CoordinationKonstantinos Moraitis

18 - 24 August


Duration: 30 Hours

Timeline: 10.30 – 14.00 & 17.00 – 19.30

Language: Greek, English



A Mover is someone who sees beyond the technicalities of each movement pursuit or discipline. Someone who finds interest and wishes to understand the body, health, performance and physical artistic expression.

If you recognize yourself as a Mover and want to develop yourself as one, it is highly recommended to attend Ido Portal seminars.

Ido Portal is a revolutionary method of movement that combines quadrilateral and grounded movement with elements of different kinesiological streams, in order to create a demanding, multi-layered and fluid movement. This method results from the modern change in human physiology, which takes us away from daily movement. A mix of acrobatics and elements of animal movement, which reminds us of the capabilities of our body.

A primary goal is to create dialogue and a cross disciplinary exchange of information between various types of movers. Information that was isolated in specific practices, but this information was not shared.
Another goal is to assist a person to acquire a new perception of his body, to develop his overall flexibility, hand stands through ground exercises, games with tennis balls etc.
Utilizing guided improvisations for the development of systems of the body (joints, muscle mass, nervous system and spirit), the trainees will adjust and expand their kinesiological limits through 52 officially registered animal movements.
