“The Killer S.F.S.:Studies for Sharpness, Fluidity and Smoothness” from the Killer Path Training Method
July 17th | 6hrs intensive

This class is an extract from the “Killer Immersion Vol.2” of the Killer Path Training Method by Valenteena Ianni.
Lectures and handouts about the entire program will be given just to those who attend the Killer Immersion Vol.1 & 2.
If you want to attend The Killer Immersion vol.1, vol.2 or vol.1+2, both offered at Gothla.Uk 2020, go to the correct link.

In this Killer Path Exposure Valenteena will present her study for the SMOOTHNESS, covering many soft and sinuous movements and different kind of undulations through arms, body and space. Her routines mix several arms combinations with hips shapes and movements into the space, in order to develop harmony, softness and FLUIDITY even at high speed. You will practice to mix the SHARP with the smooth at the same time, bringing home new exercises and routines for your training practice. (This part is a hard drilling section, please bring water!)
To maximize the experience, during the last part, Valenteena will incorporate these combinations into a mini-choreography on which will be asked you to add some personal stylization.
