Animal Flow Dublin
What is Animal Flow?
Animal Flow Dublin is a movement fitness class combining multiple disciplines such as gymnastics, capoeira, yoga, martial arts, break dancing to name a few. It is a 100% bodyweight training that mimics the movement of animals (ape, crab, beast, scorpion etc.). It uses a multi-planar movement, which means that your body is moving in every direction.
Animal Flow is more of a practice than a workout. It is a body weight workout designed to increase your fitness level, mobility, flexibility, stability, power, endurance skills and neuromuscular development. The movements are closed-chain exercises which mean that the limbs connect to the ground or another immovable object in a constant fixed position and resistance is created by pushing against it. Animal Flow makes extensive use of close-chain kinetic movements with much of the workout spent in what we call the "Four Pillar stance" where not just two but all four limbs are planted on the ground.
Animal Flow was featured on TV3 Saturday AM (13th February 2016) with Laura Woods and Tommy Martin flowing while having a good craic!
