At Santa Cruz Movement (SCM) we are building a community around a movement practice influenced by the work and philosophies of Ido Portal. In our group classes our students develop and refine spinal health, strength, mobility, coordination, prehab/rehab protocols 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 an open-mind and play.

Leela Kalow and Dean Yerushalmy are the only two people in Santa Cruz, California teaching classes based on the work and philosophies of Ido Portal under his direct guidance in his Mentorship Program. Ido formulated a pioneering Movement Culture blending elements of several physical disciplines. We are honored to be in this select group of mentees from all over the world who come together throughout the year to continue our studies and to build our own communities through movement. Our varied backgrounds in sports and dance is what lead us organically to study with Ido
