What We Do
The teachers at Boulder Movement Collective lead group classes focused on strength and mobility, using tools to develop movement intelligence through the use of gymnastics, dance, martial arts, and acrobatic elements.
You will become more fit, stronger, more athletic and feel better, but our approach is different. Skills such as handstands and one-arm chins are consequences of what we do, not the goal.
We are looking to help people become more coordinated, learn how to learn, and develop greater body intelligence.
All Levels: 6am-8am, 9-11am, 6-8pm Monday-Friday
Movement Prep: 8-9am, 12-1pm, 5-6pm Monday-Friday
and 11:30-12:30pm Saturday
Tuesday and Thursday 6:00-8:00pm will now have TWO teachers!
What is "Movement Prep"
Boulder Movement Collective has been a laboratory of a new concept. A facility that develops movement practitioners in the most honest definition possible. Because of this we are constantly developing, changing and tweaking how we deliver this practice to our students.
We will slightly be changing our class offerings. A simple analogy from Ido that we like to use is The Mechanic and The Driver. The mechanic perspective stretches and strengthens the body, getting strong, mobile and useful. However, tinkering with your car is not the same as driving it. We need to take the car out, see how it drives. And of course, learn to drive it.
Our Movement classes (driving the car) will now be two hours long. This will give us more time in the drivers seat and to go deeper into the work you are already doing. Strength and mobility will still be features of these classes, but with this additional 30 minutes, we will have more time to explore the broader practice.
Movement Prep is the mechanic’s shop. If you have the time to add it to a day with your Movement class, great. If you don’t, great. This will be an hour of work. If you are rehabbing an injury or finishing a strength or mobility project this class is for you.
Movement class is where you come to learn to drive, Second Session is where you come to tune the car. The option is yours, take Movement Prep as your only class that day, take the Movement class as your class, or see if you can catch both. We’re doing this to help you with where you’re currently at. This is about bringing up the community as a whole, and it starts with giving you the best possible options to go deeper into your practice.
