Flow is a yoga practice based on the premise that the body needs to move in diverse ways to maintain strength and range of motion. Expect to flow from posture to posture with an emphasis on accommodating the needs of different bodies to promote stability and flexibility. Based on vinyasa yoga and Pranaflow, expect a fairly active practice but one built around learning to tune in to what is being felt so that the practice can be customized to individual needs.  Focus will be on targeting areas in the body that are often ignored or underused to encourage overall health in the body’s tissues, creating more space around the joints, as well as soothing the nervous system.

Yin Yoga – Anne-Marie Guedon
A slow-paced style of yoga, poses are held for longer periods of time. Stress is applied to the connective tissues, with aim of increasing circulation and improving flexibility. A meditative approach to yoga, Yin also cultivates inner silence and calmness.
