This is a traditional Hot Hatha full-body yoga practice that focuses on fundamental poses, posture, body alignment, and mindful breathing. The class moves at a simple, steady, meditative pace. This class is best for any new or beginner student. At the same time, experienced students will be given more difficult variations of poses so they can continue challenging themselves. The class is practiced in a hot room (95-100 degrees) to improve flexibility and mobility. Our students leave this class feeling strong, flexible, and more aware/in-tune in both body and mind.
Warm Flow focuses on the way we move between our postures as well. In essence, we learn to move and flow like water. The class is practiced in a warm room (85-90 degrees) to improve flexibility and mobility. Music is used in this class to help create an energy that is upbeat, fun, and playful. Students can expect to gain lots of core strength, full-body flexibility, and a practice all kinds of fun and exciting poses in a judgment-free environment.
Physically, this class is purely for flexibility. Most of the poses are done seated or lying down and there is a combination of movement/active flexibility and static holds. Static poses are held for up to 3-5 minutes. This makes it perfect for working out any deep tensions in the muscles and connective tissues. The room is non-heated, at a relaxing 75 degrees. Mentally, this practice is all about slowing down, letting go, and taking time to ourselves in a quiet, peaceful environment.
