Slow Flow is a mindful, slower paced yoga class that is meditative and emphasizes peace and calmness of body and mind. Poses are held for a longer period of time to teach principles of proper physical and energetic alignment. This means that you can plan on taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving to each breath.
The challenge in the class comes from holding postures for a longer period of time and the simultaneous steering of consciousness to the awareness of breath and movement that is potent, and profound. Breathing and mindfulness practices are taught in simpler sequences.
This class is approachable for both beginners and more experienced students. It is a great place to start if you are new to Flow-style yoga or anyone wanting a methodically paced, “softer” class that still emphasizes the connection between breath and movement.
