Yoga Teacher? Physiotherapist? Osteopath? Running Coach? Aspiring Movement Professional?
If your work involves movement, our innovative approach can round out even the most established exercise toolbox. All of our products are designed to make natural movement accessible to both laypersons and professionals. We no longer offer a certification program (we do ongoing training with our team of 500 instructors worldwide, but aren’t taking new teachers, sorry!), but we have a tremendous number of resources for you to learn from.
Our philosophy is that movement—natural movement—functions as nutrition does. Movement is a required input, with everyone needing to sort out the best dosage for their individual body. Movement “doses” include which parts are moving and how, as well as how often. We specialize in teaching how to quantify and qualify the movement you participate in. We help you see where your body might not be moving at all, despite your being active overall.
We can’t teach you how to teach, but we can teach you moves and help you see movement in a different way, which will inform you professionally. If you’re here to stack learning to help others move with working on your own body, we suggest these options:
Move Your DNA
This will give you some technical background into our perspective on movement. You’ll eventually want to read all our books, but start with this one first as it will provide you with a framework to our approach. Available in Print, E-Book and Audio.
Whole Body Biomechanics Courses
These courses provide you with a firm foundation in how to self-observe and measure how you’re currently moving so you can change it if necessary. Professionals will learn new movements or different markers for old movement and also how to communicate to the student about movement. We suggest professionals take them in this order: WBB: Feet, Knees, and Hips, WBB: Upper Body, and WBB: Core and Pelvis.
Natural Movement Fundamentals
Our perspective is that natural movement provides the greatest amount of movement per time spent moving. It also affords the greatest distribution in movement over a body, and both MovNat® and Nutritious Movement believe natural movement is for everyone. Once you’ve completed the Feet, Knees, and Hips program, add more movement to other areas of your body via our other WBB programs for the Core and Upper Body. Once you’re familiar with how to spot sedentary areas within the body and you’re ready to apply them to more complex natural movements, try the Natural Movement Fundamentals® course we co-produced with MovNat. In this 7-hour course you’ll find many of our smaller movement elements paired with their larger natural movement sources: crawling, jumping, climbing, ground work, throwing/catching, lifting/carrying, and walking. If you’re looking for a professional certification, you can take this course and pair it with a MovNat certification. All of our courses will help deepen your toolbox to best progress to more athletic natural movement feats, and MovNat can give you the certificate you need to teach.
Virtual Studio Membership
With access to 70+ streaming classes and more added every month, the VSM is the best way we know how to #stackyourlife when it comes to continuing education. Inexpensive and ongoing, take these classes for your own body of knowledge (and for the knowledge of your body).
You’ll find new movements, new perspectives, and new ways of presenting movement with each class!
