A life practice.


My name is Rich and I began my practice in 2015 when I discovered the Ido Portal Method. 


His views on physicality changed the way I experience a life inside of a body and it opened my eyes to the possibility of a long-term playful and infinite journey.


One that took me from gymnastics to one arm handstands to meditation, parkour and traditional Chinese martial arts. 


Over the course of 5+ years, I practiced 6 days a week for multiple hours a day under the guidance of mentorship students. 


"I gave myself the simple task to show up."



Discover your physicality.


It is my aim to develop Movement Practice Amsterdam into a cultivation ground for practitioners who are looking into physicality for self-discovery and self-research.


As a student you start with basic strength, mobility and handstand development.


And over time you discover how these are tools to discover how you deal with challenging and changing circumstances.


It's a process through which you can ultimately choose what you want to practice and how you can develop a body that allows you to do so.







Consider everything an experiment.


In sessions, I use the perspective of a researcher within and with(out) the body.


You develop strength that can be applied in chaos. Flexibility that protects you against injury. Freedom to play and improvise until an old age. 


I facilitate your physical change or development from one place to the other.

That's why it's a Movement. Journey.
