Animal Flow Level 1 Workshop
Mar 9, 2019 @ 12:30 pm| $595
Join us for the Animal Flow Level 1 Workshop at the beautiful Yogabliss facility on Mercer Island. Animal Flow is the ground-based movement program that combines elements from different bodyweight disciplines, including gymnastics, hand balancing, and yogic-style exercises, with animal locomotion patterns. The L1 course is an intensive two-day workshop (12 hours total) where you’ll learn all 30 Level 1 moves, including regressions, progressions, and variations for all skill levels. You’ll explore how and when to use each movement individually, as well as how to link them together into flows of your own design. This is also your first step toward becoming a Certified Animal Flow Instructor or Specialist. It is open to yoga instructors, yoga practitioners, fitness professionals, and fitness enthusiasts.
About the Course
You’ll cover all 6 elements of Animal Flow, including the Traveling Forms (the “ABCs” of animal movements); Switches and Transitions; Wrist Mobility; Activations; Form Specific Stretches, and, of course, Flows. The workshop starts with base positions, which systematically build in difficulty and complexity over the two days. Movements are taught within the context of scientifically-based concepts relevant to anyone working in health and fitness industries.
Your registration includes:
– Complimentary eVideo version of the Animal Flow 2.0 video (retail value: $49.95)
– Hard copy of the 74-page Student Manual

The workshop is open to persons of all skill levels.

About the instructor: Clif Harski
Clifton Harski has a long history as a student of human movement, making him a natural fit as an Animal Flow Master Instructor. A lifelong athlete and collegiate basketball player, Clifton holds a degree in kinesiology from SDSU and has been in the fitness industry for more than eight years. He currently is the director of programming and national head coach for Fitwall, the popular new workout program that incorporates high-intensity interval training with innovative wall equipment system.
Clifton is not just an amazing athlete; he is also an incredible instructor. In just the last 3 years he has taught more than 1,500 people throughout the US, conducting over 100 workshops covering different fitness systems for multiple companies. In addition to his work with Animal Flow and Fitwall, he currently works with KB Athletics to certify coaches in the proper instruction of kettlebell training.

Clifton believes that the most important and least talked about piece of fitness is movement.

He frequently says, “If we can move better, we will move more, and if we move more, we will see better results.”
