Our Basic Flow is a safe space for students who are new to yoga, for those who haven’t practiced in a while and for all who want to grow their practice from a strong foundation of postural alignment, skillful breathing and of course cultivate mindfulness and presence.
You don’t need to be strong & flexible, you will improve both through regular attendance and become more aware of the relationship between your mind and body.
Open level classes serve students who have a regular practice and are looking to evolve to the next level, regardless of what that may be. These classes will vary in the degree of difficulty and creativity, offering always variations for every student in class. Classes may include some arm balances and inversions, and no matter what, students should expect to stay focused and be challenged in a friendly and positive way. Our open level vinyasa flow will get students to move in a more challenging pace and at the same time help them to face life changes with more serenity as well as strength.
