Profitraining

The class is based on floor work Technique combined with elements from Acrobatics and Martial Arts. It focuses on different aspects of floor work through the control of energy and anatomy: the organization & coordination of the body while being upside down, how to go in & out the floor in the most economic & flowed way thanks to the use of gravitation and momentum… Through this physical journey, the body enlarges its movement vocabulary. In addition to technique, the class gives a strong emphasis on right preparation of the body in short & long term working, avoiding injuries and dealing with injuries ( joint strengthening , differentiating passive flexibility to active flexibility etc....)
