Erwan Le Corre is the founder of MovNat, a lifestyle program geared towards helping others get connected to nature through physical movement. MovNat is also a practice based on natural movement skills such as running, dancing, climbing, and even manipulating heavy objects. He dedicates his life not only to improve people’s efficiency when doing natural movements, but also to “bring back something done before.”
Today, Erwan shares us the story of MovNat, his approach to exercise and training, and why he thinks people need to get re-connected with nature.
"Functional strength is everything we do.” Erwan Le Corre
In this episode, you’ll learn:
Erwan focused on two points when he created Movnat: To give back natural movement to the world and to come up with an effective program to teach it.
Strength is not just about power, but how you put strength to use with skills and techniques necessary in the real world.
Our modern day conveniences don't require us to move very much.
His approach is not just with intensity but by improving technique through position and breathing, and creating a balance between tension and relaxation.
Most of us have that inch-wide, mile-deep focus. We're in some sort of movement deficit.
MovNat can work both indoors and outdoors. Indoor training allows people do hone their movements safely and in a scalable and progressive manner. Outside, it’s nonexistent in nature. It’s a take it or leave it proposition and can be dangerous.
What they teach is a realistic evaluation of each person’s movement ability.
One of the best exercises to practice natural movement is by doing a Turkish Get-Up.
It’s important to understand the importance of nature thru movement.
We need physical competency and preparedness for the real world.
