Hello, and welcome!
I'm Sam Tyson, and I'm a Movement Coach
My desire to teach movement and mindfulness stems from my own passion for them. I've studied many disciplines, from martial arts to ultra endurance to contemporary dance to climbing... I’m always looking to learn something new and I love working with my students to figure things out.
You’ll usually find me climbing a tree or the side of a building, upside down in a park or losing myself in nature. My life philosophy comes down to joy and simplicity: I do the things I love and look for quality over quantity.
I strongly believe that the most fulfilling physical practice must combine a strong feeling of community, connection and play, alongside a rich, introspective, focussed self practice. My intention in my group classes and workshops is to create a space within which we can learn and practice together.
For students who want to go further in their practice beyond group training, I have some availability for private students.
I look for students who already have some investment in a physical practice, no matter the discipline, but who feel they want extra support to delve deeper into that practice. This could be through a combination of physical work, mindset or mindfulness practices, or lifestyle coaching to optimise your diet, sleep or lifestyle.
Sam is an amazing coach and I couldn't recommend him enough. We've been working together for over a year and it's difficult to put into words how my movement practice has transformed since then.
He is incredibly skilled, patient and supportive, always looking for creative and playful ways to explore movement patterns I find challenging or overwhelming. He is not only incredibly supportive during our sessions but has been providing me with regular feedback on my homework, allowing me to build a weekly routine that has taken my handstand practice to the next level both physically and mentally.
