Baseworks is a movement method that helps anyone better feel and understand the body. The method, and the conceptual framework it creates, also explores the direct effect that the practice has on perception, introspection, problem solving, productivity and other aspects of cognition. These transmissions will cover practice and theory and also feature conversations with like minded collaborators to explore mutual interests and to work toward developing a common vocabulary to penetrate topics which are typically only explored experientially.

    Ryan Hurst: On Japan, Movement Autonomy & Community

    In this episode, Patrick Oancia talks with Ryan Hurst about his immersion into Gymnastics in Wichita, Kansas, from a young age through to decades as a devoted martial artist and ex-pat in Japan.  

    His immersion into the Japanese culture was shaped by these and other experiences, and that all led to his co-founding GMB Fitness in 2010. 

    About Ryan

    Reflections: On Playing, Training & Challenge

    Reflections: On Playing, Training & Challenge

    This is the companion REFLECTIONS Transmission for the conversation that Patrick Oancia had with Yuval Ayalon. It would make the most sense to first listen to that episode here.

    This Reflection looks at Yuval’s journey from competitive gymnastics to contemplative handstand practice and discusses the concept of foundation in physical skill development. It also talks about the tendency of well-learned skills to escape our awareness.

    To watch the video version or read this companion Reflection instead, please go here. 

    As a recap, in the On Playing, Training & Challenge episode, Patrick Oancia chats with Yuval Ayalon about his transition from being a kid swinging on trees, right through to being a competitive gymnast, and performance artist, and finally ending up a globally renowned teacher of hand-balances.

    The discussion hit a lot of interesting points on the development of skills, dealing with stress, and directing intentions and focus to where they need to be at each step.

    In this conversation Patrick Oancia chats with Yuval about his transition from being a kid swinging on trees, right through to being a competitive gymnast, performance artist and finally ending up a globally renowned teacher of hand balances.  

    There's a lot of ground covered that relates to how to commit to a practice, the approach and attitude that one would take towards stress in competition and thereafter, trying to understand how to fit all these pieces into a type of life which can be fulfilling and positive.
