A flowing vinyasa-style yoga class that often includes vinyasa, kriya and asana proven to improve strength, cardiovascular health, and flexibility. Most importantly, we teach yoga, not just asana, by including guidance into breath, presence and awareness. This class is appropriate for all levels (however, if you are intimidated by trying something new, we recommend taking a few Gentle Flow classes first). You will be given options in each pose so that you feel challenged, yet successful.
Power Flow is an active, flowing, vinyasa style class with an emphasis on connecting deeply to your own inner guru to guide you through challenging sequences and balancing poses. Practiced in a warm environment, this class focuses on opening the shoulders, hips, and spine as well as strengthening core and upper body. This one hour class is energizing, fun, and suitable for intermediate to advanced practitioners.
We begin with breath and meditation. Gentle warming movements naturally unfold into supported restorative poses. This practice creates ease, body balance, calm, peace, and inner stillness that naturally leads to mindfulness, and is great for reducing anxiety and stress while improving digestion and sleep. Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep - that blissful state between sleep and awake) is sometimes incorporated. Great for all levels.
Gentle & Restorative
Think you have to be young, healthy, fit or flexible to practice yoga? Think again. If you have yearned to try yoga but have been discouraged because you think you are too old, your body type is wrong, you are suffering from chronic health issues, or are working with an injury, this class was designed with you in mind. This class emphasizes asana, as well as breathing practices, pranayama, and meditation. The health benefits of hatha yoga are profound and the vital energy you will feel is amazing. This class is about half gentle, warming flow and half restorative.
We are stronger together! A 45-min community-focused, fun, empowering strength training class designed to improve your overall strength and rev your metabolism. We use dumbbells and your body weight. This is a true strength training format (not cardio and not yoga). We make this class accessible to most ages and levels. We don't just train hard - we train smart.
A fun and inspiring class where we tap into our active energy through music and movement while group training on a spin bike! Great Cardio workout and the ultimate workout when paired with Strength classes. Cycle classes at Flow are both inspired by the energy of the group, and focused on getting you stronger, leaner and more effective on your bike and in life. Flow Cycle emphasizes inspired intensity and mindful awareness. We teach you to really understand, feel, and embody different intensity levels and training methods [an outside brain (computer) can be helpful at times, but advanced awareness inspires ideal intensity]. These classes are now private, small group, classes. Contact us to learn more about how to reserve your bike for a 3-month seasonal class.
