practice as well as using them in my Pilates client sessions. Big shout out to Jim and Mac for a fantastic afternoon of fun and learning.

Fantastic workshop

I learnt a lot from the TFC playshop. It was great to see how to use the solemate in person. The whole session was engaging and interesting.

Matt Pilcher (Adelaide, AU)
TFC Playshop Adelaide

I thoroughly enjoyed the playshop run by Jim and Mac in Adelaide. It was a great mix of fun and educational activities. The venue was packed with people of all ages. Do yourself a favour and get along to a playshop near you.

Fabiola C. (Melbourne, AU)
Fun and Interactive

Had a great time at the Playshop. The session was super informative and interactive. The games were fun like we were in a playground. Age was not relevant as we could play with anyone in the group. Would recommend The TFC Solemate too. I'm looking forward to implementing some of these small changes in my daily life.

Jenny Hourigan (Melbourne, AU)
A fun way to learn

The playshop was a great way to get together with like-minded people wanting to free their feet and learn from Jim and the team at TFC. To be honest, I didn't think I would be able to participate much post-injury but it caters for all levels and is very inclusive. My injured foot was literally tingling from stimulation (in a good way) later that evening!
