Slow-flow yoga is a weekly class designed to help you relax, de-stress, and unwind from the demands of daily life.
This beginner-friendly class offers gentle and easy-to-do stretches, strength and balance postures, simple flows with the breath, and grounding meditations to calm the mind and nourish the nervous system. It's aimed at helping you release the stress, tension, and pent-up energy accumulated throughout your day to shift you out of overwhelm and into ease and relaxation.
Here's what you need to practice:
Prior to class, make sure to do a test run with ZOOM. You can register through your desktop or download the app to your smartphone or iPad.
Make sure that your audio and video are working and set up your computer or device so that I can visually see you while you stand on your mat. This allows me to provide guidance. Also, be sure to set up somewhere where there is no backlight.
When it's time for class, click the link and if needed, enter the password. If there is a problem, text me so that we can work through it together.
Please set up your space beforehand. This includes laying out your mat to ensure you have adequate space to move around easily. Have any props you want to use nearby such as blocks, straps, blankets, pillows, etc. The room should be uncluttered and noise-free, with limited distractions. Feel free to light candles or incense to set the mood and help you feel comfortable so that you can easily drop in.

Get creative! The best thing I can recommend is to have one or two thick towels or blankets available, particularly if you need height for your seated poses or head during reclining poses. Use a belt or dish towel in place of a yoga strap. You can use books or other household items in place of blocks. If you have your own props, use them!
