  • Why add Natural Movement training to your practice?

    “We should all become familiar with our natural heritage as humans, in the way that we move, perform and function. Rediscovering this natural way of moving and how our fitness and performance is interconnected with nature is at the core of The Mavericks Way. 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 training.”  Jessica Christensen
