Join us in person for a Move Your DNA Weekend!
Four words to describe a Move Your DNA Weekend?
Dynamic, Focused, Welcoming, Fun.
Learn how to see the way you’re moving in a more nuanced way! Move Your DNA Weekends are engaging, two-day sessions designed to give you a strong foundation in aligning your body well during a variety of exercises—including walking and squatting—so you can start learning how to be your own personal trainer and guide yourself to moving more with greater ease and less pain. Using 40 exercises from the bestselling book Move Your DNA: Restore Your Health Through Natural Movement as the curriculum, our skillful instructors will help you learn how to fit the book’s exercises to your body. You’ll leave the weekend knowing how to nourish your body with movement, head-to-toe.
Move Your DNA Weekends are limited to 10 students per instructor so you get plenty of individual attention and learn how to fit all our exercises to your body. Three quarters of the course will be on the mat, but you’ll also spend time applying good form to walking, hanging, and introducing your feet to “vitamin texture.” We aim to maximize the fresh air and outdoor experience, because moving together, outside, is what our DNA expects.
Whether you are new to exercise or a movement professional wanting to give more technical instructions to your students, the skill of breaking down an exercise—body part by body part—so that it fits your body best, will pay off again and again.
All bodies are welcome! The only requirement is that you’d love in-person instruction for each exercise, a chance to play with bodypart bolstering, exercise modifications and variations, all in a welcoming place to connect with others who are interested in moving their bodies in new and beneficial ways.
MYDNA Weekends offer 1:10 teacher/student ratios, barefoot and minimal shoe experiences, and an introductory gait lesson. The exact timing of these weekends varies, but in general the days are broken into 90-minute exercise classes interspersed with outdoor movement experiences and breaks.
Because the book Move Your DNA has been translated into German, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Italian, Slovak, Spanish, French, Polish, Romanian, Bulgarian and Japanese (coming soon!), we have “nutritious movers” all over the world. Look for a weekend in your area and come connect with them!
