THE PRACTICE

“Movement is big. Bigger than any specific movement discipline and it contains within it HUGE ‘worlds’ like the world of fitness, dance, martial arts, strength, flexibility, circus and more. Specializing is great – but beyond our specialties – we are all HUMAN first, MOVERS second and only then SPECIALISTS.” — Ido Portal

The concepts, tools and philosophy that we teach at Crazy Monkey Movement come from Ido Portal. His continuous work is the catalyst for our practice. We distinguish ourselves from the traditional world of fitness where physical aesthetics are rewarded before function. Instead we strive to create the conditions for opening new doors to forgotten aspects of movement capacity and freeing opportunities for improvisation and play.

We expose our students to a variety of movement layers and make sure everyone works at his/her own level. You can participate in any of our classes whether you are a beginning practitioner or an advanced one. Our students come from all walks of life, professional athletes can attend the same class as senior people or students who are in the process of recovering from certain injuries.

PROGRAM

Our approach combines, among other things, strength, mobility, dance, martial arts, gymnastics and acrobatics and a process where we pick you up at the level you are standing right now. The method we use is well proven and has more than one hundred times proven to be effective for adult human development. We crawl, lift, climb, hang, turn and twist, find ourselves up and down, stretching boundaries and opening the body to more freedom. From you we expect you to take complete responsibility for your own body, examine, ponder and finally ask questions to enable the best possible experience for you.
