Flow Movement – “Flying Trunk Twist”


  • (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.


Add this movement into your practice this week!
