Poses are strung together into cycles in a smooth way to cultivate body awareness and balance. Breathe, sweat and go with the flow!
Slow Vinyasa and Yin style · great for joint flexibility and mobility.
Slow Yoga is a modified of Power Vinyasa Yoga. It’s a gentle, nice and slow basic sequence. Yin yoga focuses mainly on the hips, pelvis, knees and lower back in order to increase joint range of motion, increase body awareness and learn to just let go. Through holding poses for longer periods of time connective tissue is stretched while chronic held tension is released. Relax and renew with this more passive style of yoga.
