At Santa Cruz Movement (SCM) we are building a community around a movement practice influenced by the work and philosophies of the Ido Portal Method. In our group classes our students develop and refine linear and organic strength, mobility, coordination, physical intelligences and cultivate an awareness of a MOVEMENT and an INTERNAL practice.

We want our students to develop a generalist movement perspective; oriented towards growth and evolution across all fields and areas in life. Our practice blends elements from several specialist disciplines such as dance, gymnastics, martial arts, yoga and parkour. Our focus is to foster deep exploration and discovery in each individual no matter their skill level and to encourage creativity and play.
