Natural Method training course
holistic ecology

There are three ways to approach physical education 

  1. Sports that orient and train specific abilities (for example football, tennis, etc)
  2. Analytic methods that focus on training specific aspects of the body (for example cardio exercises)
  3. The Natural Method

The Natural Method is based on the natural movements and gestures of our species in it’s environment: walking, running, jumping, defense, etc

It takes into consideration the whole of the human being: the body not only as a tool, but as a dimension of oneself. This method, also called the “Hebert Method”, cultivates an integral and ecological vision of health and wellness, bringing a sense of purpose and a sense of joy.


An obvious meeting with Montessori


The principles of the Natural Method are in tune with the Montessori pedagogy. This can be seen through four main aspects:

  • The students gain responsibility and awareness as they assist the monitor.
  • Individual performance is in service of the collective.
  • The freedom and respect of each individual’s rhythm and limits are at the heart of the practice. As well as an invitation to go beyond one’s limits.
  • Joy and collaborations as key motor-elements during practice.
