Slow Flow is a mindful, slower paced yoga class that is meditative and emphasizes peace and calmness of body and mind. Poses are held for a longer period of time to teach principles of proper physical and energetic alignment. This means that you can plan on taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving to each breath.
The challenge in the class comes from holding postures for a longer period of time and the simultaneous steering of consciousness to the awareness of breath and movement that is potent, and profound. Breathing and mindfulness practices are taught in simpler sequences.
This class is approachable for both beginners and more experienced students. It is a great place to start if you are new to Flow-style yoga or anyone wanting a methodically paced, “softer” class that still emphasizes the connection between breath and movement.
Carin is a Colorado native that began her yogic journey over ten years ago. The beautiful, holistic pull of yoga drew her to complete her teacher training in 2011 and then to leave the corporate world to teach full time and pursue her advanced certification in 2013. Carin’s passion is creating a space for other yogis to deepen their practice with classes that integrate yogic teachings, nurturing physical poses and lots of loving energy. Teaching classes ranging from yoga basics, vinyasa flow, restorative, yoga nidra and senior chair yoga, Carin enjoys working with all kinds of yogis, finding their roads to discovery fuel her own. A new Crested Butte transplant, she is honored to join us here at Yoga for the Peaceful and is looking forward to both sharing and learning with the knowledgeable group of yogis here.
