Yoga Express is a one-hour flow class for folks with limited yoga time! All levels are welcome.
These beginning flow classes offer the basics of breath yoga postures, which will give you fundamental basis for a strong yoga practice. It is great confidence builder for beginners, as well as an opportunity for those who have been doing yoga for years to reconnect with their practice.
Experience the connection between breath and movement from a new perspective, with minimal weight-bearing stress on hands and wrists. This hands-free flow preserves the spirit of vinyasa yoga characterized by postures carefully sequenced with breath with emphasis on standing leg strengthening postures, standing balances and core strengthening postures. Appropriate for all levels, including beginners.
This one hour flow class is similar to a flow level 2 class, but a slightly faster pace. Modifications will be offered for newer students. Great for yogis on a quick lunch break!
Slow Flow and Restorative
The first half of class is a slower paced flow class designed to wake up muscles and improve range of motion. Class will end with a restorative practice, using props to support the body in a variety of poses. This class is appropriate for beginning students.
