Animal Flow and Mobility Workshop: 29 April 2017

Animal flow Yoga Sui

Come join our Yoga coach Sui Wong for a fun workshop on Saturday 29th April 2017 14:30-16:00!

Animal Flow is an innovative fitness programme that combines a wide range of ground-based movement combinations, emphasising multi-planar fluid movement. These movements are designed to have a carry-over into whatever training discipline or sport you currently practice.

In this 1.5 hour workshop we will learn movements from the Animal Flow system, using these movements for metabolic activation and body-weight strengthening. We will then playfully link these movements into dynamic flows. During this workshop Sui will also incorporate mobility drills to complement the Animal Flow movement.

Learn skills in this workshop that you can incorporate into a stand-alone workout or into your fitness training. Come have fun and flow!

 

Review from last Animal Flow workshop at CrossFit London:

“The recent Animal Flow workshop did not fail to be Animal flow Yogaboth fun and challenging. While many of the poses will seem familiar, the combination of different disciplines and dynamic movement will not fail to push you out of your physical comfort zone to really test your control and stability. The fact that Sui is a great instructor – passionate and dedicated, with a great sense of humour, only adds to the fun of this class.” – Steph K

Power Yoga and Mobility class:

Yoga at Crossfit London, was always going to be different. More effective, more challenging, better taught.

Sui , our tutor, sequences classes by bringing together the benefits of mindful movement meditation and flow of Yoga and Animal Flow, combining this with latest scientific understanding of  ‘anatomy trains’ meridians and fascia, getting inspiration from body-weight, calisthenics training, and Kelly Starrett’s Crossfit Mobility Certification training.

The class starts with dynamic energetic flows, linking movement with breath.  Focus is on sequences to improve mobility in shoulders and hips, and sequences to build core strength.  Hand balancing is sometimes included to enhance the playful challenge, always optional!   A variety of techniques will be used to enhance functional flexibility and mobility training, including mobility tools (eg balls, rollers or straps), proprioceptive neural facilitation (PNF) techniques and partner work. The class will close with a guided body-scan relaxation based on mindfulness techniques.  This is a fun friendly class.  All levels are welcomed!

This class links so many aspects of what we do at Crossfit London together: Crossfit, Olympic weightlifting, Power lifting,  Gymnastics, Tumbling, Met-Con, even rowing  are all linked by mobility.

Our class combines the old, with cutting edge methodologies. An appropriate focus on meditation is exactly what many of our busy, successful  clients need.

Crossfit London Yoga classes are reality checked. At least half of our  class  members are  athletes who back flip,  lift heavy weight and do amazing workouts,  They need to learn genuine skills. They need to boost their performance. Mobility for them isn’t an option, its a fundamental need. They go to this class, because it delivers that. Even if you work in an office, these sessions will help you
