Nikol Kallinteris instructs the following:
This class unites ujjayi breath with continuous movement to create vinyasa flow. The breath-synchronized movement includes a variety of poses smoothly transitioning from one asana into the next both quickly and slowly, allowing for a relaxing, invigorating, meditative and reviving total body muscular and cardio work out. The student can expect to build internal heat, increase heart rate and oxygen consumption, sweat and release toxins, while building strength, flexibility and endurance. Vinyasa flow is an overall physical and mental work out (a moving meditation) as the student learns to discover peace in the midst of challenge…this state of mind is known as “yoga bliss” or “the yoga zone.”
*This class is suitable for ambitious beginner students as well as practicing yogis.
The mellow flow class offers a beautiful combination of beginner to intermediate poses inviting students of all levels into a tranquil environment which serves to restore, strengthen and tone the body while soothing the mind and nourishing the spirit.
*This class is suitable for students of all levels.
Prepare to challenge yourself as we move through deeper expression of poses. We will use static and dynamic movement to build and release energy, and to create the intense heat that fuels the powerful inner flame. Fire is the element of transformation, both creative and destructive; holding the power to shift your perceived limitations by burning off negative energy while encouraging your strength and endurance to come forth and guide you into the blissful light that you are.
*Please stretch as you wait for class to begin.
**Not recommended for beginner students.
