Animal Flow Level 1 Bern Switzerland (Oct)
October 22 - October 23
Join us for the Animal Flow® Level 1 Workshop in Bern, Switzerland on October 22-23, 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.
