Class moves at a slow, meditative pace allowing students time to explore alignment and fundamental aspects of the postures. The class provides instruction and demonstration of proper body mechanics in a variety of poses as well as how to utilize props for support. After learning the basics, students will leave feeling confident to attend any level one or all levels classes.
PodFlow (Level 1 & All Levels): PodFlow classes embody the true spirit of vinyasa yoga, breath-synchronized movement. Vinyasa yoga is a gradual progression that connects one pose to the next. The focus is on moving with breath control through the power of inhaling and exhaling, creating a deeper awareness on all levels. The classes generally begin with a warm up through Sun Salutations and progress with sequences that build strength and flexibility. Classes are diverse, as the specific teacher will bring their own creative element, and each class focuses on proper alignment techniques and safe and intelligent sequencing progressions. PodFlow 1 is an entry level class but is also suitable for all levels, from the beginner to more seasoned practitioner. Classes are 60 or 75 minutes long.
Pod Flow (Level 2): In this dynamic Level 2 class, more challenging postures or options for advanced variations are introduced that build on the fundamentals of the PodFlow 1 class. For example, inversions, binds and/or arm balances may be included. Classes are diverse, as the specific teacher will bring their own creative element, and each class focuses on proper alignment techniques and safe and intelligent sequencing progressions. Previous experience with vinyasa yoga is highly recommended before attending PodFlow 2, as classes can move at a faster pace than the level 1 classes and teachers expect the students to have some familiarity with the basic poses. Classes are 60 or 75 minutes long.
