Animal Flow Level 1 Christchurch POSTPONED (May)
May 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am - May 24, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
We have stopped selling registrations for this workshop, due to the uncertainty surrounding the situation with the Coronavirus (Covid-19). We are working with the venue to identify a new date, probably in October. If you are already registered for this workshop, we will contact you regarding options. We thank you for your patience and understanding in these difficult times. Stay healthy and safe!
Join us for the Animal Flow® Level 1 Workshop in Christchurch, New Zealand, on May 23-24, 2020. The two-day event is six hours each day, from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday. It will be hosted at Les Mills Christchurch City Club. This workshop will be taught in English, by Master Instructor Andrew Chadwick.
L1 is an intensive two-day workshop (12 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.
The workshop is open to fitness professionals and non-professionals, as we welcome everyone interested in becoming a better mover. Fitness professionals are eligible to become Certified AF Instructors, who are allowed to teach AF in personal training, group fitness classes, or other fitness programs. Becoming certified requires completing the test process after the workshop. Non-professionals all welcome to take the course for their own benefit, but are not authorized to teach it without first attaining an appropriate fitness credential. You can find the details on the certification process and benefits HERE.
About the Course
You’ll cover all 6 components 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. By the end of the second day, the entire class will be performing a sequence known as the Beast flow which integrates a large majority of the movements from the workshop. This becomes a structure from which they may begin their own creative practice.
