movement is life
Regain your Freedom
Regain your Freedom
Movement has been around forever just people stopped focusing on moving as gyms gravitated to using machines and treadmills, In what most thought would be a total revolution in fitness. Well, that thought process has come and gone. The human body desires to move in a variety of complex patterns. The more complex patterns the better your self-awareness grows, the more neural pathways are created, creating a more connected self-allowing the mover greater self-expression. Think of movement as a type of communication with your environment. Are you clumsy or do you move with the grace of a cat? Do you move with discomfort, if so you probably have some sort of adaptation from your current lifestyle? Learning how to move with a full range of motion allows you to regain freedom. The freedom to do whatever you want, past dreams of rock climbing or thoughts about taking up a new sport or activity, now you can!
First, we gauge your level of mobility by how well you can move through a variety of base level movements. Then we prescribe movements that fit your current state to allow you to progress into more complex positions moving and static. Through these guided sessions you will learn how to perform gymnastic strength movements, attain yoga-like flexibility, and regain the childlike mobility you once had as a kid. Spinal articulations, balance control, upper and lower bodyweight strength and conditioning, agility, timing, etc.
We are located stone's throw from BTS Udomsuk right off of Sukhumvit Road in the same Soi as the Fitness Station. In Bang Na once a sub-district of Phra Khanong, just one BTS station away from the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC).
