MovNat in the Land of Ice and FirePosted | 0 comments
If you‘ve been an air traveller in the last few years, you‘ve probably heard of Eyjafjallajökull, a glacier rising 1650 meters above sea level on a tiny island in the middle of the Atlantic, and most notably known for its ash-spewing capabilities.
Recently, some friends and I walked to it‘s summit. It was an adventurous journey with amazing weather and a courageous rescue – a dog had fallen down a 15 m crevasse. Luckily, there were capable people who rappelled down to save the dog.
‘Important lesson: don’t bring your dog to the glacier!’
But what does this have to do with MovNat? How can a place requiring stiff, bulky shoes (for crampons) and copious amounts of clothing have anything to do with MovNat?
‘I believe that MovNat is a most precious gift that has helped me access more courage in myself to face the elements.’
In my adolescence, a sedentary lifestyle got a hold of me and I began to feel physical deterioration. My childhood prowess and agility were disappearing and I truly believed it was just normal for adults to be “out of shape.”
Luckily, I noticed the process early on and I set out to fix it. But the solution itself had a dark side. I started working out to stay in shape instead of moving my body the way it was designed to move. Had I not found MovNat, I might still be just working out.
‘Movement is not merely a method to condition the body; the body is what you and I use to move!’
I also know that by constantly expanding/refining my movement capabilities, my body will automatically stay fit. Using MovNat to move is fulfilling and gives me freedom to live the life I choose.
This mindset is a fundamental change for me. The paradigm shift is why I believe the “fitness” industry as we know it will become obsolete.
It is also why I believe that there will be a time when our current health issues will only be a troubling memory. It is my hope that being strong, healthy, happy and free will be the normal state of fitness.
Thank you MovNat friends for sharing this with me.
