Our movement gym

We believe in connecting you to your highest level of physical capacity, fitness and vitality; it is a primary foundation of our holistic principles. Through movement you can expand your physical capacity, control and awareness to do whatever activities you want in life.

We aim to provide you with the training to improve all aspects of your physical abilities. Our method will deliver a strong, skilled and diverse level of movement capability. We draw inspiration and basic principles from strength training, gymnastics, sports, ground flow, calisthenics, dance, martial arts, yoga and whatever crosses our paths, and reshape it for a generalist approach.

Reconnecting the body to operate as a whole, strengthening weak patterns and mobilising restrictions are the basis to improving your power, control and grace.

Our movement gym offers classes for everyone – all abilities with progressions for the beginner through to the highly practiced. Through these classes, you will learn to do a broad range of skills freely with confidence. With this newfound self-reliance, you will feel stability, balance and coordination, understand and control what’s happening inside your body and be capable of trying new activities.

The teachers, Josh, Joe, Luke an Alex, are incredibly passionate and knowledgeable coaches. We walk the walk, by continually challenging and expanding our experienced based methodology. We invest heavily in our own learning to ensure you receive the best teaching available. The programming is specifically designed to maximise your development. The outcome is an impressively strong, mobile body (and mind) that is highly skillful, well balanced and resilient.

Power, mobility, balance, coordination and play are explored in the purpose-built movement gym using simple and highly effective tools such as sticks, bands, balls, bars, rings, mats, weights, ropes and floor work.

Regular practice leaves your body feeling strong, relaxed and energised; your mind sharper and able to learn new patterns and skills quicker; and your feelings, mood, and motivation levels heightened; this trio feeds back into one another to improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Course Descriptions

MOVEMENT – (Upper Body/ Lower Body/Whole Body)

These classes are for everyone. They develop all the physical characteristics needed to reach your movement potential. Concepts are drawn from numerous physical practices and reshaped for a generalist approach. Elements such as strength, balance, stability, coordination, power, flow, endurance, movement challenges and games are explored. We know how to work hard and play hard.

OVER 50’S MOVEMENT

Similar to our Movement classes with a slight shift of focus to improve movement quality, general strength & mobility, and rebuild the bodies dynamic attributes. Our Over 50s classes tend to be a whole lot of fun & laughter mixed in with some hard work.

MOBILITY

Our Mobility classes are designed to increase your range of motion as well as develop the strength, balance, and stability to better utilise and connect the body. Don’t expect to walk out without a sweat. All joints will be worked, with emphasis on the hips, spine and shoulders.

We use a variety of the most effective mobility methods to optimise your outcomes including: Partner Stretching, Task Orientated Stretching, Active Shortening, Loaded/Weighted Stretching, Ballistic Stretching, and Breath/Tension Release Techniques.

Our main purpose is to increase your movement capabilities, reduce tension and injuries, and make your structure as anti-fragile as possible.

WEIGHTLIFTING

This class will open many doors in your quest for improved general fitness and physical performance. The ability to move and control external loads develops the necessary power for broadly capable and graceful athletic abilities.  The primary tool used in this class is the barbell but will also use dumbbells and kettlebells. Fundamental lifting patterns will be developed with the progression to Olympic Weightlifting. The whole body multi-jointed nature of Olympic Weightlifting develops coordination, muscular synchronisation and cohesion, joint/ligament strength, balance, stability, as well improving sense of empowerment, self-belief, motivation and more. This class is a major key in unlocking your movement potential.

HAND BALANCING

Why hand balance? There are a load of reasons but here are a few. It is challenging and develops a highly capable upper body. It requires intense focus which brings your attention to the moment and is part of why it is so fun. With consistency, it opens up a new realm of movement which you can play, learn and progress with anywhere you like.

This class is for all levels from the beginner to the advanced. Its purpose is to develop all the attributes and skills to teach you to hand balance in its many forms. A primary focus is the handstand and if you are new to them, we will provide the foundational strength, mobility and awareness to get you going.

The more experienced students continue to build confidence and are progressing towards “free balancing” variations, yoga style hand balancing, parallette balancing, transitions between variations, press to handstand and more. So jump in and begin laying your foundations.

BREATH WORK

For anyone who wants to increase energy levels, develop lung capacity, reduce stress, and improve their overall mental and physical wellbeing. This class will expand our conscious awareness of our breathing patterns & apparatus.

Predominantly practical, with supportive theory to deepen our understanding. The class is a blend of Yoga Pranayama, Qi Gong practice, athletic free dive training, aspects of the Wim Hof Method and numerous other breath work practices. This mixture is a powerful combination for deepening awareness, expansion and relaxation.

Intro to MOVEMENT CLASSES

Have you heard of Movement? It’s a class that rebuilds our bodies to move as we should! Lead by passionate, highly knowledgeable teachers, Infuse Health Movement classes are open to all ages and capabilities with a focus on creating the best version of you.

MOVEMENT CLASSES || Push/Pull Progressions

Our movement gym offers classes for everyone – all abilities with progressions for the beginner through to the highly practiced. Through these classes, you will learn to do a broad range of skills freely with confidence.

MOVEMENT CLASSES || Games

There’s always a new challenge in movement. Whether it be games or play – we continually mix up the rules to create new learnings and experiences.

