Part of the new trend « Natural movement », Animal move is an entirely bodyweight based training using the quadruped position, as animals do.
Moving on all fours, in all sorts of variations, necessarily involves the entire body, thereby allowing :
– an even distribution of the forces on the whole body
– a natural readjustment of the posture
– a dynamic core stabilisation
– a harmonious musculature and a balanced silhouette
– a better coordination
The practice is based on listening to the body, understanding of the movement, awakening of the senses, fun and playfulness.
Animal move is aimed at all lovers and professionals of body movement, whether as a main activity or as a supplement to another practice. A regular training improves performance, or just keeps in good physical and mental shape. It can, in some cases, help cure dyslexia and back pains.
