with Charis

Class length
60 minutes

Location
Hello Body L2 (#02-04)

Ground Movement exposes us to different movement patterns while building strength and mobility simultaneously. We will explore different forms of locomotions and adding them into a flow. Even if you are a complete beginner, with the right guidance you will eventually be able to create and improvise a flow of your own.

What you will learn
Beginners will start by learning one movement pattern at a time and slowly adding them into a sequence. Movements will be broken down so it is easily digestible, and you can learn how to connect each movement pattern together. Simple movement patterns and transitions will be given before moving towards more complex variations. You will gain confidence in your abilities and work towards an improvised flow.

For more seasoned practitioners, we will focus on sharpening each movement pattern to make them look effortless and light. We will learn how to perform weight shifts, efficient hand and leg placement, and become a smarter mover. We may even incorporate backbends and small forms of hand-balancing into our movement flow.

In between the ground movements, we will also explore different forms of movement games and riddles. These games and riddles change every few months to keep the practice light, fun and exciting.

Why join this class?
Ground Movement helps build strength and mobility by exposing ourselves to different forms of locomotion. We will naturally get stronger at push patterns and regain our squat mobility as staying close to the ground forces us to move in, out and around the squat in various forms. Our spine should also become more strong and flexible by exposing it to many different patterns.

It is also a more realistic approach because Ground Movement require us to move our body in different positions. We will expose ourselves to a lot of movement patterns that can be applied in everyday life. We will learn how to go in and out of positions like standing to squat to sitting to lying etc.. It forces us to be efficient and greatly improves our body coordination, body awareness, spatial awareness and build confidence in our general movement abilities.

Lastly, it makes us feel good and relieve stress. It is not only super fun and cool, but being able to move in different positions will also make us feel young again. 

Testimonials from past students

"Don is an extremely knowledgeable teacher with great movement ability, but also a great ability to break down more complex movements into digestible chunks. I've seen a big improvement in my mobility, flexibility, coordination and bodyweight strength since attending his classes regularly." - Angus

"Personalised, fun, effective are the three best words that summarise the transformative training experience that I had with Don thus far. The content and methods were down to earth and achievable.

My gains over the past 2 years had been awesome in terms of strength, flexibility, coordination and balancing. I am now in my late 40s but have not felt any stronger. His passion to movement training has also made me taken a new light to mobility. Juggling, walking on poles, moving to rhythm and tempo, movement flows are just a few fun things that we do as a group or in a 1-1 session.

Don has demonstrated how our minds possess endless possibilities. At the same time he has also shown high level of respect for his clients and care for those who suffer from injury by creating effective recovery programmes specific to their needs. Looking forward to more laughter and gains." - Dan

Suitable for: All ages. Anyone interested in exploring movement should definitely try it.
