If the idea of picking yourself up off the ground, rolling out of bed, or just getting out of a chair makes you think “Oh no, this isn’t going to be pretty” — then this is the class for you.
We’re living in a movement deficit right now, which means that our bodies aren’t experiencing enough stimuli to stretch, bend, roll, or just move from position to position comfortably. Chances are that you’re reading this while sitting down, hunched over a screen, and your body isn’t using much muscle or breathing very hard to get its work done.
You could try to hold yourself in “good posture” while typing, but “good posture” doesn’t save you in uncontrolled circumstances— what happens when you trip over your child or pet, who just wants to cuddle? Well, now that you’re on the floor, they certainly get their wish. But getting back to your feet is going to be another story.
It comes down to a very learnable thing: the ability to support your own bodyweight in precarious situations. We don’t always bend down and pick up something in a perfect squat, right? What we need is the strength, stamina, and coordination to achieve autonomous control over individual limbs, joints, and our overall bodies.
Enter Animal Flow: the bodyweight, zero-equipment workout that eliminates fear and discomfort around life’s wildness. Derived from yoga, martial arts, and dance, you can set your intensity with each low-impact level, from Beginner to Advanced. Each level contains poses and movements to:
- Strengthen your ability to resist stress by increasing your stamina under tension.
- Center yourself by building core-to-hand and core-to-foot dexterity.
- Release you from inner judgement or expectations by giving you the chance to play, mess up, and expand your limits on your own time.
