All Level Yoga Flow- Mondays 6:00-7:00PM, Wednesdays 6:00-7:30PM

Class will begin with a brief discussion of yoga philosophy and practical applications of yogic practices that can be applied to our daily lives. Each class will touch on various aspects of the 8 limb path, following will be a pranayama practice emphasizing the importance of breath awareness and control to cultivate homeostasis and balance. The vinyasa flow will build strength as well as flexibility to embody our potentials and expand our freedoms through range of motion. Class will always end with guidance into and then back out of meditation.  We will encourage inner work by building the bridge between body and mind.  I plan to teach a class with various pose options to accommodate beginners as well as intermediate to advanced students.
