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.
I started working with Sam because I had chronic knee pain which I had already tried to solve with a number of fitness professionals. Sam was the first person to approach it from a holistic point of view, using his own experience together with my own data that I shared with him.
After the first session, I trusted Sam to help me reinvent my entire physical practice. He designed a routine which allowed me to reverse my way out of knee pain whilst progressing my mobility, strength and skills goals. This was less than 6 months ago, and I have learned so much about my body.
The knee pain is the lowest it’s ever been, I am more bendy than ever, and I’m starting to hold handstands! Thank you so much Sam
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.
