And just like that...I'm home! ༜
After 4 months of travel & teaching, rocking the room from Bergen to Berlin, San Diego to Atlanta, NYC to PDX, and everywhere in between, I'm back in the sweet southern lands of Austin f'n TX, dropping in with family & friends, and reminiscing on a summer spent well 😎
Next up, I'll be training for a couple months with @acroarmy, then I fly to Costa Rica to lead a men's Acro weekend in January, then a TX festival (#playacrofest ) in March, and a Viking Acro retreat in Norway in June 😃
I'm feeling a lot of love & gratitude for my life this morning, and I'm stoked I get to share it with people like YOU. ༜
Thank you @hoperosemary for this lovely shot from Manhattan, with one of my favorite humans, the effervescent @laurenclausenyoga ✨❤🙏🏼
Happy hump day #fitfam ! I want to thank @welltodocanada for putting on an amazing event this past Sunday! Two hours of meditation, Animal Flow and a fresh pint to end the perfect day. My #WCW is none other than the amazing @jamiesnow who led us through some killer Animal Flows. Talk about #fitspo !! This woman is killing it! She left me motivated, determined and hungry for more! Jamie, you are a gem 💎, so glad I finally got to meet you! Until next time!!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 #movementculture#animalflow#beastmode#tistheseason 💪🏾
We’ve found that getting comfortable on a bar is one of the most enjoyable aspects of calisthenics training. Those bar sit-ups were hella sketchy though... you’ve been warned!🙃

Some Wednesday Wisdom on raising others up.
One of the best ways to raise someone’s vibration is to give them love. People receive love in many different ways, so it helps if you know how the person likes to receive love.
People whose love strategy is physical affection may respond well if you offer them a hug. People with acts of service as their love strategy may appreciate it if you offer to help them with a task or chore that will lift their spirits or help them with their burdens.
People who respond well to words of affirmation may really appreciate you telling them how wonderful they are and how happy you are to have them in your life.
People with quality time as their love strategy may feel better if you offer to take them out for lunch or take a walk with them in the park.
Weighted Wednesday- Scott Curls
When it comes to pulling strength, you can't go wrong with a mixture of pull-ups/chin-ups, row variations, and biceps curls. All three of these will give you a firm base of pulling strength.
One of my favorite curl variations, especially for beginners, is the Scott Curl. The main difference with Scott Curls compared to other curl variations is that the elbows are in FRONT of the body and the arm is parallel to the ground near the beginning of the movement. As you watch the video, you'll notice my arm is parallel soon after I start the movement. This has several benefits:
One, strengthening the beginning portion of the pull-up or chin-up. You'll notice the angle of my elbow when my arm is parallel to the ground is VERY similar to the angle of my elbow when we first get a chin up initiated. That's what makes Scott Curls so great for people beginning to work on chin-ups or one arm chin ups. A strong beginning pull helps complete the rep later.
Two, curls help your biceps function as brakes so that your arms can extend faster whether you're pressing, punching, throwing etc.
Three, curls help to prehab your arms from injury and keep you safe during training and movement.
So there you have it, how Scott Curls can help you achieve your goals! For more information, check the IG stories!

There’s a first time for everything. And in order to allow ourselves to truly grow, learn and expand we have to be willing to step into the space of a beginner, allow ourselves to fail, make mistakes, be shaky and uncoordinated.
Naturally, this applies in all aspects of our lives. But I have found learning it physically, in relationship to my body has a profound and lasting impact on my ability to carry it forward in other arenas of my life; relationships, career, projects, and artistic pursuits as well.
There’s something so beautiful and transformative about being a beginner and really embracing it. We all lived in this state as children. Everything was wondrous, exciting, fascinating. Since I’ve learned to suspend my adulthood judgements, my perfectionism, my need to perform and “look good”, it’s opened so many doors for me. It’s allowed be to deeply plug into my true self, connect with all parts of myself and garner true appreciation for the process of learning. For being in the moment, living in the present and soaking up in the warmth and joy available in every second of life.
Allow yourself to be a beginner- plug back into your childhood self. Pull back the veils of judgement fear and doubt and allow yourself to enjoy learning just for the pure love of it. Become an explorer, discovering new parts of yourself you never knew existed before. 💙
⚠️ Wir bauen unser Zuhause in Berlin auf ⚠️
Freunde, Community und alle die das hier lesen! MOVISION MOVEMENT ist auf der Suche nach einer Halle die wir langfristig mieten können.
Auch wenn es so geile Leute wie die von @urbangladiatorsberlin gibt die uns eine Möglichkeit geben jeden Samstag bei ihnen einen Kurs zu geben, wollen wir endlich unser eigenes Gym aufmachen. Einen Platz an dem alle Mover zusammenkommen können.
☝️ Dafür brauchen wir eure Unterstützung.
Wie ihr euch sicherlich denken könnt, ist es derzeit verdammt schwer, an schöne Objekte zu kommen. Wenn ihr also von einer potentiellen Location wisst oder jemanden kennt der soetwas wissen könnte, dann lasst es uns und denjenigen wissen. Jede Verbindung, jede Fabrikhalle oder Gewerbefläche könnte nützlich sein, um diesen Ort aufzubauen.
👉 Was wir brauchen:
- ca. 200 qm
- Sanitäre Anlagen (Toiletten auf jeden Fall, Duschen waren ebenfalls praktisch, aber nicht zwingend)
- ca. 2000€/Monat
- Zugangsmöglichkeit 24/7
- so zentral wie möglich
Bitte teilen, connecten und Bescheid geben. Danke! 🙏

