Hollie Palumbo instructs the following:
Prana Flow Vinyasa 1
Prana Flow classes are ritual practices of moving meditation, breath-inspired journeys that offer a complete spectrum of rhythms, from meditative and rejuvenating to challenging and empowering. The emphasis is on a bhavana, or feeling state, that takes us into multi-dimensional sequencing, energetic alignment all within the collective flow. We will connect fully to personal experience, syncopating individual waves of breath, thought, emotion, movement and energy while opening to the power of the group dynamic.
Iyengar Style All Levels
This All Levels class is influenced by the respected teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. Attention is focused on technical alignment, the importance of the breathe and the use of props, such as blocks, straps, blankets and chairs. In an this class, poses are typically held longer than in most other styles of yoga, so that practitioners can pay close attention to the precise muscular and skeletal alignment.
Vinyasa Flow Level 1
Vinyasa flow classes link breath and movement to create a continuous fluid flow of postures. Vinyasa means “breathe-synchronized movement” and the beauty of this class is that the sequence, or “flow”, can be different in each class, even with the same instructor. Level 1 classes are taught at a slower pace to allow you to experience postures fully and to learn to incorporate modifications appropriate for your abilities and limitations.
Restorative yoga is a luxurious practice that entices you to slow down. Experience postures supported by props such as blocks , blankets and bolsters. Gravity and the flow of your breath gently release the body, melting away physical and mental tension and deeply resting the body and the mind.
Vinyasa Flow All Levels
