What is Primal Movement?

Humans have evolved to move in order to survive. The ability to crawl, then squat, walk & run lead to more complex movements that allowed us to move to the ground, to drink water, run down animals to eat & run away from predators, climb, jump, and rest. All of this has resulted in the body we inherit today. The regular, daily action of performing these fundamental movements is what keeps our body healthy, mobile and strong. These primal movements meant survival once upon a time, but these days simply mean a better quality of life.
