Bernd Reicheneder

Master Instructor & Curriculum Manager

Bernd Reicheneder discovered MovNat in 2011 after he successfully completed a Diploma in Sports Science in 2005 and a Magister Artium in Classical Archeology in 2010 – while working already 10 years in the conventional fitness industry. He started practicing Shotokan karate seriously from 1989 on and his active practice lasted for over 20 years, because of the deep philosophy and the enhanced techniques of this extremely aesthetic martial art, rising finally in 2011 to the rank of 2nd Dan. 

While working as a fitness trainer in gyms, companies and personal training, he was intrigued by building a person with abandoned physical situation into being free from pain and problems from a sitting lifestyle into a self-sufficient understanding a practice of their own. This combined the contents of his sport scientific profession in Prevention, Rehabilitation and Performance. Through Muscle Testings (Physiodiagnostics) and Functional Movements Systems (FMS), training plans could be developed to relearn Functional Patterns. But one piece was missing until he finally learned about MovNat, which completed this threesome to a system that was able to help everybody, at any age and situation, to gain back his or her physical competence and health.

Since 2016 Bernd has worked with MovNat and teaches MovNat Certifications all over Europe. In 2019 he cofounded the Neofold Academy, where he is teaching MovNat and his own creation Natural Ground Movements in combination with the Wim Hof Method and Neuro-Meditation taught by his partners. Health Management is the goal – giving knowledge and natural tools to the people so that they can take care of themselves.

2023 started a new chapter for Bernd: life as a professional Natural Movement Author, Teacher, Coach and Expert through his introduction of a new MovNat Workshop format, the 2-Day Natural Ground Movements Workshop and his appointment as Curriculum Manager of MovNat.
