what is movement tallinn?
We are a movement-loving group in Tallinn where different movements and playfulness are united. Our training takes place at workday evenings and in two mornings. There are also camps for adults near Tallinn. Our participants are open-minded and interested in finding the possibilities and boundaries of their bodies. They won't accept group workouts in a regular gym or fitness club, they want to be the masters of their bodies and move as naturally and freely as possible. We believe that they are more intelligent than average because of genuinely interested in their bodies and their capabilities.
People like new things, new trends are constantly coming to the market, which for a while are a "new hot trend" but will soon be replaced by "new hot". Movement may sound modern, but in reality, it is a rediscovery of good old gymnastics. It is a mix of gymnastics, modern dance, yoga, coordination drills from ball games and martial arts, and much more. The main goal is to improve mobility and quality of life through playful and sometimes improvisational movement. As today's fast-paced lives and different conveniences put our bodies in various forced positions, we also place great emphasis on relaxation and release techniques. A tense and closed body restricts our physical attainment and also makes us mentally more fatigued, the same problem appears when the body is too relaxed.
In training, we're trying to find balance and control. The body looks free, your posture is beautiful and ready for the maximum effort at any time, for example, to sprint for a bus, to maintain balance when slipping, or to jump over the fence when necessary. Also, we continually introduce and discover different movement patterns such as handstand, muscle up, rolling on the mat and much more. The skills and knowledge to use the body are the main things we teach people because a multifunctional body that is well-developed and well-coordinated looks good anyway.

OTHERS TALKING ABOUT US
"Asko is one of the greatest coaches I know. It's never boring in his classes and after every session I can feel, that my body is changing and getting better (for example next day I can feel aching muscles, which I didn't know they exist). Coordination, strength, balance and mobility improves notably. Exercises are adapted for your level and there are always different variations you can choose."
"This workout changes your reaction speed, coordination, balance etc. Totally different workout compared to other gyms and clubs."
"What I like most about the movement is the playfulness and the fact that every workout has a lot of different movement exercises. In training you can take yourself out, especially after a tiring day at work. Movement makes mood cheerful and body strong”
"Movement has offered multiple different exercises to add some spice to my daily athletics training sessions. If some exercises in my own event are making me yawn, then movement offers some challenges for my body every single time. In Movement body, there is a healthy mind.”
"Sport has never been for me. I have always been moving at my own pace. About a year ago, I had my very first movement training. At the end of it, I had the same thoughts as now- I want to do it more and in the same fun way.
It is not always easy, it is rather hard, but always possible and doable! Movement isn't just a physical workout that we are trying to offer to our bodies. It is a training where you "need to be there" with your thoughts and for everybody else. With fun, the right mindset and the best company- everything is possible.“
"Movement has been really relieving for me, physically I have fewer limits and more skills, and I have learned to play again and learned to enjoy that. Movement's people are like weird stepfamily if you wish, or just exposed training buddies, if it works better for you.”
It's possible to have a fun and active birthday for your children or for yourself. Pretty often we organise weddings, birthdays and company events - so you can trust us, we know what we are doing :)
NB! In the gym you can only pay in cash!

Last two years she has been a Fighting Monkey student, which has given her enormous movement base. There are lot of playfulness and dancing in her workouts. You will start to see the limits of your body and you're going to push them in every class. You don't have to be a dancer to join with Helinas classes ;)

Kristella is an Estonian Champion in the heptathlon and Estonian record holder in decathlon. Has been in the middle of the sport throughout her entire life. When it is possible to move, play or compete- Kristella is the first one in place.
Kristella fell in love with movement at first sight because of its playfulness and thousands of opportunities.
