Fundamental Challenge

What is it

This is level one - where we learn the foundations of yoga, Melbourne shuffle, cutting shapes and take a look at the influential root of Charleston. I'm joined by guest instructors to provide a month full of Elev8ed Movement Original tutorials. We will also be learning about dance history, yoga philosophy, upper body flow, musicality, and exploring other mindfulness exercises. There is a group chat feature connecting participants taking the current challenge, this will be a home for the journey to connect, share experiences, and learn from one another.

who is it for

Anyone new to yoga, or shuffling will benefit from this challenge as it will leave them with tools to take their journey to the next level. This is also for any experienced dancers who have not spent time on foundation and fundamentals. Lastly, this is for anyone who may feel a little lost in their life and needs some guidance, connection, and confidence.  We're in the business of flow – beyond the dance floor and mat. I welcome individuals that want to embark on a journey of mind-body-soul exploration.  Dedication is necessary, willingness to drop the ego and learn new things – with a space to share our journey along the way.  All sorts of people come here, all for the same purpose, growth – which ends up coming to us in many forms. 

where is it

EM family is all over the world - the community is vast. The program is hosted through Wix and the Fit by Wix app. 

How does it work

Every day there is a challenge of the day as well as a journal prompts. Record your practice (this helps us to analyze and learn faster) and if you are sharing/taking part in the community portion, this is where you can share your video to your socials (story or post) tagging @elev8edmovement and send it to the group. The online course releases daily, unlocking the next step only by completing the previous one. There is no specific time you have to be available - complete the challenge when you make the time to.  There are many different portions of this challenge to take part in, so be as thorough as you please.  What you put into this experience is exactly what you will get out.

when is it

Whenever you are ready to start!

why fundamentals

I created this challenge as I saw many in the community were confused about
the difference between cutting shapes and shuffling – so that is where we spend a lot of time in this challenge. I also saw that many were lacking in the departments of balance, flexibility, mobility, and stability - we need yoga. We work foundation, technique, fundamentals, and groove because these are the tools that allow us to freely express ourselves within our favorite movements. Think of it as vocabulary and learning to speak more fluently.  We explore and develop our own style while honoring the culture and history of what has come before us. When we care about what we do, and we know why we do what we do, we get more out of our experiences.  This is bigger than us, it's bigger than dance.
