Slow Flow is a slower paced Vinyasa flow for beginner to intermediate yogis. More advanced yogis are welcome to come review the basics and challenge themselves holding poses for longer. This class is perfect to de-stress, slow down and find your breath. Open Level Flow is an intermediate Vinyasa Flow that’s challenging, yet leaves you feeling refreshed and invigorated. Fun Flow is a Vinyasa Flow class with an emphasis on having fun and moving like yourself. This flow leaves room for more challenging postures, as well as offering modifications that include everyone in the practice.
