Animal Flow Level 1 Bern Switzerland (May)
May 14, 2022 - May 15, 2022
Join us for the Animal Flow® Level 1 Workshop in Bern, Switzerland on May 14-15, 2022. The two-day event is 6.5 hours each day, Saturday and Sunday from 10:30am to 5:00pm. We’ll be partnering again with UNIK Sports, home of Animal Flow in Switzerland. This workshop will be taught in English, by Master Instructor Agostino Celia.
L1 is an intensive two-day workshop (13 hours total) where you’ll learn all 30 Level 1 moves, including regressions, progressions, and variations for all skill levels. You’ll explore how and when to use each movement individually, as well as how to link them together into flows of your own design. This is also your first step toward becoming a Certified Animal Flow Instructor (if you meet the other qualifications). You can find the details on the Certification process and benefits HERE.
About the Course
You’ll cover all 6 elements of Animal Flow, including the Traveling Forms (the “ABCs” of animal movements); Switches and Transitions; Wrist Mobility; Activations; Form Specific Stretches, and, of course, Flows. The workshop starts with base positions, which systematically build in difficulty and complexity over the two days. Movements are taught within the context of scientifically-based concepts relevant to anyone working in health and fitness industries.

We have scheduled this workshop for the noted dates under the hopeful assumption that the coronavirus crisis will have subsided enough by then that we can go back to holding live workshops. We will, however, continue to monitor the situation. As we get closer to the planned date, if it appears that it would not be safe to hold the event, it will be postponed. If we postpone the event you will have the option to transfer into another future event, or to take the online version offered via live video remote. Thank you for understanding as we all try to move forward under these difficult circumstances.
