Certification Instructors

Featured Instructor – Jim Romig

Jim Romig, the owner and head educator at Internal Roots Movement, has spent a good part of the past 13 years learning from some of the top unconventional/mindful movement coaches on the planet. The rest of that time has been spent teaching mindful movement philosophies to other coaches, athletes, and anyone else willing to listen to their bodies and get sweaty.

One of his goals is to educate the masses on mindful movement within any and every movement discipline, especially clubs and maces. Another goal is to help those masses honestly listen to what their bodies want and understand what their bodies need, instead of what their egos may want and need.

It’s all about articulating to make things work well, instead of mindlessly approximating and hoping for the best.
