introduction to ferus animi // terra nova
over 6 days we will look to explore the principles of movement and performance that underlie our ferus animi // terra nova research methodology. it will involve a daily form of mobilisations to expose ourselves to movement nourishment for health, athleticism and longevity. it will involve solo and group improvisation to explore creativity, imagination and visualisation. it will also involve both collaborative and competitive partnering games, to shine a light on our movement blindspots. it will involve scientific theory around performance psychology, evolutionary physiology, behavioural neuroscience, and functional biomechanics. it will be physically challenging and mentally stimulating, and is designed to expose participants to a daily dose of functional failure. it will involve cultivating an open learning environment and motivational climate, in which participants can learn from themselves, each other, and the exercises, in an optimal developmental manner, guided by both the research and our instincts.
please be aware of our early bird special offer for this workshop! you can apply for this offer up until the 24th of march 2023. after the 24th the regular workshop fee applies. applications are accepted up until one day before the workshops starts.
