SLOW FLOW YOGA
MEDITATION IN MOVEMENT
Slow vinyāsa flow is a dynamic practice that follows the breath. Moving fluidly between postures develops stability, flexibility, strength and focus, creating a state of meditation in movement.
Follow the breath
Vinyāsa yoga classes connect conscious breathing with movement to gradually build a dynamic practice and create a feeling of a flow. With time and repetition it helps us to develop concentration and reach a meditative state of mind. Vinyāsa practice also cultivates agni, the fire of purification, and develops awareness that helps to free us from negative saṃskāra, or patterns, in our life. In slow flow classes we allow more time in each asana in order to fully experience it in relation to our breath and gentle adjustments.
What to expect
We will start the session with prāṇāyāma and then explore how can correct breathing lead us safely into āsana and help us to develop concentration and correct posture. We will take our time to explore each āsana to find the sweet spot where we can relax. Every slow flow vinyāsa class is different but they originate in ashtanga vinyāsa yoga. I often work with specific topic or intention for the practice. Open to all levels of practitioners.
