Consciousness in Motion
Hatha flow yoga, teaches us to cultivate an awareness that links each action to the next, on the mat and in our lives. It is important to remember that hatha flow is not just any sequence of actions: It is one that awakens and sustains consciousness.
It’s designed to awaken our energy, practitioners bring awareness to different parts of the body and then awaken the inner pathways to flow through the entire field of their being. It has many qualities and benefits, including building internal heat, increased stamina, strength, and flexibility, as well as stress reduction. As we bring the techniques of hatha flow to bear throughout our lives, we open similar pathways of transformation, inner and outer-step by step and breath by breath.
Surrender to Your Mat

Quiet your mind and make meditation part of your modern daily life passive practice. Yin Yoga involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia.
