Who is it for?
Any athlete seeking to increase their mobility, build resilience to injury, and improve their athleticism.
What is it?
A full-day Movement Workshop. Expect an all-day, zero-equipment workout in 5 phases: Roll, crawl, step, throw, jump.
What will I get out of it?
What do you need to bring?
Come dressed to move. You will want to be barefoot in shorts and a t-shirt with plenty of water.
Movement Coach, IFMGA Mountain Guide & Athlete
"In 2020, I survived a near-fatal avalanche accident. It wasn't strength or endurance that saved my life that day, it was a movement instinct. That left me wondering: Can movement be trained? Can athleticism be improved? Is there a thread that connects all forms of athleticism?
That search took me back to tracing the origins of human movement, and the chapters of evolution that we have taken from early hominins, to modern homo sapiens. What crystallized for me is that the athletes we are today is an accumulation of our 8 million year movement habits. By honing our evolutionary athletic traits, we can improve our modern performance."
The Samsara Movement Workshop is an exploration of human locomotion, inspired by sports ranging from running and climbing to martial arts and throwing sports.
We begin with quadrupedal movements, rolls and crawling before we transition to walking, running, jumping & throwing movements. In this stage we focus on slow and controlled movement patterning.
In the Athlete IQ phase we increase speed, agility and rebound. We learn to harness the elastic capacity of the body to increase the contribution of the fascia system, and increase the efficiency and speed of your athleticism.
