Chakra Flow

"The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. This invisible energy, called Prana, is vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive." - D. Chopra

Chakra Focus will tune you into your subtle body, one vortex at a time. From the roots of our feet to the crown of our head, we will use various asanas (poses) and pranayama (breath) techniques to enhance awareness in specific chakras. Class ends with meditation to strengthen our minds and reconnect to ourselves.

Mellow Flow

 

Mellow Flow is a unique and beautiful blend of beginner and intermediate postures that will strengthen and tone the body, as well as soothe the mind and nourish the spirit.  The pace is energetic yet comfortable and at times restorative as we move through flow sequences that build confident alignment in essential yoga poses.  

After gently awakening and warming the body, we progress to flowing sequences investigating the connection between breath, movement and the mind.  It is a place where the body can enjoy deep release and physical rejuvenation. Expect lots of deep stretching & lingering in yummy floor poses. Hands-on encouragement and assisting will help give you a deeper experience.  Progress in your yoga practice doesn’t always occur by “doing”. An equally important aspect of Yoga practice is the ability to let go, to not control, to experience what is without interfering. Meditation and relaxation techniques will also be introduced.

This class is sure to leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and renewed!
