Flow Movement – “WILD THING”

FLOW

  • (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

‘HOW TO’ FLOW

  • 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 any ranges of motion or balance challenges that you cannot handle = 6 out of 10 in difficulty.
  • stay calm and clear minded (the breathing helps with this).

“WILD THING”

Begin Quadruped -> arm reaches, head/eyes follow: 1st) under other armpit 2nd) up to ceiling

-> From ‘ceiling reach’ transition into ‘high bridge’ (a position in the Turkish Get Up, aka a fallen over side plank)

-> Return and Repeat

-> Can be done with knees on the floor or with knees hovering off the floor (play around with it!)
