The Flow Yoga class is 75 minutes long. From a typical class you can expect a mixture of both “Hatha” and “Vinyasa” style yoga.
Modern yoga classes consider Hatha style to be the slow paced, broken down and fully explained, held-for-a-few-rounds-of-breath type style.
Whereas ‘Vinyasa’ (‘to place with purpose’) works with the breath to create a flowing movement of poses that link together in a sequence called a Vinyasa Flow.
We move slowly to start off with and break down the poses we are ‘flowing’ through, so this slow flow is suitable for beginners.
It is also especially good for dancers who want to bring a fluid, strong, graceful energy to their performances; flowing with yoga is a dance in itself. Whilst the final flow section of class can be a faster pace, this is a very inclusive supportive environment where you can take any variation you need.
Every class starts with mobilisation, pranayama practice, classic sun salutations, the theme of the week’s flow, seated postures, a supine twist and a relaxation meditation to close.
