1 Day Elements Workshop + Wilderness Skills. New Paltz, NY

When: Aug 03 - Aug 03, 2019


Learn the building blocks of Natural Movement.

Our workshops are designed to introduce you to Natural Movement, and give you the most important basics that you can practice in your daily life. We will focus on areas that need the most improvement and we will teach you routines that you can use and practice at home in twenty or thirty minutes a day.

In this special course, there will also be extra time devoted toward introducing wilderness skills that overlap and grow out of a natural movement practice including fire by friction, tracking & animal forms, stalking and scout games. We’ll be spending the entire day outside (rain or shine) in a woodland setting. We’ll have a fire going by the end of the day and you’re welcome to stay after the program to eat and hang out with us around the fire.


This workshop is being taught by Christa Whiteman DC, MCT L2, MovNat Combatives & Aquatics Certified and instructor with Wild Earth
