About

Facilitating with passion and integrity, Movement Practice offers unique physical conditioning classes that provide students with strong foundations of physical, mental and emotional awareness.

Movement Practice is inspired by multiple movement methods and based on three pillars:

PLAY involves task and games based exercises for the pure enjoyment of it.  We get to enjoy our natural ability to move and play like children!

DYNAMICS involve a little more effort and unpredictability which develops adaptive skills and holistic physical conditioning. We’re talking Superhuman-in-the-making stuff!

CURIOSITY nurtures open-mindedness, connection with others and personal growth.  This pillar involves investigating basic movement patterns and pathways… sequences if you like.  We explore the unknown and uncertain, because well, that’s life hey?

Here’s a taste of what we get up to in our adult classes…

We work with adults & youth:

Adults who have an interest in varied movement disciplines and personal growth gravitate towards our approach to physical activity.

Youth between Grades 8 & 12 who enjoy music, dance and other disciplines like martial arts and gymnastics love our fun and fresh classes.

Our mission is to contribute to the positive development, transformation and humanitarian spirit of our students.
