MIXED MODALITY TRAINING
THE EVOLUTION OF FITNESS
FLOW ST8 carefully blends together the best of 8 body & mind modalities into a single practice. Every modality practiced on it's own has it's weak points and limitations, it's only in the UNITY of modalities that we can cover all aspects of wellness and create a "super" workout system.
"Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is essentially your own.”
The Full Circle of Wellness (below) gives a visual on the modalities behind the method.
HOW IT WORKS
We run back to back classes that cycle between Flowbiltiy (Recover / Beginner) and Power Hour (Performance) with each day cycling between a Full, Upper & Lower focus.
How many Power VS Flowbility does one do?
This all depends on your fitness levels. But remember, even the fittest of athletes never train hard every day, so 3 power and 3 flows would be a great ratio for someone quite fit. Someone just starting out would begin with flow only and slowly introduce power!
"YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL"
The most balanced, holistic & compelte fitness system the world has seen.
For those who want
The sweat with a little zen
To be strong but keep flexible
To gain muscle but keep mobile
To lean up but feel good
To feel the power but also relax
To connect with community but go inward
To do performance with recovery
To feel the certainty with the surrender
To train the body with the mind
To live the yang and the yin
To follow principles from the east and the west
To follow the ancient with the modern
This holistic balance is “the way” to get into a state of flow
In this state of flow your greatest self shines through
This sends a butterfly effect through the lives you touch
THE 4 GOALS OF FLOW POWER HOUR
1. BULLET PROOF THE BODY
Every workout has movement preparation incorporated with our 8 principles of FLOWBILITY.
2. DEVELOP ALL ROUND ATHLETICISM
Developing the all round athlete with more ranges and types of movement than any concept on the planet.
3. CALM THE MIND
We start and end each practice with ancient strategies to calm the mind. "To the mind that is still the whole world surrenders."
4. HACK THE FLOW STATE
Much like we warm up the muscles, we also warm up or hack your physiology and work towards techniques that will allow you to tap into your own flow state.
THE 8 PRINCIPLES OF FLOWBILITY
Strengthen our weak muscle groups (usually key stabilizer and core) that create imbalances and lack of flexibility in the body.
Lengthen our tightened and overly contracted muscles that have developed through injury, posture and trauma over time.
We soften tight and hard muscles that have lost their “pliability” and create elasticity in the tendons that have gone hard and stiff.
ACTIVATION / MIND MUSCLE
We activate muscles from toe to head that in many cases are inactive.
We work on releasing years of tension built up through our muscles and tendons.
RHYTHM & FLOW
We develop new movement control patterns, helping you to move with control and grace, like a Roger Federer gliding across the court with little impact on the body.
MOBILIZE & LUBRICATE
We lubricate the joints through creating new ranges of motion and improved mobility in all majors joints.
Prevent dietary inflammation that is stopping recovery with Flow Diet principles.
THE FLOW DIFFERENCE
1. THE ALL IN ONE, HOLISTIC WORKOUT
Why have 8 memberships when you only need one? Our protocol carefully blends the best of 8 modalities to give you the all in one workout experience.
2. PREVENTION & RECOVERY
We work towards creating total body homeostasis, integrating movement prep, recovery and mobility into every session, ensuring we keep you OUT of the physio, not stuck in it.
3. THE BODY & MIND AS ONE
We believe the two are connected and should not be treated separately, both are integrated into every session.
4. PRACTITIONER LEVEL TRAINERS
All trainers have participated and been certified in our Holistic Performance Practitioner Program.
5. HIGH PERFORMANCE COMMUNITY
Our strength lies in our people, and we naturally attract a healthy, like minded community all looking to improve flow in their lives and the world.
6. PROGRAMS BUILT ON SCIENCE & STRATEGY
Our training systems are built on the science and strategy of P.R.O.V.R.B.S (Progression, Regularity, Overload, Variety, Recovery, Balance & Specificity) meaning no training blindly chasing a calorie burn or sweat.
7. BIOHACKING THE FLOW
Our training utilises modern and ancient bio hacking strategies to hack the state (our physiology) and tap into flow.
8. THE WORKOUT WITH A SOUL
Our workout principles are heavily influenced by zen philosophies and are a modernised approach to spirituality.

The 5 principles of flow diet are designed to remove stagnation, inflammation and imbalances. Getting you vibrating high, glowing and flowin!
Our 12 principles of a mind in flow are designed to free your mind of judgement and attachment and to let go of old stories or patterns not serving us!