Butt to bun x2!!! 🎉🎊 @seliasomething got one step closer to getting her butt to her head in Contortion 2 yesterday! Great work, Ash 👏👏👏 It's definitely going to be a full on butt hat by the end of the year 😍👍 #trainingwithcatiebrier#contortiontraining#bendyback

The moments at which we have to face vulnerability head on are often times the moments that can be the most joyful and precious. We avoid vulnerability because it opens us up to the possibility of disappointment, but in doing so we lose out on the magic life has to show us.💫
"Do your work and let it go." I don't remember where I first heard this sentiment, but it's a philosophy I apply to every skill I practice. It takes the pressure off perfection, and allows the work to be the practice, rather than an outcome I am trying to achieve. Plus, some days the movements come more easily or the sentences flow; other days, things are heavy, slow to make sense. But if you consistently show up, day in and day out, the good days begin to out number the bad. Try daily.
Rotator Cuff Strengthening can be a very important missing link for your shoulder health. Given the complexity of the rotator cuff it is very rarely a prime mover in any exercise but it is a stabilizer in any pressing or pulling work hence it's vital importance. The internal rotators are: -Deltoid.
The external rotators are: -Deltoid.
This banded exercise will isolate the rotator cuff and is a personal favorite of mine.
A few tips:
1. During Internal Rotation keep the Elbow inline with the Deltoid
2. During External Rotation focus on Elevating the Elbow only keeping the fist as close to neutral as possible.
3. Keep movements very controlled and a slow to moderate tempo.
4. Keep the band very light
3 sets of 10 reps
🇭🇰 WE ARE HOME! 🇭🇰 Make moves with us back at the studio, 7.15P tomorrow. The amazing @paul_moves is subbing my usual 12P class, come for some Feldenkrais magic. .
📸: We took this at @facebook HQ in NYC. We have the coolest friends, they take us to the best places. What a great way to end our trip 😊
Great way to warmup before squat session.
This mobility drill simultaneously activates multiple muscles of the back, especially rhomboids, and at the same time it challenges ankles, hips, shoulder and lumbar spine mobility.
Move better, feel better.
In the pursuit of moving and training we should push ourselves past our comfortability and boundaries to expand not only our physical skills but also our mental ability to endure and to push past comfort in any aspect of life. Through difficulty and exertion we become humble and grounded in our innate strength to push past difficulty. This isn't to say that we should only do the same things with increased difficulty but, we should also challenge ourselves in difficulty in complexity of movement. This means to step out of our comfort with what we know for what we don't know and have to explore in movement. Learning new ideas, practices and patterns ultimately makes us better humans. As movers this new found skill can be applied to not only personal growth but also athletics, rehabilitation, business, faith, life etc. However, with the pursuit of difficulty and new movement we must always remember to balance it out with recovery both physically, mentally and spritually. We cannot continously run forward without learning how to stop and rest otherwise we run the gambit of destroying ourselves. Following the concepts of yin-yang we must have balance and harmony between these two opposing forces of yang or difficulty and exploration with yin of relaxation and recovery. #godfirst#philosophy#movementculture#holistic#martialarts#brucelee#humanology

Kiira no solo trabaja con nosotros como nutricionista, pero tambien es alumna del estudio. Ella viene a nuestras clases a diario y ademas vuene a practicar cosas por su cuenta. Y, como en todo que tiene constancia, los resultados no dejan esperar.
Seguimos con la movilidad de los dedos, esta vez a un nivel más avanzado.
Lo primero que queremos conseguir es hacer la transición full ROM y sin asistencia, controlando el movimiento a lo largo del rango, a posteriori podemos hacer dos escaladas, en fuerza y en ROM.
We want to continue with toes mobility, but this time with a higher level.
First of all, we have to be able to do the transition in a full ROM, with no assistance and controlled, and then we have two options to work on: either getting more ROM or more strength.
