We will get to know our own unique body through a physical flow. A great space for intermediates to learn technique, along with modifications, and for seasoned practitioners to challenge themselves as we focus on strength & energy combined with balance & mindfulness. Be prepared for a grounding yet energetic practice that challenges both the mind and body.
This class will focus on the building blocks of Vinyasa Yoga: linking breath with continuous, flowing movement. A great class for beginners or intermediate students looking to go back to the basics, we will breakdown poses, and learn correct alignment and breathing cues so that students become more confident in continuous movement and in modifying poses for personal practice. Pranayama to begin, an energetic flow practice in the middle, and restorative, calming techniques to wind down at the end of the day.

MEDITATIVE FLOW (Beginner Friendly)
The focus of this class is the integration of: asana (poses), pranayama (breathing) and dhyana (meditation).
In this class we will practice the same basic sequence of yoga poses in every class. It is through the repetition of a practice that we begin to appreciate the subtitles of our experience. In the beginning we learn the poses and transitions between the poses. Once we understand the poses and the transitions we can turn our attention to the breath. As we practice synchronizing our breath with the movements and stillness of the flowing sequence we engage with the flow as a breathing practice. Eventually through repetition and letting go into the flow itself the practice becomes a moving meditation. It is through repeated practice of a form and letting go into that form that we arrive at a place of meditation.
Suitable for those who want a slower, deeper practice with a focus on the connective tissue in the joints: shoulders, knees, hips. Especially if you have a Yang physical practice from lifting weights, sports, Power yoga, Yin yoga will work on the connective tissue that doesn’t often get stretched in Yang practices. The class starts with a few short Yin poses of the theme of the day, where students can access the qualities of energy in each pose. The class proceeds with a flow sequence to warm up the body and then deeper Yin poses where each position is held for a few minutes or longer so that the practice goes deep into your connective tissue and deep in your joints to provide relief and healing. *Suitable for beginners & seasoned practitioners
After an introduction, Chris DiMeglio will lead a 20-minute guided meditation, followed by a Dharma talk and then open the floor to discussion and/or questions. All are welcome!
