Training gear (shorts, T-shirt, minimal shoes) for indoors and outdoors. Layers to be comfortable in a variety of weather conditions. Sunscreen, bug repellant and a tick removal device.
Snacks, fluids, and lunch. Dinner if you’d liked to hang out by the fire with us afterward.
This one day workshop is designed to introduce you to Natural Movement, and give you the most important basics that you can practice in your daily life. We will focus on areas that need the most improvement and you will learn routines that you can use and practice at home in twenty or thirty minutes a day.
In this special course, there will also be extra time devoted toward introducing wilderness skills that overlap and grow out of a natural movement practice including fire by friction, tracking & animal forms, stalking and scout games. We’ll be spending the entire day outside (rain or shine) in a woodland setting. We’ll have a fire going by the end of the day and you’re welcome to stay after the program to eat and hang out with us around the fire.
