Our Animal Flow workshops are targeted toward fitness professionals who want to learn how to incorporate Animal Flow into their own teaching, training, and coaching practices. This includes personal trainers, group fitness instructors, physical education teachers, coaches, yoga instructors, MMA trainers, and even physical therapists.
Animal Flow Level 1 is an intensive two-day workshop where you’ll master the moves, delve into the science behind Animal Flow, and learn how to effectively use the practice with your own clients. The focus of the Level 1 curriculm is on mastering each move, including the regressions, progressions and variations you’ll need in order to maximize effectiveness with your clients. With each move, you’ll explore the important questions of how and when to use it, and where it fits into your clients’ training program and your own workout routine. And, of course, you’ll get into the Flows, where you link together the movements. You’ll cover all 6 elements of Animal Flow, including:
• The Traveling Forms (the “ABCs” of animal movements)
• Switches and Transitions
• Wrist Mobility
• Form Specific Stretches
You’ll learn much more than just mastering the movements though – you’ll learn to better understand integrated movement and bodyweight training. Most importantly, you will learn how to move better! The carry over will improve your performance (and your clients’ performance) no matter how you integrate Animal Flow into your training.
Level 1 Certification:
In order to become a Certified Animal Flow Instructor, you must pass the live practical exam after completing the workshop. Simply completing the two-day workshop will not make you certified – we want to make sure all of our instructors meet the program’s standards, so you’ll need to demonstrate some components (live or via video submission) after the workshop. If you practice, you will pass!
