Flow Movement – “CP-COBS” w/ Ball


  • (def) : also known as the zone, flow is a mental state in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity.

Interestingly, this is also a pretty good definition of Mindfulness.

‘HOW TO’ FLOW / be mindful

  • Anatomically‘ match your breathing with your movements : whenever you ‘get smaller’ (flex) let yourself exhale – and whenever you ‘get bigger/wider’ (extend) let yourself inhale.
  • Do not force anything (like ranges of motion or balance challenges) = 6 out of 10 in difficulty.
  • stay calm and clear minded (the breathing helps with this).


-> Imagine a normal transition from ‘Childs Pose’ into ‘Cobra/Upward Facing Dog’ (A ‘prone press-up’ is also performed in the video = play with it! have some fun 🙂

-> Take this normal transition movement described above, BUT…. squeeze a Tennis ball between your feet / toes the whole time!

-> SUGGESTION: keep knees bent and the feet off the ground.


Play around with this movement for a week – AND PLEASE : give me feed back!

Let me know what movement issues you have, and I will suggest a ‘plan of attack’ in future video/Blog – & – if it helps YOU, tell anyone else you think it can help.

And as always,

Stay tuned for more…
