MOVEMENT AND MOBILITY
Nested inside our practice is an organic gym designed for big city life that harnesses the proven health benefits of biophilic, nature-inspired design and real-world fitness training. This means we won’t be using machines or mats to exercise, but rather help you become a Generalist, by teaching a wide range of movement vocabulary so that you may be ready for anything that life throws at you!
In January 2017, a research study performed by the UK Active Research Institute in London analyzed the benefits of this unique form of “indoor green exercise” and concluded this type of gym concept can reduce stress levels, improve mood and add a sense of natural vitality.
In keeping with the organic, nature-inspired design, all the training equipment is made of wood, leather, cotton or rope, including the bespoke wooden pull-up bar with finger grips, the handmade calf leather punching bag, and the sustainable wood WaterRower. Once a class is complete, our clients leave physically and mentally fitter for the great outdoors!
Our approach not only encourages daily movement and long-term health but is also:
Varies in Intensity (Easy To Hard)
Varies in Pace (Slow to Fast)
We offer a variety of classes that cover a wide range of levels and skills. Find out more information about our fantastic training classes that you will not only look forward to but will also challenge you and your body to live a healthier life.
