Vinyasa Flow is a flowing practice linking breath to movement. A continuous sequence of poses that 'flow' from one to another with an inhale or exhale resulting in a fluid, lyrical class perfect for those who like to move.
Flow Foundations teaches the basics of yoga poses and breathing techniques. The class is moderately paced to cultivate strength, flexibility, and balance within a gentle, continuous sequence of postures. Foundations is designed for beginning and intermediate students eager to deepen your understanding and experience of yoga.
Flow is a challenging, joyful Vinyasa practice that connects movement to breath in a vigorous sequence of yoga poses. The class cultivates deep physical opening and absorption of the mind in the rhythm of breath and body. Flow classes introduce inversions, more challenging backbends and arm balances and move at a moderate to fast pace, so knowing the basics is helpful.
Heated Flow is a vigorous class performed in a room heated to 90 degrees. Heat adds a new dimension of challenge, demanding complete focus and absorption in breath and body. Knowing the basics is helpful.
Slow Flow dives deep into a creative exploration of yoga postures, balancing physical challenge with quiet calm. Slow Flow is appropriate for all levels while Slow Flow II/III teaches more challenging poses.
Relax & Renew is an all-levels meditative class of calming, quieting poses and long holds, designed to help you unwind from your day.
