8am-10am: Therapeutic Vinyasa style yoga Asana
Using a flowing, focused sequence of postures, we will address the fundamenatal asanas to build a deeper understanding of postural bio-mechanicss and learn to manage common areas of pain, tightness and weakness in the body. Though the practice is strength and fitness building, Flo creates a strong focus of awareness on the subtleties of the physical postures, core-strength, and the movement of the breath in the body. There will be alternatives given to those whose injuries or postural peculiarities prevent them from performing a posture with total comfort and safety. This practice will be of benefit to all, beginners to advanced students/teachers.
