welcomeNatural Method training course
There are three ways to approach physical education
- Sports that orient and train specific abilities (for example football, tennis, etc)
- Analytic methods that focus on training specific aspects of the body (for example cardio exercises)
- 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.
