MovNat is short for Moving Naturally.

MovNat-LogoIt is a health & fitness discipline based on the overall practice of natural human movement skills. It was defined and popularized by Erwan Le Corre as early as 2008. You become very fit through the practice and that fitness is applicable to any area of life.

  • Locomotive: walking, running, jumping, balancing, crawling, climbing, aquatics (swimming, etc)
  • Manipulative: lifting, carrying, throwing, catching
  • Combatives: striking, grappling


The Goal

MovNat-Human NaturallyThe primary goal of MovNat is to reset people in their original – i.e evolutionary and biological movement behavior – in order to foster, restore and/or maintain health, fitness, well-being, happiness, and even a sense of freedom.

Such competency is timeless, and the individuals who possess it are strong in a way that is useful to themselves, others and the community.
