Gentle Vinyasa

This is a gentle flow practice integrating traditional sun salutations with strengthening warrior postures. Because kinesthetic memory builds only through consistency of practice, repetition of movement is used to deeply open into the undernourished pockets of tension within the body and cultivate a sense of ease and stability. An excellent introduction to the profound benefits of breath linked movement. The flow sequence is always sealed by long held restorative asana.
