WHAT
TENGU IS?

IT ALL STARTS WITH AN IDEA

People say… and yes – it’s partly true but in my case it started from profound FEELING that gave birth to the idea. TENGU is a state of mind for me – and yes – for gods sake it EVOLVES together with all of us.

What was the feeling you ask?

Did you have a feeling that you want to wrap your wings around people, give them warmth, care, knowledge- make them selfconfident and couragoes?

That you want to grow your wings radicioulusly long so that you can REACH broader spectre of people, touch their lifes?

That kind if feeling.

Tengu was born as symbol of aprenticeship, student – coach relation, wisdom and care. Inspired by Japanese mitology- forest, winged creature with a long nose, pictured sometimes as a older man with long robe with a walking stick – learning the masterless samurai (ronin) – the art of the sword.

The clear, strong and radiant symbol of that we wish to achieve in this world.

It all starts with Feeling and Im really thankful that you are part of our journey.

Pawel.

TENGU
ELEMENT CYCLE SYSTEM

WHAT IS THE ELEMENT CYCLE SYSTEM?

This tool will be used in diagnostics, intensity management and periodization of our coaches and has been tested in the fitness industry in last 5 years. Tengu ECS will bring the balance to the fitness industry. Balance it demands and deserves. Tengu ECS is the most natural holistic health management tool our coaches are proud to have in their tool box. Our task is to connect and bind all the sphears we are made of: the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, and give real people education to be able to manage their own health and wellbeing.

Tengu ECS is the first true Holotropic system in the fitness industry and cutting edge training method that people of all fitness levels can access. We do not do circus tricks! We do structured health centered strength training to create optimal function and well rounded development. A long distance runner may have poor upper body strength and can struggle to perform a basic squat. A yoga practitioner may struggle to pick up heavy objects. These are just a selection of very general examples but the point is that we aim to educate and provide the platform to safely allow people to balance all aspects of their health and fitness in order to create a high level of general preparedness. We need to be equally as fit in our mobility and flexibility as we are in strength or core stability.

The system we use to facilitate our ability to manage our health is the Elements cycle. This will give you the paradigm to understand your own physical needs and also to be able to address the issue quickly and safely. This paradigm forms the basis of our level one TENGU ECS Movement Coach Level 1 Certification. It can be used as a diagnostic tool to see what elements of your training are lacking or overworking. It can be used to plan your periodization so that you can safely train every day. It can also be used to structure your actual workout on any given day. Practical usefulness of high level education provided by Tengu ECS and a cutting edge understanding of good exercise technique combined with the Element Cycle will ensure that you are able to train and remain healthy for a long time to come.
