Where Level 1 is the foundations of the Movement Flow system, Level 2 is a whole new exploration with a felt resonance from the Level 1 foundations. All of the skills and concepts learned in Level 1 will be expanded upon in Level 2, and you will be introduced to a new way of moving your body through space with the addition of new soft acrobatics skills.
This is definitely a level up, meaning you need a strong movement practice and a deep understanding of the Level 1 material. This will be a physically demanding course that will test your edges, but like anything in life, the greater the challenge the greater the reward.
Level 2 is all about creativity, power, and expression. If Level 1 is the tree trunk, Level 2 would be the branches and the blooming flowers. If you are seeking ways to expand upon your Movement Flow foundations created in Level 1, and wish to set a safe and strong understanding of soft acrobatics, Level 2 will be exactly what you’re seeking.
Level 2 is comprised of 16 Movements and 8 Categories — all of which build upon the foundations laid down in Level 1 with the exception of new Mono-Arm Transitions, featuring: Macaco, Reverse Macaco, Butterfly kick, and Amazonas. You can think of Level 2 as the creative evolution of Level 1, and for that reason, the course materials in Level 2 are the most potent container for your own movement evolution.
Using the roots laid in the Cartwheels category of Level 1, in Level 2 you will build upon those foundations and learn to orient yourself through space to flip and fly with power and grace. The Macaco, one of our featured Mono-Arm Transitions, is a prime example of a powerful reversed inversion flip that builds from the cartwheel, but yet a much more spicy expression.
Building upon your floor work practice will also be addressed in Level 2. The U-Turn and Infinity Loop — an evolution of Open Door — are ground-based movements that will test not only your proprioception, but also your fluidity, strength, and total body awareness. These movements will test your edges but offer you a most unique and awe-inspiring way of honing your movement practice.
One of the most exciting category evolutions in Level 2 stemming from Level 1 is the Matrix various. Such movements include: Pancake Flip, Twist Around, and Drape Roll. To some, a deep wheel is the end of their backhanding journey… in Movement Flow, it is only the beginning. The Twist around, a seamless transition from table-top position to wheel, is a shining example of this.
In the Level 2 training, you will not only learn the movement skills and categories, but also cover a variety of subjects such as: Mind vs. Matter, Body Balance, Dynamic Flexibility, and Reaction Training — making Level 2 into a holistic movement educational experience.
