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.
