QM is an intensive two-day workshop (14 hours total) in which you will learn the foundation QM forms including regressions, progressions, and variations for all skill levels. You’ll explore how and when to use each movement individually, as well as how to move between the forms to create a functional application of quadrupedal movement.
Learning to support your bodyweight through crawling and low gait movement is a powerful tool for developing fantastic strength, mobility, flexibility and agility.
This workshop introduces the foundational concepts and methods of low gait and quadrupedal movement, including drills to build strength, mobility and flexibility. You will be exposed to the concepts of fluidity, unbroken kinetic chains of movement, bodyweight support mechanisms, functional biomechanics and flow work, leading on to advanced locomotion forms and combinations.
This is a full two day workshop.
14 & 15 November // 09:00 – 16:00
Cost: US$549 (excluding 4% registration fee)
