WHAT IS MOVNAT?
MovNat will let you explore your body’s innate capability of moving and adapting in and to the environment. We take you back to the journey that we as humans go through, from the moment we are born until the moment we can walk upright. From there, we rediscover crawling, balancing, walking, running, hanging, and all other abilities we as humans have access to. Check the video for more insights:
WHAT IS THE WIM HOF METHOD?
The WimHof Method will show you that your body is an amazingly strong and resilient masterpiece of nature. We all carry innate strength in us that we can’t see and explore in today’s lifestyle. We want to show you how capable you are to withstand physical & emotional stress by expanding your comfort zone and give you tools to become the version of yourself you want to be. The video gives you an idea of what to expect:
WHAT IS NATURAL RUNNING
Natural running refers to a running technique that is based on our natural biomechanics. It is also known as barefoot running because it involves the mechanics of a barefoot foot while running. Allowing the feet to move freely as it was meant to be. The difference in shock absorption means the body has to readjust in order to handle the loads it is placed under, yielding a different technique that is more energy-efficient and less damaging to the body.
ARE WE GOING TO CHECK OUT THE NATURE AROUND US?
We teach you the techniques in a controlled environment so that you gain confidence about the way you move. The goal is for you to be able to adapt your training to the environment where you live. To teach you this, we do adventure days where we go around into nature and do exactly that, we apply what we have learned. You will soon realize that there is movement potential all around us.
WHAT ABOUT THE FOOD?
Three times a day every day, you will get pampered by us and our own chef. We will offer you nutritious homemade food allowing your body & mind to detox. Whether you like a vegetarian diet or are into something else, we can accommodate your wishes to ensure you will have the fuel needed to rip the benefits the week will bring.
…AND THE PEOPLE?
Rejuvenate by meeting like-minded people, exchange ideas & make friendships for life.
You will have the time and space for reflection and to recharge in order to bring your newly created habits and learned tools back into your daily life.
