Animal Flow – Part 1

If I would describe animal flow class in a sentence, I would say “ Poetry of motion”. At the very beginning when I found out about “Animal flow” online, I was fascinated by their cool moves. I have always loved bodyweight programs.

I am the kind of person who would always go try something new out there specially if its related to exercise to music or bodyweight training. And of course anything that has the name “animal” on it would caught my attention 🙂

At the beginning of 2018, I had a plan to take the workshop & I was eager to learn the moves & like any other workshop, planned to teach it.  

I attended the workshop on Sep 2018, Little did I know that its much more than being in a cool position. The amount of mental stillness & mind body connection was beyond describing. I have never in my entire life (not even in a yoga class) felt that amount of connection between my mind & my body.

I was as if i was listening to the soundtrack of my body; I was speaking to my mind & heart. I felt I was getting to know my body & capabilities from the very start. And it was the first time I really felt the ground, no shoes, just me and my body.

At the start I was a bit rigid to create my own flow & started watching different flows online & I would try to make it on my own & I failed. The beauty of this program is that it has endless ways to create your own flow. It’s not constricted to a certain music genre, format or certain rules that you need to follow.

One day I decided to end my regular workout with a flow & I was really enjoying it that I didn’t notice I was flowing for 30 mins. I let my body guide me & my mind just followed.

This article is just about the spiritual aspect of animal flow to me. I will write another article about how those animal moves would help anyone reach his or her fitness goals.

I am also waiting for my exam results & planning to start my classes right away. Xx
