Animal Flow Level 1 Los Angeles (Sep)

September 11, 2021 - September 12, 2021

Join us for the Animal Flow® Level 1 Workshop in Los Angeles on September 11-12, 2021 The two-day event is 6.5 hours each day, from 9am to 3:30pm on Saturday and Sunday. It will be hosted at Downtown LA Loft Space. This workshop will be taught in English, by Program Creator Mike Fitch.

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.

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.

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.

Covid-19 Policy Update:

We are looking forward to being able to hold this workshop in-person, and are taking precautions to ensure the health and safety of attendees. You should still be aware that there is still some risk associated with attending, as this is an indoor event that lasts 7 hours each day.

We will require all attendees to wear masks, as is legally required for all indoor venues in Los Angeles County. In addition, Mike Fitch and the other 7 Master Instructors who are attending are all fully vaccinated. The room is large enough that we can practice social distancing. We sometimes work in “breakout groups” where students will need to be speaking to each other while working in smaller groups, and we will require that masks stay on at all times during breakout groups.

However, we do recognize that people may need to remove their masks at some times, including to eat during breaks, and to catch their breath after a difficult segment. Thus, while we will make every effort to ensure the workshop complies with local regulations and that participants are safe, we cannot provide a 100% guarantee against spread of COVID-19. If you are particularly at-risk for COVID-19 infection, we recommend waiting for another workshop. Hopefully we will come to a day in the near future when indoor events will carry less risk.

Cancellations/Refunds:

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.
