Turn the corners of your mouth up into a smile! In this Vinyasa style flow class we will dive deeply into our practice and our hearts. Learning how to open up and embrace what life brings us is the key to allowing happiness to blossom from within. To do so, we need to stop living from the past and start exploring the joy of living in the present moment. What are you holding on to that’s no longer serving you? In what areas of the body and mind can you release and let go? This class is centered around exploring the parts of the body where we tend to hold on to tightness and tension, and noticing exactly how intertwined our physical experience on the mat is with the emotional. By becoming present with our breath and truly listening to what the heart tells us we can start letting go of the old and make space for new, beautiful experiences to enter our lives! We’ll flow intuitively, letting our bodies speak for us, and then move into longer holds to explore the magic of being alive and present in the now.
Rachel is always eager to introduce people to the bliss of practicing yoga, providing every student with a space to safely play in the art of yoga. Join Rachel for a flow class appropriate for all levels plus a Q&A session. Please bring a yoga mat & water bottle.