Play introduces the natural movement complexity that comes from human interaction. We use games for many reasons within the session – as a warmup, to refocus, to recover, joint preparation, and to work specific attributes. There is a starting point for everyone’s capabilities.

Movement F.A.Q.

Here is some commonly asked questions and hopefully we have answered yours. If not don’t hesitate to contact us.

The “Movement” we are referring to is the physical movement related to the human body both intrinsically and extrinsically. A movement practice develops and reconnects the body to reach its movement potential. The purpose is to create powerful, resilient, diversely capable and highly adaptable bodies. We aim to make you move how we were designed to and that is probably better than you could even imagine.

The classes are based around an intelligent yet simple process to build the higher level movement characteristics on top of a broad base of strength, mobility and resilience. The classes utilise highly effective methods and tools from numerous disciplines. Elements such as strength, mobility, balance, coordination, awareness, control and play are explored. To understand why we do what we do, the ‘Intro to Movement’ course is the best place to start.

As often as possible and sustainable for you. This also depends what else you do movement wise. We ideally will be moving for numerous hours every day at a range of intensities. This is not so easy to do with the modern lifestyle… but this does not make it any less vital to our health.

So come lots, join the growing community of awesome people and bring the people who you value most along for the ride.

Most definitely! Again, the ‘Intro to Movement’ course will let you hit the ground running. We have a diverse range of abilities and our classes cater for all levels. The atmosphere and culture prioritises the correct progressions for the individual to ensure you maximise your development and have a heap of fun in the process. Beginners are inspired and encouraged by teachers and other students. So if you want the highest quality coaching and the company of genuinely awesome people, this is the place to be.

 

Absolutely, but this is not a focus or priority. It is simply an unavoidable outcome. Because a movement practice is diverse, sustainable and encourages an active movement rich lifestyle, I would argue it is one of the best weight loss methods available.

Training for aesthetic improvement has an emptiness to both the process and the outcome and rarely works as the body is too complex to reverse engineer. “Movers” develop an athletic well-proportioned body that is highly capable and this is what we are instinctually attracted to.

Yes, all 4 of our movement teachers offer Personal Training with various availability. This can be a great starting point to build confidence or to address specific concerns. Some simply prefer the personalised training program to cater to their goals. Whatever your reason, we would be happy to provide the individualised attention of one on one or small group training.

We certainly do. We use the most effective tools and methods we can to serve our purpose. We train with bodyweight, external loads and partner loading. The ability to move and control external objects is an essential attribute of a healthy human. Loads start light until the movement pattern, joint range & stability and overall control is achieved to a high quality. We have evolved to be strong and powerful and is crucial to be physically capable as well as other benefits including hormone production, bone density, injury resilience, disease occurrence, and longevity. Weights such as barbells, dumbbells, and kettlebells are used for more than just strength development.

Classes are 75mins. This allows us to work on a diverse range of attributes. So much happens, they go incredible fast! Ideally they would be longer but it’s a compromise with our busy lives.

Not really. The why, the focus and the methods differ significantly. There are some similarities with regard to strength development, and conditioning work but the focus is on movement quality over output & intensity or to simply “exercise”. Within movement, there is a strong emphasis on control, mobility, joint stability & health, balance, re-alignment, coordination, spatial awareness and more. Our programming is specifically designed to build highly capable humans and is constantly adapted to best suit our community.

We encourage our member community to do both yoga and movement. A combined membership offers the best value and they complement each other incredibly well. Some choose to do one or the other but more than half choose a ratio that best suits their body, mind and lifestyle. Once you have adequately adapted to both programs and have the energy, you are most welcome to do back to back movement and yoga classes.

All our movement classes are capped at 16 people. This ensures the teaching and progressions are fully catered to everyone in the class. You will feel fully supported within the classes and the teacher will have ample time to address your questions so don’t hesitate to ask.

The movement teachers, Josh, Joe, Luke and Alex have been involved in physical training and specialisations through their entire lives. They have trained in high level sports, commercial gyms, CrossFit boxes, various martial arts and yoga studios. The common threads that directed them towards movement is the challenge to be diversely skilled, highly adaptable and resilient to injury. Movement also teaches people to be humble as there is no end to what can be learnt. The transition from our previous physical training to a movement focused practice began in 2014 when we first heard the name Ido Portal. The world of movement has some truly incredible teachers that have taught all of us through classes, workshops, online coaching and retreats. To name a few: Ido Portal, Simon Thakur, Craig Mallet, Dave Wardman, Rafe Kelley, Emmet Louis, Yuri Marmerstein, Gymnastic Bodies, Fighting Monkey and others.

Depends on the class time but at a minimum we make sure the front door is open at least 15mins prior to class. Feel free to use the gym whenever a class is not in progress. You are also welcome to stay around after class to work on anything you wish. Make sure you check in on the iPad prior to starting your practice.

Clothes that you can move completely freely in (best to throw out everything that limits movement). Layers are best in winter. Sweat towel in summer. Like the yoga studio, the movement gym is shoe free. And water bottle which you can refill at our water filter.

You can always drop in for a chat but we may not always be free if we are teaching or with a client. The Íntro to Movement’ course is strongly recommended as it is important for our students to understand why they are doing what they do.  It is best to get in touch beforehand to discuss the best options. Also keep in mind our classes are capped and some classes reach capacity. On your first visit, show up 15mins early to fill in the paperwork and to allow the teacher to learn some key information to best support your practice.
