Breathe, Balance and Be well. These words sum of the goal of this class. We want your practice to last a lifetime but also improve how you feel in your body today. In this class we take time exploring proper 3 part breathing, safe alignment and how to maximize the health benefits gained from a regular yoga practice. This is intro to intermediate level flow class so that different levels of practitioners can all enjoy their practice together.
How comfortably we move through space begins with the body’s relationship to gravity. We cannot find strength within one movement, without flexibility in another. When there is balance between strength and flexibility we can begin to move gracefully.
A steady practice of Yoga asana, pranayama and meditation can improve the integration of all of these systems, and introduce us to graceful, dynamic movement. Whether flowing as softly as a dancer, or moving as explosively as a sprinter, this class will help you cultivate strength, flexibility, balance and grace in all your actions. Brand new yogis are encouraged to avoid this class until they have the foundational principals down.
