This is an awareness based practice, less about the quickness of the flow and more about the quality of presence. In this class, we will cultivate intimacy with our bodies, breath, and life through awareness. We will also be cultivating awareness through alignment, using props and interesting variations and fun experiential asanas to deepen relationship and understanding of the body. We will explore the anatomy of the body, the psyche, and the emotional body, using fun interesting variations and props to venture into different parts of ourselves that we don’t always have access to. Utilizing strong alignment and anatomy knowledge, our teachers think outside of the box, creating a new experience every time, weaving it all into a flow that’s accessible and enjoyable for all body types and all levels of experience.

Slow Flow Vinyasa
This class takes the flow of a vinyasa class and slows it down so that it becomes a deeply therapeutic and restorative practice. Perfectly suitable for all levels of practitioners, slow flow allows you to take the time you need to meet your body wherever it’s at, and gently guide yourself towards greater relaxation, openness, and ease. This is a perfect class to transition you from the higher pace productivity of your day to the winding down slower restfulness of your night.
Qi means "life energy". Gong means "cultivation". To cultivate life energy is to bring more power, vitality, and intelligence to the body, and more wisdom, peace, and clarity to the heart and mind.

This class integrates many styles of Qigong into a fun and dynamic class that will continuously challenge your mind and body in new and interesting ways. The class usually begins with breathing exercises, warm-ups, stretching and strengthening exercises, balance and postural exercises, self-care exercises for organs, joints and connective tissues, brain games for proprioception, and sound toning for the nervous system. Classes always end with a moving meditation flow practice and guided seated meditation.
