Mindful Flow

Traditional poses and sequences are often rethought to incorporate ‘juicy’ movements that feel good within the body. Postures are felt from within, transitions from one to the next being just as important as the poses themselves. Mindful flow is about moving in a way that feels good, on that day, with time and space given to explore suggestions and alternatives, as well as to get individually creative on the mat. Prepare to tune in to how your body feels through mindful movement, awareness and breath.

Power Flow – Experts

In Power Flow previous yoga experience is required, movement and breathe are synchronized to create a flowing practice. The Asanas (postures) are linked together in a way that makes sense physically, and creates a moving meditation, where the body becomes strong and flexible, while the mind becomes focused and calm. The pace of the flow can vary, as you are guided into and out of postures with fluidity and attention to alignment. Sophie brings her unique expertise, experience and creativity to the class. Music often forms a component to these flowing classes, which have a fun and playful element.
