Master level. For the passionate. For the committed.


This 4-day workshop builds on the fundamental techniques and variations covered in the Level 1 and 2 certifications. Level 3 techniques are more challenging, and demand more athleticism, physical ability, mental stamina, efficiency, and mindfulness. Upon passing, the Level 3 MovNat Trainer will have the tools to teach the complete spectrum of Level 3 techniques safely and competently in an indoor or outdoor environment.


The 4 days are equally divided into teaching and active practice, with some lecture time providing a well-deserved rest to the participants. Training is conducted by a several members of the MovNat Team, including at least one Master Instructor.

Techniques covered include sprints and changes of direction, advanced vaults like the Inverted Vault, athletic climbing techniques like the Power-Up, rope climbing techniques, like the Push-pull Traverse or the Hook-Swing Traverse, and of course, the lifting and carrying techniques that have made MovNat videos so popular, like log shouldering (one or several people), stone lifting, etc
