it'd be pretty amazing to train people MovNat and i reckon id be ok at teaching but theres NO WAY ive got the physicality, id say Erwans looking for people who kick ass.

Now that Erwan's settled in Boulder Colorado, I'm sure a lot more people from the US will be able to train with him.

He's been up in Washington State, and trained with Rafe a few times.
He just finished his seminars in West Virginia... none of those were cert seminars, though.

It sounds like level 1 cert lets you introduce people to MovNat. I don't remember the cost - probably fairly pricey, judging from the seminars this summer. I'm guessing you need to have a good fitness level, but don't need to be a super-monster.

I think I posted the qualifications for his advanced seminar in the MovNat thread. It was hard, but not impossible.

Yeah, the advanced requirements are a bit rough...

Holding breath: I think for Erwan, it's on land. For Hebert, it's underwater, completely submerged [but it's not 90 seconds!]

At least it gives you something to work towards...
