What is natural movement?
A person's ability to move well is the sum of the quality of their entire day's movements, every day - not just in 'exercise' sessions.
Natural movement helps you become aware of the quality of your movements all the time.
Classes teach you good technique in everything from sitting on and getting up and down from the floor, stepping up and over, lifting correctly and other daily movements. They also introduce other skills you are less likely to practice during your normal day, that reinforce healthy movement patterns like squatting, crawling and balancing and up to jumping & hanging.
The benefits are helping protect against injury, strengthening the body in good alignment and healthy movement patterns. It also increases and maintains good mobility which gives you the confidence to move more throughout your day, whatever your age and for the rest of your life - we all want that, don't we?!
Classes & Coaching
I offer 2 levels of Natural Movement classes & coaching; 'Natural Mobility' and 'Essential Skills',
designed to fit your specific range of movement.
Both levels work on mobility & strength and cover the natural movement skills but at a different pace.
Location: private gym on Cumnor Hill, Oxford or online via Zoom
What my clients say
"I wish I had discovered natural movement before my injury, but am grateful to have come across Wendy's classes now. Her lessons have given me the confidence to enjoy exercise again, and the peace of mind that I'm building good habits for the years ahead. Plus, they're so much fun!"
“Wendy’s lessons were a complete game changer for me. I had done pilates for years but coming back from a knee injury I needed to do something different. She tailored a programme for me that focussed on my problem areas but also that significantly built my strength and movement range across my whole body. My progress has been rapid and I’m excited to find out how it’s going to feel and what I’m going to be able to doing in the months to come and beyond. I can honestly say I’m hooked.”
"Wendy is such a great teacher - clear and calm. Even after years of yoga, I felt I was using muscles I never knew I had. I came away feeling like I’d had a deep-tissue massage! The classes are fascinating and a total eye-opener - genuinely transformative."
