Class Descriptions


Our Yoga classes are based on Vinyasa or Flow yoga, also known as breath-synchronized movement. The Sanskrit roots Nyasa means "to place" and vi means "in a special way." Learn how to control the breath while moving through space and how breath initiates movement. Flows/ Vinyasas link postures, balancing the body and clearing energy channels bringing the body back to balance to fully experience the energetic effects of the practice, inhalations are linked to moves expanding the front of the body, creating lightness. Exhalations are linked to movements that engage the abdomen and stabilize us. The breath used in Flow/Vinyasa, ujjayi pranayama or whisper breath, creates a vibration across the soft palate of the mouth, warming the breath as it enters the body.

*At Flow you are invited to flow with the breath in continuous movement in and out of your postures like the waves of the ocean. or linger to savor the moment, connecting to your breath, focus, being present, exploring your true potential. The variation in the classes is derived from altering the asana, i.e. going deeper into the pose or choosing poses with greater dynamic tension, as well as altering the rate at which we flow through the asana. While everyone is encouraged to move at their own pace and to modify the asana to meet their current physical needs/abilities, the more advanced classes are intended to provide those who have been practicing yoga for some time an additional challenge. Listen to your body, examine, breathe. Each practice is unique, yours alone.*
