Retreats are a great opportunity to let go of all the hustle and bustle of your every day routine and make some changes to unwind and reconnect with yourself.
The "Move - Flow - Reconnect" retreat will leave you feel refreshed, renewed and recharged your battery, as well as get your whole body move the way it is meant to and reset your mind and body.
Those 3 components will increase your flexibility, strength and body awareness by learning something new but also meeting other like-minded people.
"Motion is a component of movement, but movement requires motor control which includes stability, balance, postural control, and perception " ~~ Gray Cook
Move - You will learn the fundamentals of Animal Flow moves - Ape, Beast,Crab (the A,B,C of Animal Flow) and components. They will help your body to change positions and directions in a supple and seamless control way.You will move through the primal patterns of crawling, twisting, folding, bending, rolling and more by just using and mimicking animal movements.
Flow - Once you'll get the components of Animal Flow, you'll be able to flow in every direction that your body is intended to. Your body and the space around are your main equipment. Lots of time will be spent on the ground and barefoot. Flow will be mainly done outdoors if weather permits.
Reconnect - The emphasis is on contralateral movements, which means that opposite limbs will move forward, backward, left and right at the same time. This helps to build better body connection and awareness, also acts as proprioceptive exercises to strengthen the core and stabilizer muscles.
Breathing, meditation and barefoot walking will also be part of this weekend to bring more calmness and awareness of your mind and whole body .
