Animal Flow Level 2 Melbourne (Dec)
December 7, 2019
Take your Animal Flow practice to a higher level of understanding at the one-day (10 hours) workshop on Saturday, December 7 in Melbourne, Australia. Master Instructor Alisha Smith will be teaching this event at the awesome Primal Moves Melbourne facility.
What’s Included in 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.
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
Participants are eligible to receive Continuing Education credits from National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) – .9 CE; American Fitness Association of America (AFAA) – 9 CEUs.
