- (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).
“Flying Trunk Twist”
-> Begin on side
-> ‘Sweep’ your arm over head and then down to your hips and back.
-> Try to keep your hand as close to the ground as possible throughout.
-> Play with single and double leg variations.
