Meet Ido

At an early age, Ido had the realization that he doesn't just love Martial Arts or Strength or this or that, but he is actually obsessed with... Movement. Over the years, he has traveled the world both teaching and studying from a variety of teachers: from Osteopaths, Manual Therapists and MD's to Professional Dancers, Yogis, Athletes, Circus Performers and Fighters. He does not neglect any angle, from nutritional approaches to movement & health to Functional Anatomy & Physiology to methodology of the training process to mental aspects of movement practice and more. He has formed a body of knowledge and a point of view on Movement Education, development, cultivation. He teaches workshops around the globe — Asia, Europe, the US, Canada, Russia and the Middle East. He has also started a community and culture around movement called Movement Culture that represents a contemporary paradigm shift in physicality, moving us away from main culprits in movement and fitness as well as the separation between health, aesthetics, performance and art. Click here to read Ido's full bio.
