Joy-Marie Thompson is in the center of the frame- in her family's living room- in a crab position with her left arm framing her head. She is looking down at her right hand on the ground. There is a mantle behind her decorated with Christmas lights, ornaments, and garland. The floor beneath her is hardwood. The photo is framed with ANIMAL FLOW logo and decor: JOY-MARIE THOMPSON in all caps at the top, L1 Animal Flow Instructor at the bottom left, the official ANIMAL FLOW logo at the bottom right.

According to the Official Animal Flow© website, "Animal Flow is ground based movement, made fun, challenging and effective. This system is designed to improve strength, power, flexibility, mobility, and coordination for all levels of fitness enthusiasts..."


I teach classes for beginners who are not experienced with ground movement as well as classes for the intermediate mover who has years of movement history in their toolbox. I always give modifications and am always aware of ability differences. Come take my class and we will practice guiding each to optimal physical experiences!
