    Flow Yoga @ Mudra Yoga Studio
    Mar 3 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

    Flow Yoga (Vinyasa) classes use consistent and steady breathing to link a series of poses together in a fluid manner, encouraging the body to move as nature intended. Flow classes tone and strengthen the body while lengthening the muscle tissue to improve overall flexibility. Within the first few practice sessions you will feel strong and calm, more energized and alive, and in time you will awaken in a whole new body. As your practice deepens, you may notice that the physical changes are a by-product of a more empowering purpose. Perhaps you’ll notice that lifelong fears start to dissipate, blocked emotions are released, the mind gets quiet and gains startling clarity, and you experience mental shifts that free you from old thought patterns. Flow All classes are well-rounded and are appropriate to all levels of ability, from the beginner to the experienced yogi.

    Erin integrates a themed-playlist into each class as she guides you to integrate breath and movement.
