Rest Day

For those of you who are curious about what kind of training Laney and Ramman are doing these days, here's a glimpse of some of the movements we are dedicating a lot of our time to, something you probably have never heard of: Floreio Art.

Floreio requires and develops flexibility, breathing rhythm, strength, balance, fluid movement, agility, focus, stamina, and mental and emotional openness (just to name a few). It is also a great compliment to Parkour, acrobatics, dance, and pretty much being in great condition.

Ramman has a lot of experience with this kind of movement with his background in Capoeira (Floreio is a sub-catagory of Capoeira), dance, and acrobatics- and he is very focused on refining these skills in order to reach a high level of 'flow'. Laney, on the other hand, has very little experience with this sort of athleticism as her background is in more traditional sports and physical activities. She has been trying out all sorts of new sports and ways of training since hanging up her frisbee cleats and is eager to get eyebrows deep into Floreio- so far the training has been challenging and fun, and we are both excited to keep it going!

Here is a video of our 'teacher'. He is a friend of ours who lives in Isreal and is giving us tips and advice online to help us acheive the master flow. This is hopefully what we will look like after some good training!
