Gentle flow is a less strenuous hour long practice consisting of basic asana's (postures), put together in a conscious, deliberate and secure flow coinciding with the breath. You'll be guided through postures in a flowing style, beginning with the basic poses, but allowing for more challenging poses based on your practice level. Props are encouraged to allow the body to fully achieve each pose comfortably. This is a great class for students looking for a more gentle experience, those who are new to yoga or those who need a change of pace, yet still have the option to take it to the next level.
