QiFlow Body Ability

Dawnelle Arthur

"Your body will get better at whatever you do or don't do. If you don't move you will get better at not moving. If you move, your body will allow more movement." -Ido Portal

The QiFlow movement method “wu wei” is a practice in effortless action, strength, beauty and FLOW. It’s a method that constantly evolves and expands as I explore the movement world outside of yoga.

There are five elements to the QiFlow movement method:

1. Body Knowledge
2. SportConditioning
3. PerformanceTraining
4. MobilityFlow®
5. BodyAbility

This video focuses on Element 5: BodyAbility. A practice of movements and shapes that are meant to challenge and change you. As explained in Ido’s statement above…your body will get better at whatever you do or don’t do. At first you will struggle, but through practice and perseverance you will find your way. This is a class you should take at least once per week for six weeks. Nothing is easy until it becomes easy. When it becomes easy, it’s time to make it hard again. Practice what you can’t do. Become a curious student. Being curious and playing curious, makes life more fun. Your body is capable of more than you think. Put the time in and results will happen. Move smart. If you’re a yogi who has only focused on flexibility then take the time to prep yourself by committing to the MobilityFlow® challenge before taking this class. The QiFlow approach is new movement, new results. It takes time, but it’s worth it in the end.

Even though my QiFlow classes are no longer consider ‘yoga’ it is my mission and my path to help create better movers in the yoga world. QiFlow is not meant to replace your yoga practice or your workout/crossfit regime; it's design is to help all movers become more knowledgable, challenged and transformed. One MobilityFlow® and one QiFlow® class per week will prepare your mind and body for your sport. Your sport is yoga. You’re an athlete. Your sport is CrossFit, you are an athlete. If you move your body and train in a system, that makes you an athlete. You need to train for your sport. This is the message of QiFlow. It’s an enhancement method designed to help athletes move and perform at higher level. It’s not yoga, but it’s just as important.
