What is Floor Flow®?
Floor Flow is a brand of movement instruction that fuses primal movement and dance-based floor work techniques into easy-to-learn sequences that emphasize fluidity, control, and joint mobility.
By practicing these combinations and drills, you will build functional strength, body awareness, and unlike yoga or strength training, musicality. Floor Flow requires no equipment, but socks, knee pads, and sleeves are recommended for some techniques.
The floor is your apparatus.
Floor Flow® Tutorials for Purchase:
Whether on your feet or hands, in the air or on the ground, fluidity is the mastery of weight transfer. The Floor Flow tutorials are traveling body weight conditioning movements and smooth transitions that provide an ongoing dynamic stretch. The best part is, by practicing these sequences, you are learning skills that you can easily mix and match to create your own flows.
