Hot Yoga: FLOW

May 30, 2024

Let it FLOW! This heated Vinyasa flow class will take your yoga experience to the next level.  FLOW alternates a slow sequence of yoga postures with the same pattern at an increased pace, enhancing your mind-body experience in a studio heated to 95 degrees.

Why Try Hot Yoga: FLOW?  

HOT BOD ALERT! Hot Yoga FLOW sculpts your muscles, improves your flexibility and balance. You’ll leave looking and feeling like a fitness icon. Feel the burn while finding your inner peace.  

Flexibility goals on fire here as you’ll be bending, twisting and posing like a yoga rockstar in no time.  

What Is Hot Yoga FLOW Like?  

Dive into the rhythmic journey of Flow, a 60-minute vinyasa yoga experience that’s not just about striking a pose – it’s about mastering the art of the flow. We kick things off by breaking down the flow at a chill pace, focusing on the nitty-gritty of form, technique, and alignment. Once you’ve got the basics down, we hit the accelerator, cranking up the tempo with a breath-to-movement pattern that promises to unleash your inner warrior.  

Twist, turn, and transition – each flow is a double feature. Round one is your chance to finesse the moves, a deliberate dance of controlled elegance. Round two? Well, that’s where the real magic happens. We’re talking picking up the pace, with optional challenges for those who crave that extra kick. 

Our sequences start off sweet and innocent, but don’t be fooled. As the beats pick up, so does the intensity. Right side, left side – we’re all about balance. Repeat and rev up. Supine, standing, kneeling – we’ll take you on a yoga rollercoaster that ends in blissful relaxation. 

And let’s not forget the grand finale – a well-deserved chill sesh to let the sweat-drenched glory sink in. Because in Flow, we’re not just practicing yoga; we’re becoming the flow, one breath at a time. Get ready to own it, yoga rockstar!
