WORKSHOPS COVERING ALL THE BASICS OF EVOLVE MOVE PLAY

Just a taste of the workshop experience...

Arboreal Movement

Jumping, leaping, and sprinting through trees? You can actually discover how to do this! Learn to swing, jump, and vault through trees like Tarzan and reconnect with 90 million years of primate evolution: the source of incredible movement diversity.

FLOW

Forget those boring squats at the gym forever! Learn the principles of flow and ways to move over the flat ground, rocky terrain or city walls and rails. You can use safe, strategic jumps, freeflow, and body strength to support your parkour training in a natural or more urban environment.

GROUND ENGAGEMENT

Ground engagement involves training methods that improve ground flow and break falling. Rebuild your relationship, confidence, and vocabulary of moving on and getting to and from the ground. Develop stamina as a runner in nature. Tumbling and mastering your own bodyweight will help you become your very own ninja warrior!

ROUGHHOUSING/ROUGH AND TUMBLE

Here’s where group fitness workshops come in handy! Play games and drills and learn concepts to help you reclaim the fun of roughhousing like a kid. Develop the full body athleticism, movement sensitivity, and capacity for communication and emotional regulation that roughhousing is unmatched in developing. Explore roughhousing’s connection to advanced martial arts, self defense, and contact improvisation.

JOINT INTEGRITY AND BODY PREPARATION

Join in mobility health and longevity practices to reclaim your naturally supple, connected body. Because it’s not just about learning sweet parkour moves – this is also a therapeutic movement workshop designed to support your overall wellbeing! And that includes supporting your agility, coordination, and the joints and muscles that make them possible.

MENTAL GAME DEVELOPMENT

Gain techniques and concepts to improve your ability to focus, to overcome obstacles and fears, and to create the optimal mental states for performance. Beyond strength and conditioning and athletics, our movement seminars explore the art of movement and how we can tap into flow states to improve our cognition. Not your average workout.
