Assistant Instructors will be present in the workshop to help with hands-on practice, while the Master Instructor will provide the overall instruction utilizing the interactive live screen broadcast…making this such a unique and awesome experience!

Take your Animal Flow practice to a higher level of understanding at the Level 2 Workshop from August 6-7, 2022 in Hong Kong. It will be hosted at Optimum Performance Studio, home of Animal Flow Hong Kong. Master Instructor Alisha Smith will be teaching in English, with Chinese translation. The Level 2 workshop is open to anyone who has taken Level 1.
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.
ABOUT LEVEL 2
Building upon the strong foundations learned in Level 1, Level 2 teaches 10 more new moves, as well as progressions for hand balancing. You’ll delve into more advanced concepts like energy transfers, tempo changes and using animal locomotion in flows, while engaging in intermediate level flow design. Read more about the LEVEL 2 WORKSHOP HERE.
Participants will learn how to successfully perform the Level 2 exercises, as well as how to correctly integrate the movements with Level 1 to create extended Flows with an increased degree of complexity and intensity. Participants also learn how to instruct the movements and incorporate them into a training program. Emphasis is placed on understanding how the Level 2 movements train the fascial slings of the body; understanding the role of dissipating force, fluidity, and leverage in the advanced movements; and understanding how to instruct a range of progressive drills and conditioning exercises that form the introduction to hand balancing practice.
The full-day agenda includes:
- Review of key Level 1 moves
- Intro to Hand Balancing: Tuck Balance Progressions
- New Transitions: Reaching Underswitch; Reaching Underswitch to Deep Ape; Scorpion Sweeps; Roll Throughs; and Crocodile Rolls, Pop Switches and Pop Outs;
- New Traveling forms: Bear, Leopard, Crocodile;
- Using traveling forms as a “link” for switches and transitions;
- How and why to introduce tempo change and energy redirects into a flow;
- Intermediate flow design

Cancellations and Refunds
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 request a refund. 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.
If a workshop remains scheduled to take place, but you are unable to attend due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, or due to infection or exposure, you can transfer the full value of your registration payment to a future workshop. If you request a refund in lieu of transfer to a future workshop, the following terms apply: If there are more than 30 days to workshop, 100% of registration minus $20 processing fees provided; if there are 14-30 days to workshop, a $50 cancellation fee is applied; less than 14 days to workshop a $100 cancellation fee is applied.
We understand that many unforeseen circumstances can occur, particularly when COVID-19 is involved. That is why we offer to transfer 100% of your payment to another workshop. However, if you must receive a cash refund instead, we need to apply the referenced processing fees in order to cover the costs we cannot recover for canceled registrations.
