Jerome Rattoni: Master Instructor
Jérôme Rattoni has been deeply involved athletically from a very early age. Be it rugby, freediving, martial arts, or football. However, it was only after many years of accumulating minor specialized sports injuries, and many hours sitting at a desk, that he discovered MovNat and the Natural Movement method. Having immersed himself in MovNat, he quickly discovered the health benefits for himself, and became professionally involved in sharing Natural Movement with others… read more
After a life studying martial arts (anything really from kung-fu to archery and boxing to kendo) and sustaining many injuries, Oki became intrigued by the practice and history of The Natural Method. In 2012 he traveled to the US to get certified with Erwan. Ever since, he has been a strong advocate of holistic movement and MovNat, and has been connecting holistic training to prehab and rehab by incorporating systems such as FMS and KMI. In the process of gathering this knowledge his belief in the power of natural movement, training with complexity and variation to protect from injury, has been cemented. He now trains not to be stronger, faster, or cut people in two with a sword, but instead to be adaptable, free, and to grow old gracefully; in other words: to be Simply Human.

Having trained and instructed in a variety of physical and mental disciplines — e.g. obstacle courses, calisthenics, rescue swimming, ROPES challenge courses, combative arts, neuro-associative conditioning — Eric has experienced a wide breath of life lessons that have brought him to a deeper understanding of his role in life and society. A family man, he enjoys moving with his wife and young son, fulling expressing his “NATM – Never Afraid to Move” way of life. As a MovNat Master Trainer, his mission is to increase the quality of life for the young and old. Letting those open to the training know that consistency is the key to moving and feeling better. As he often says, “Patiently persistent practice, produces proper practical progression.”
Seth’s journey on the path of movement started like so many, when he was just a kid exploring the back-woods of Middle Tennessee barefoot and carefree. Fast forward to today and not much has changed. Seth has been both a student and teacher in the Fitness and Movement Education space for over a decade. His experiences range from fighting competitively in San-Shou Kickboxing, training extensively in powerlifting, and coaching other fitness professionals to maximize their potential. But for years, he felt that a key element was missing in the fitness world.
Seth discovered along his journey that most people were experiencing a profound disconnect from the natural world and lacked the ability to engage with it safely and joyfully, the way he had as a kid. In 2012, Seth stumbled across the MovNat methodology and found that it could challenge the most athletic of bodies while also rehabilitating everyday people to the movement skills their bodies were always meant for. Since that day, Seth has made it his personal mission to share MovNat with the world.
Seth is the founder and director of MovNat Asheville in the mountains of North Carolina.
Bernd Reicheneder has always been an “all rounder”. Exploring and playing in nature were part of his rural upbringing. Sports & Fitness became an integrated part of his life from early childhood. He practiced Shotokan-Karate, starting in 1989, and continuing for over 20 years because he loved the deep philosophy and the strict techniques of Kihon, Kata and Kumite (very much like Emphasis, Combo and Course in MovNat). After finishing successfully with a Diploma in Sports Science and a Masters in Classical Archaeology in 2010, he worked in a conventional fitness business, with a specialization in Movement Screening. While working intensely with the Functional Movement Screen, he discovered MovNat. After meeting Vic Verdier in 2011 at a MovNat Workshop in Berlin, Bernd decided to concentrate all of his work into MovNat. It became obvious very quickly that MovNat integrated everything he searched for; something which is pure, integrated, natural, and the only system which can help anybody.
Stefano creatively bridges the inner workings of the mind and body with our collective external landscapes in order to explore, learn, experience, and play with the world and our place in it.

He is known for his bright energy and ability to inspire mindful execution, technical skill, physical competence and limitless creativity in his clients and classes.
Peri Zourides is the owner of Seven Star Energy Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa, which is a multi-disciplined training facility that offers Natural Movement, kettlebells, calisthenics, martial arts, rehabilitation treatment and mindfulness training. Peri has a background playing in competitive football and basketball as well as coaching both sports. He’s trained and taught traditional Kung Fu and Tai Chi, has been certified through StrongFirst as a Bodyweight and Level 2 Kettlebell instructor, and also facilitates corporate wellness programs.
Driven by an urge to learn more about human movement, Peri was drawn to MovNat initially through Erwan’s video on the Workout the World Forgot. He immediately began looking into ways to further his practice; even having been fit in other movement styles, he saw what was lacking in his own natural movement. Seeing the transformation in his own life, and then those of his clients, Peri has embarked on a journey to teach the practice of Natural Movement throughout the African continent…and beyond!
