Animal Flow Level 2 Instructor Certification
Fri August 16 @ Time: 9:30 am - 7:30 pm$3900.00
Animal Flow Level 2 is for all you Certified Animal Flow Instructors who are ready to take your practice up another level! Now that you’ve learned the basics, it’s time to start adding in new moves, playing with your flows, incorporating more hand balancing, and getting more advanced in both your movement and your flow design. Animal Flow Instructor Richard Scrivener will teach this 10 hour course, and you are sure to have a great time exploring your movement!
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. And, participants will become better movers and fitness professionals!
The full-day agenda includes:
- Review of key Level 1 moves
- Introduction to Hand Balancing: Tuck Balance Progressions
- New Transitions: Reaching Underswitch; Reaching Underswitch to deep Ape; Scorpion Sweeps; Roll Throughs; Crocodile Rolls and 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) – 0.9 CE; American Fitness Association of America (AFAA) – 9.0 CEUs.
Who Is Eligible?

Test out Process for Level 2:
There is a Test Out required for L2. Like Level 1, it requires submitting videos after the fact, although the video requirements are different. Part 1 is them teaching 3 of the Level 2 moves to someone else; Part 2 is performing a 3-minute flow that includes specific required elements. The test out instructions can be found in the following.
