Join us for the Animal Flow® Level 1 Workshop in Tokyo, Japan, on May 28-29, 2022. The two-day event is six hours each day, from 10am to 4pm, on Saturday and Sunday. It will be hosted at SHOJIN Show-Base Tokyo. This workshop will be taught in Japanese, by Master Instructor Jin Takazawa.
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.

We plan to hold this workshop in-person on the scheduled date. However, we must also be prepared to react to changes in circumstances due to COVID-19. It is possible that a workshop may have to be rescheduled if government regulations require closing of venues or other restrictions, and/or restrict travel in a way that makes the workshop impossible to hold. If a workshop is postponed due to COVID or other unforeseen circumstances, you will be offered the option to transfer to the future workshop or to take the workshop online. If you are absolutely unable to transfer to one of the future options, you can contact our partner to find out your options. If a workshop must be postponed due to circumstances beyond our control (such as COVID-19 restrictions), we are not responsible for any travel or other costs you may have already incurred. If you plan to travel to attend a workshop, we suggest obtaining travel insurance.
