Why Flow Yoga?
Flow yoga is a faster-paced form of Hatha yoga practice, often known as Vinyasa Flow. It gets its name from the smooth way that the poses are run together in a flowing sequence. It is a form of yoga that focuses on fluid movement in unison with the breath, and because of this it offers a range of both physical and mental benefits. Physically, you’ll improve your range of motion and feel re-energised .Mentally, the synchronisation of movement and breath helps to relax, calm and re-focus the mind.
Is Flow Yoga for me?
If you are interested in improving your strength, flexibility and balance at the same time as getting a full body workout then a regular Flow practice is for you! The classes are carefully designed to provide you with a balanced and progressive practice that’s accessible for all. They offer a space where you can connect with, challenge and transform your body.
What can I expect?
Each class runs for 60 minutes. Classes start with several rounds of Surya Namaskara (short flow sequences to get you warmed up) and then progress into a balanced sequence of standing and then seated postures (asanas). We will finish with some breath work (pranayama) and well-deserved relaxation that will send you home feeling re-focused and energised, ready for the day ahead! A basic level of mobility and fitness is advisable.
What should I bring?
Please bring your own mat and dress as you would for a fitness class, we do the class in bare feet. Bring a bottle of water to keep hydrated! Basic props (foam blocks, straps, blankets), will be provided and may be used in class to help you get deeper into the asanas and provide support. Please note on your first class, your instructor will ask you a few general questions about your well-being. Prior to entering the class you will be asked to fill in a medical screening form (this is standard procedure for all participants).
