Nearly a year since I posted anything here. I’ve just finished one of two degrees, and I’ve just moved to the Blue Mountains, near Sydney, so now that I have some time I will be updating all of this website over the coming month or so. Stay tuned!


Our next retreat is very soon, Thursday to Monday, August 6-10. Contact me by email if you’re interested at simon.thakur@gmail.com, for more info and the signup page go to Craig’s site at http://awarerelaxedconnected.com.au/retreats/, or check out the photos on the Natural Movement Canberra Facebook  page.



Basically it’s five days in the bush with awesome people, in a beautiful secluded natural spot by the Deua river (southern NSW), practicing movement, meditation and rewilding stuff in the forest. Parkour stuff and acrobatics, meditation, qigong, wrestling, capoeira, contact improv, martial arts, rock lifting, butoh, sneaking and tracking games, foraging for bush tucker and weeds, massage, fire-by-friction, stone tool making, barefoot running, bow-making and archery are all things that tend to get done on these retreats, the community is growing and so the pool of knowledge and skill at each event is becoming quite incredible. And very fun.


Other news will have to wait for the moment. In the meantime, here’s a great video – containing essential information that absolutely everyone should know – about chordates.
