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
