A 6 element movement program to improve strength, mobility, coordination, power, and endurance.
For a visual think if yoga and breakdancing had a lovechild!
For myself and many others, it's a form of movement meditation, creative outlet and a source of movement that can be done anywhere with purely just your body.

Animal Flow is a ground-based bodyweight movement discipline. You will learn how to reconnect with your body to improve strength, control, power, flexibility, and mobility. Which in turn leaves you to unleash your inner beast!
WHY LEARN ANIMAL FLOW?
Do you feel disconnected from your body?
Do you go through your regular workouts, not really sure what you should be feeling?
For many, we don’t become conscious of what our bodies are experiencing until that experience is pain. We aren’t mindful of how our bodies are feeling until it’s too late.
With traditional approaches to fitness, there is a large emphasis on equipment and external implements, which is a contributing factor to this disconnect.
With Animal Flow, a unique bodyweight training discipline, I will invite you back into your own body again. Together, we will help you rediscover what it feels like to be truly connected with your physical body.
Through ground-based movement, and challenging yourself to move in new and novel ways, you will build strength, coordination, and a better understanding of how your body likes to move.
