Katy Bowman & Danny Clark – Natural Movement Fundamentals
Natural Movement® Fundamentals is an online educational course that uses natural human movements to help you move better.
- Improve your movement skills, fitness, mobility, and conditioning naturally, for more ease and adaptability in everyday life.
- Train smart and safely with step-by-step progressions, for more efficiency and less aches, pains, and injuries.
- Increase your “practical fitness” and capability for the real world – not just the gym – so you’re more prepared when “life happens” and you have to MOVE!
We partnered with our friends at Nutritious Movement to create an e-course that is a perfect introduction to Natural Movement® because we focus on training the way your body is designed.
This course is the ultimate primer to restoring your body and building your Natural Movement® practice “from the ground up.” No matter your experience level – from total novice to experienced mover – you will learn a lot about your body and move much better as a result of taking this e-course.
What’s Inside The Course
Build Movement Freedom in 7 Lessons
This course is broken up according to MovNat movement domains: starting with Ground Movement and concluding with Climbing. This structure creates a great conceptual framework for both learning and teaching. You’ll be able to see how the restorative movements blend seamlessly with the targeted movement domain – and vice versa – making this toolkit exceptionally logical, cohesive, and usable.
- Lesson 1: Ground Movement
- Lesson 2: Crawling
- Lesson 3: Gait
- Lesson 4: Lifting & Carrying
- Lesson 5: Throwing & Catching
- Lesson 6: Jumping
- Lesson 7: Climbing
Find the balance between restorative and challenging movement.
Each lesson module is roughly one hour long and is split into two parts. The first part is about 30 minutes of simple restorative movements, led by Katy Bowman. These movements will help you gain the requisite range of motion, control, body awareness, and joint integrity to be in better alignment for the more complex movements to follow. Danny Clark takes over for the second half of the lesson to reinforce optimal biomechanics and get you moving through more practical, technical, and challenging natural movements from the MovNat curriculum.
