Flow further explores the holistic concept of Yin and Yang as the transfer of dynamic or passive energy through all meridians of the body, helping students find synergy between their breath and movement. A low impact experience, Flow may be tailored to a wide variety of participants whose needs vary, and is particularly effective with elderly students who experience reduced flexibility and mobility.
Dynamic uses repetition to fine-tune technique and give an intense, power-oriented bodyART experience. Through a methodical and systematic series of drills and proprioceptive exercises, students work to achieve maximum efficiency and control of their body awareness.
Contact is a training to supplement all bodyART formats. It teaches how to provide safe, effective and comfortable tactile adjustments to students, both hands-on and unassisted, to help them enhance key movements, deepen their focus and intensity, and keep the energy flowing in all positions throughout class.
Stretch is a variation of bodyART Original that focuses more deeply on active stretch and flow, resulting in increased range of motion and flexibility. Many of the exercises used in Stretch can be incorporated into the warm up or cool down phases of other bodyART formats.
Myofascial is inspired by cutting edge exercise science and designed to open the five primary myofascial body chains that connect muscle to bone and bone to bone. This format offers a deep understanding of the body's myofascial chains, and incorporates that knowledge to finely tune the athletic performance and potential of students.
Pure builds on the foundations of bodyART Original by incorporating a higher level of dynamic strength work, additional myofascial lengthening and increased cardiovascular endurance. Of all the bodyART formats, Pure helps you find the most equal balance between strength, stretch and stamina.
Our logo was developed in 2000 and means wholeness (pronounced as "quán-bú"). It reflects the bodyART concept and approach as a holistic training for body, mind and soul – the physical, the emotional and the mental. By fusing the western lettering bodyART and the Far Eastern symbol of wholeness / completeness our result is the synergy between a western and eastern workout. The Asian character was designed by graphic and web designer, Bruce Yim and created in collaboration with Swiss artist, Fritz Bossardt.
