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

Level 2 Continuing Education

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.

Who Is Eligible for L2?

To enroll in Level 2, you must have already taken the Level 1 workshop at least 30 days prior to the date of the L2 workshop. While we strongly recommend that you complete your Level 1 certification prior to the workshop, you may still enroll even if you have not fully completed the test process to become a Certified Instructor. Contact us if you still need to submit your videos but want to enroll in L2. We will make arrangements with you to ensure you can complete the Level 1 test out after the Level 2 workshop.

Note that while we do not require that you have completed certification, you MUST be up-to-date with your L1 practice and be very familiar with the moves. L2 is a long, frustrating day if you haven’t internalized the L1 moves.


The workshop will be taught by Animal Flow Master Instructor Jin Takazawa. Jin will teach in Japanese.

The event will take place at Link Dance Studio, in Osaka.

Cost and Registration

Price for L2 88000yen (tax included)

The workshop is 12 hours long, including a 30 minute break.

You will receive access to video tutorials for the Level 2 Traveling Forms as soon as you register.

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 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.
