This soothing gentle practice focuses on moving slowly into basic yoga poses while using the breath as a tool to remain present and mindful. The slow pace of this of this class allows you to enjoy each pose. Expect lots of stretching and lengthening with a heavy dose of relaxation to wrap up your practice and leave you feeling great. Be sure to bring your mat, blocks and straps to take full advantage of this practice.
When we are always quickly moving, multi-tasking through our days, what are we missing out on? Have we had the opportunity to stop and smell the roses and be present to our lives, our hearts, our bodies and even more importantly our breath. How many times have you gotten up in the morning, brushed your teeth while checking your phone, eating breakfast while emailing, forgotten the drive to work and then everything from the moment you arrived.
The magic of a slow flow, the art of moving slow gives us the opportunity to be present to life. To be present to your body and your breath, not only on the mat, but in all areas of your life. (source: yogacara)
