Question 1: Dan Caldwell - Ottawa Canada: Erwan, Love what you are doing and will be attending a MovNat trainer course in a few months. My question is a bit different but I was wondering what surface you find best for sleeping on? I’ve experimented a bit with this and find that a soft mattress leaves me more sore then when I sleep on the ground under the stars (I do a lot of outdoor activity and camping) but sleeping on a hardwood floor doesn’t feel quite right either. Any suggestions? Thanks and keep on moving, Dan
Question 2: Andy Whitesides Portland, OR: Hi, I am a volunteer PE teacher for 5 & 6 yr olds in a French immersion public school in Portland, OR. I would love to become certified and teach a MovNat type of curriculum to kids. Have you thought about designs for a version of your program that would be a good fit for schools and children? If so, can you discuss some of the programming considerations (vs training adults)? Thanks! Andy
Question 3: Craig Rice Victoria, BC, Canada: How does teaching MovNat to adults differ from teaching it to children? Is it essentially the same but at a different pace depending on the age of the children? Is there more of a focus on having fun while sneaking in some of the loftier concepts such as mindfulness? Looking forward to the advanced certification.
Question 4: Siggi Kassel, Germany: Do you recommend the use of a weight vest, once you have mastered a skill for the purpose of conditioning or strength gaining?
Question 5: Misha Berger , Palo Alto, CA: I love every principle of MovNat, and already do something similar by balancing my hobbies of barefoot and minimalist long distance running, gym and outdoor climbing, and gymnastic strength building exercises. Can MovNat allow me to combine these hobbies (and the other the 13 movements) organically into a daily workout that I can do using little to no equipment, in under an hour? I don’t always have rivers to swim upstream in, hills to crawl backwards up, and other people willing to be fireman-carried when I am ready to work out, and I don’t have all day to do it. Thanks so much for your time and for creating such an amazing program!
Question 6: Darren Lusher, Tasmania, Australia: Congrats to everyone involved in MovNat. Your teachings have been most inspirational. My question: If I was looking to set up a “MovNat playground” in my own backyard, what would you suggest building or using? Thanks
Question 7: Josh, Brisbane, Australia: Hi Erwan and crew, My question is about the MovNat book. I see amazon has its release date for mid February 2013, is this still on track? After the breaking muscle series I’m looking forward to book to help shorten the learning curve. Any hints as to what might be included in the book?
