Practical Movement

 Registration is closed for this event
Movement for the field, the forest and the functionality of everyday life.

This practical movement class is informed by the various tasks one might find themselves doing in the garden, in the wild spaces around their house or local park, or just while living their lives. The main goal is to begin to develop a new “movement lens” and to build physical resilience by moving, breathing and observing. Join us for this one-of-a-kind class as we explore natural movement, breathwork, specific body part exercises, functional/dynamic movements and restorative stretches. 

This program is part of an ongoing series. Join us each Thursday evening in May from 5:00 - 6:15 pm as we cultivate a movement practice that meets you where you are. The first step toward positive change is knowing our capabilities and our limitations.

We ask each new student to fill out an assessment form so we can gather information on each participants level of comfortability. Once in person, we’ll have a short conversation about goals and then we’ll get MOVING in that direction.


About the Instructor: 

Born in York County, Andrew earned his Business Management degree from Shippensburg University. After graduation, Andrew traveled with World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) to New Zealand, where he lived and learned on organic farms. Captivated by his experience, Andrew wanted to continue his journey in small-scale agriculture and sought to find a place where he could apply, develop and learn new skills. He found the Horn Farm Center through an Introduction to Permaculture class. Since successful completion of the Farming Internship, Andrew has pursued his career in farming as the Farm Manager at the Horn Farm Center. He runs the Horn Farm Plant Sale & Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program, manages the Community Gardens, and guides participants through hands-on instruction in the Land Steward Training Program.

Even though Andrew considered himself "active", after a few short years of farm and forest work, he realized that if he wanted to be a land steward for life he would have to pay closer attention to how he was using his body. He took steps to try and understand practices to bolster and prepare for any number of dynamic tasks (and low energy/static tasks too) and ways to recover and address acute soreness/discomfort. While not certified in any specific movement modality Andrew practices MovNat, Yoga, and trains KneesOverToes on a daily basis.
