Hot Flow

The Hot Flow practice is designed as a mixed style practice, blending both the Hot Series with Ashtanga principals. Ashtanga was made popular by Pattabhi Jois, and is also known as vinyasa yoga, or power vinyasa.  You will practice some of the 26 postures from hot series,  with additional postures from other branches of practicew,  and a variety of fluid movements. Classes may also offer a focus such as arm balances, inversions and pranayamas (breathing exercises). This series is a dynamic and thoughtful blend between two lineages of yoga – Bishnu Ghosh and Krishnamacharya. 26 & Flow is taught in a heated room.
