Movnat is the clear leading method of fitness training based on our body’s biology. Their approach and philosophy align very well with a Foresighted lifestyle and we’re unabashed fans, even writing an in-depth primer.
Movnat runs several types of events. This is for the Level 1 and 2 certification events, which are in-depth and gets you certified if you pass the written and physical tests. Many participants are fitness professionals but some are just looking to gain more knowledge about Movnat for their personal practice.
Spread over one weekend, these certifications provide an opportunity to enhance your movement skills, improve your fitness, and deepen your understanding of natural movement techniques.
