Why Flow Yoga? Have you ever felt like you were rushing through life or operating on a more unconscious level; unaware of what thoughts and feelings were motivating you from moment to moment? For most of us, at some point or another, the answer is “YES”. Sometimes we might even suddenly stop and ask ourselves, “Why did I do that?”, ”How did I get here?”, or simply “Where has the time gone?”
In a flow (or vinyasa as it is called in Sanskrit) style of yoga the breath serves as a link between the body and mind and allows us to stay focused, calm and aware as we move in and out of the yoga poses. We are encouraged to slow down and to bring our heart felt intentions into our movements by linking these intentions to our breath and always making sure that the breath is moving freely and smoothly as we practice.
What most practitioners find is that as they begin to cultivate this ability to open up their hearts and move with greater presence and intension on their mats, that they are able to bring these same qualities into their lives off the mat.
Flow yoga is less about thinking our way through the poses and more about feeling our way through the poses using the breath as our guide. Those of you who tend to over think or analyze throughout your day will find this to be a welcomed break!
Learning how to move consciously moment to moment, breath to breath. We will strive to infuse this practice with a sense of humor, a sense of play. The point is not to judge the practice but to simply get into our bodies and explore.
It is particularly suited for those of you who are either brand new to yoga or who have had some prior experience and are curious about what the flow style of yoga is all about.
