Become a part of the MovNat family by training first-hand with MovNat creator Erwan Le Corre in the woods and lake of West Virginia.
Reconnect with your true nature by disconnecting from the "zoo", and learning the fundamentals of the MovNat Natural Movement Training System®
Realign with your whole-self (mind, body, heart and spirit) as you begin your journey to becoming strong, healthy, happy and free again.
Revitalize your body with healthy natural movement and unprocessed, live foods based on the true nature diet principles.
The MovNat Experience
You will learn the fundamental principles that helped make our species one of the most adaptable on Earth.
In the five nights of camping and 4 and one-half days of MovNat training you will:
- Develop a greater understanding of the "zoo" and begin the rehabilitation process, including the many ways you can remain connected to your true nature while among the "zoo."
- Enhance your ability to perceive the messages from your body, environment and the situation.
- Develop the holistic qualities needed for effective and efficient action.
- Learn methods of breathing that will allow you stay relaxed and alert.
- Practice on a fully-scalable designed course that meets individual needs regardless of background, experience, condition age or gender.
- Learn optimal methods of walking, running, jumping, balancing, moving on all fours, climbing, lifting, carrying, throwing, catching, swimming and defending while preventing injury.
- Practice opportunist training which will allow you to train anywhere, anytime by programming your own training.
We offer two MovNat training Workshops "Reawakening "and "Expansion"
