AMORGOS, the easternmost island of the Greek Cyclades is a stunner,
with whitewashed houses, trestled alleyways and fiery rust sunsets ...

Workshop Elemental Walking

Elemental walking is more than just another theory about walking. It is an understanding of human movement.

Of course, walking is easy. It’s so easy that no child has to be taught how to. It’s so easy, that we never think about it. Unless it gets difficult. Sometimes difficulties are caused by fatigue and often by pain. Ones knee bothers and another one moans about back pain. Nobody complains about a painful gait. People still think they have got this walking thing off pat.

Reconnect with your natural abilities to walk, even before it hurts. Learning to move with less effort makes daily life easier and also can enhance sport and the standard of your exercise performance. Everyone, from top athletes to those with limited sports abilty, can benefit from learning how to fully use their own capabilties.

Elemental walking courses help people to exploit their own individual movement which involves thinking, sensing, moving, and imagining. Most of the course segments are based on developmental movements and everyday functional activities. There are also expanded upon to include and develop further abstract explorations to discover functional relationships between different body parts.

Amorgos provides the perfect ambiance to explore elemental walking. Barefoot experiences on the sandy beaches. Balancing on pebbles and rocks. Gentle hikes with stunning views. Inhaling herbal scents. Here you can discover your individual way of elemental walking which appeals to all your distinct senses.
