Kyle Fincham is the creator of Infinite Play, a movement workshop that explores playfulness by reconnecting us with our creative, adaptive, and cooperative potential. Infinite Play workshops are accessible to all misfits, wildlings, and nonconformists. Kyle also hosts Behind the Movement, a weekly podcast where he speaks with movement makers of all types about their stories, thoughts, and philosophies. He also regularly writes articles expressing his ideas and wonderings for his blog. Kyle aims to share and explore this passion for playfulness through all areas of his life, teaching, and art.
Kyle grew up in Lake Tahoe and found his passion for teaching while working as a ski instructor. He studied theater at UCLA, where he could be found regularly in Vaudeville class. In 2005 he moved to New York to pursue a career in stand-up comedy. After almost 10 years of chasing laughs, he realized his fascination with movement, and decided to leave the yucks behind to follow this new path.
Kyle is a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, is deeply influenced by both Tom Weksler and the Fighting Monkey Practice, and was a student of Ido Portal from 2015-2020. Kyle reads often and travels near and far to attend workshops and seminars, expanding his experience of different movement tools, approaches, and philosophies.
