What is Slow Flow Yoga?
Slow Flow is meditation in motion; a mindful flow that practices slowing down and moving with more awareness and grace. This method encourages flowing and transitioning with the breath, gently opening the body, and developing more strength and internal awareness.
In essence, Slow Flow was developed to promote breath awareness while moving slowly and gracefully in the body. The result is a much more dynamic relationship between the breath and body, as well as an enhanced appreciation for both. With the incorporation of yin and vinyasa yoga, this practice allows students to find inner and outer strength through dynamic postures and poses.
What makes Slow Flow unique?
This practice gives students the space to listen to their bodies, giving importance to the act of slowing down and moving with intention. Slow Flow teaches us to recognize why we move with the breath and why situations arise, which takes the method well beyond the physical state. Deepening and staying in connection with the breath ultimately deepens the connection with the self.
What are the benefits of Slow Flow?
Each time you step on the mat, you receive what you need from the practice! Because movement is slower, Slow Flow is tremendously therapeutic, nurturing a deeper connection of breath and movement, grace and strength.
Studies have shown that slow movement with awareness can help alleviate:
- Chronic pain and arthritis
- Body awareness
- Cardiovascular health
What happens in a Slow Flow class?
Each class is based upon what is needed each day, with the intention of gaining more understanding and moving more deeply into balance. The main intention is to promote awareness and understanding of subtle body movement and needs, as well as inspire daily internal evolution.
Find strength and grace through Slow Flow on Fridays from 7:30am – 8:30am.
