What Is Flowyoga?
Flowyoga is a blend of traditional and modern yoga. It is rooted in the ancient system of Tantra, which aims to awaken the Kundalini, balance the chakras, and transform physical energy into meditative energy. Through meditation, we find the stillness that reveals the truth of this oneness.
Flowyoga encourages graceful, expressive movements, which reflect the subtle sensations that arise when moving energy through the body. Transitions from posture to posture are smooth and continuous, like a dance. Attaining extreme postures is not the aim of this yoga practice. The aim is to feel your body, centre your awareness, and relax fully into the moment.
Flowyoga was developed by Kaila Kukla in 1990.
What Is Chair Yoga?
- One-hour class, mostly seated in a chair
- Emphasis on de-stressing, breathing & gentle postures
- Exercises for mind-body connection as a tool for healing & relaxation
- Easy stretches & fluid movements
- Allowances for people to go at their own pace and rest in between poses
What is Yin Yoga?
Restorative and very relaxing, holding postures for 2-3 minutes, with a one-minute resting pose between each asana. This style focuses specifically on the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, low back and thighs. Postures are mainly done on the floor. Participants are encourage to hold the pose, feeling a delicious sensation and apply their breath to achieve a deeper meditation and awareness of the moment and their bodies.
What is Yin/Yang Yoga?
Combination of Flowyoga & Yin Yoga style.
What is Gentle Flow?
Gentle Flow is for those who enjoy the Flow, but at a gentler pace and still honouring the moving meditation we all know and love. Very similar to the regular Flow, but a bit slower and a shorter class time. This might be a nice addition and would offer some variety of yoga style for my Chair or Yin Yoga students. Adaptation and modifications of postures are always welcomed and encouraged. A relaxing class to end the week with!
