A one-hour online workshop with essential NATURAL MOVEMENT exercises, as our foundation workshop to Holistic Training.

Following the evolutionary science of human movement, we have summarised fifteen years of experience of training in our signature workshop, MAVERICK-ONE!

What's the first step in Holistic Training? Before we start to think about sports, skills and performance - we need a good foundation.

In this workshop we look at how we can MOVE LIKE A HUMAN, AT ANY AGE! This workshop is designed to reconnect us all to natural ways to move, the way we did before technology and modern habits got the best of us. As we explore the evolution of human movement and skill, rediscover your body's natural ability to balance, walk, run, squat, jump, sit, and stand with agility and freedom!

Taught and created by Jessica Christensen, CEO & Academy Director of MAVERICKS Life Co. and BBS Training Academy.

  • Are you ready for barefoot training?

    Most of our workshops will have you training barefoot - as nature intended! With barefoot training, it's essential to find a good surface to train and make sure you're ready to load your movements, safely! If you feel unsure about any barefoot training or the movements, listen to your body and consult your doctor or a health professional first.

  • Natural movement.. it's up to YOU!

    Our natural movement and FUNctional training workshops do not dictate your technique, nor do they diagnose any conditions or physical imbalances. Set yourself up comfortably, follow along and have fun - we hope they will encourage you to explore more movement and a functional approach to your training.

  • Why should you add Holistic Training to your practice?

    “We should all become familiar with our natural heritage as humans, in the way that we move, perform and function. There’s power in our genes and ancestral heritage – in finding out what it was that made our primal movements so impactful in creating bodies that can handle almost anything life throws at them. Rediscovering this natural way of moving is at the core of what we’re teaching and we find our community of movers are all the more grounded, injury-free and perform better in their favourite sports. You only have to try it once to understand the power in immersing your body in natural movement and functional movement.”
