Aristotle said: β€œto be ignorant of motion is to be ignorant of nature.”

Movement Experiment


What is difficult for most students of movement-based disciplines like Yoga, martial arts, and others to determine is this: When am I ready to begin advanced practice?  

The Movement Experiment is designed to offer the public a systematic sequence of development that aims to give serious students of movement-based disciplines a clear idea about when they are ready to get really serious about moving creatively and how to go about it.
