Welcome to this eight-week video series brought to you exclusively by Whole Life Challenge in partnership with MovNat. Each week, coach Danny Clark will teach you new movements designed to increase your mobility. These practices are optional and are simply one of the many ways you can accomplish your ten daily minutes of mobility.
In this series, we’re going to focus on ground-based movements that will build your mobility. By the end of eight weeks, you’ll have a whole repertoire of movements you can practice. And if you practice these movements regularly, they will also build body awareness, stability, strength, and awareness of your environment. Plus, you might just have some fun.

MovNat 10-Minute Mobility Practice: Week 2
We’re going to build on what you’ve been practicing for the last week. So visualize what you did yesterday, and go through that same sequence again. It should be fairly familiar to you by now. Once you’ve completed that sequence, we’re going to work our way through this:
- Front rocking (supine/belly up) — 5 reps
- Side roll to stomach
- Knee hand rocking — 5 reps
- Side roll to back
- Repeat 2-3 times
- Finish with breathing in lying position — 10 breaths
If you are brand-new to any kind of movement practice, don’t worry – these movements are scalable to all fitness levels and body types and I’ll show you how to do that in each video. No matter what “shape” you’re in, you may be surprised at what is difficult and what comes easily. The important thing is to listen to your body and back off if something doesn’t feel right.
