SLOW FLOW AND HATHA Yoga
These classes begin with gentle breathing exercises to calm the nervous system before moving onto sequences and postures that are designed to develop functional strength and increased mobility. A perfect combination to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Classes are designed for all levels of experience, including people who have never practiced yoga before and those with injuries. Each class ends with relaxing, supported postures to ease both body and mind. The movements practiced in these classes are heavily influenced by Katy Bowman's movement research. The approach to both the breath work and movement is taught in a way that is trauma sensitive, and influenced by the work of Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Matthews.
