FLOW YOGA

FLOW YOGA (VINYASA) / INTERMEDIATE

Class description

This Vinyasa Flow class is designed to build body alignment, awareness, and a deeper sense of connection with your breath, body, and mind while moving. It gives you time to explore your feelings and emotions and to move more mindfully. You will be encouraged to practice at your own pace and listen to your body. The practice consists of traditional poses and sequences: sun salutations, standing poses, seated poses, backbends, and other poses. You will leave the class feeling energized, confident and more present.

Benefits

At the physical level, the overall sensation in the body is one of relaxation as it releases neuromuscular tension. It generates heat in the body which adds cardiovascular benefits. Also, it increases your energy level for the rest of the day, eliminates stiffness and builds flexibility. Vinyasa Flow cultivates a feeling of acceptance for what is happening in the moment, and helps to detach from certain situations, conditions or emotions that persist for longer time. It builds endurance and increases concentration. Vinyasa practice leads to a greater state of self-awareness, body-awareness and breath-awareness.
