MANA FLOW

MANA FLOW

January 26, 2024

Supercharge your spirit in this ultimate mind/body experience. Mana Flow is an out-of-this world 30-minute yoga practice that focuses on the supernatural force found in everyone! Dedicated Mandala Flow segments alternated with superpower Mana segments utilizing the Knux hand weights will leave you long, lean and lit. 

Why Try Mana Flow? 

  • Up your balance game. Balance postures in the Mana Flow format during the Intention Expression help strengthen muscles and joints by forcing the muscles, especially core muscles and tiny muscle fibers, to engage immediately to stabilize the body. 
  • Increase your strength! Build strength as you perform Supernatural Sets in Mana Flow. Using the 3lb weighted Knux, these strength exercises are more fluid, challenging both balance components and full range of motion. Supernatural Sets with the cool grips of the Knux allow the hand weight to become more of an extension of the body rather than using a traditional dumbbell. New tools, new results! 
  • Improve pain management. Dr. Natalie Devins, yoga instructor and member of the American Osteopathic Association, asserts, “The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome. Bounce back from stress as you learn to use your breath to control your movement during the challenges that apply in class and in your daily life.

What Is Mana Flow Like?  

Mana Flow is a true flow class. This workout alternates mandala (circular) yoga flow postures that travel all over the mat followed by one-minute supernatural sets designed to sculpt and tone your body using Knux 3-lb. hand weights. This flow and strength combination is where the magic happens!  Set your intention for each round and work your way around the mat as you move through flows that focus on strength, power and positivity for a super mind/body experience.  

Who Are Mana Flow Classes Best For? 

Mana Flow is for all fitness levels. Time management is maximized as this class blends strength, mind-body and balance training for phenomenal results. Mana Flow is customizable for all skill levels to feel challenged and invigorated.  

Is Mana Flow a Good Workout? 

Mana Flow alternates between Mandala flow segments and superpower Mana segments that leave you long, lean and lit. Mana Flow creates stress resilience by physically challenging the body and asking you to breathe steadily through the challenge. As a result of this practice, you can become responsive and less reactive. The Supernatural Set of weighted superhero strength sequences creates the magic for this powerful yoga flow workout.  

How Difficult is Mana Flow? 

5/10 Tap into your power with Mana Flow. Level options are available for the beginner to advanced yogi. Adding the Knux 3-lb. weights will level up your strength, power and positivity.  

How Long Is Mana Flow? 

Mana Flow dedicates 30 minutes towards tapping into your personal power with the perfect blend of strength, mind-body and balance training for phenomenal results.  

What Should I Wear? 

Cover Your Business. Typically, people wear fitted clothing what will offer ample coverage and will stay put, even in Downward-Facing Dog postures.  

Leave Your Shoes Off. Not only does being barefoot help you with stability, but your overall balance and foot strength will improve as a result of working without shoes or socks on.

What Do I Need to Bring? 

Plan to bring your own yoga mat. A yoga mat is a thin, sticky mat that will allow you to protect your joints without slipping around when you’re in an awkward position.  You’ll be getting pretty up-close and personal to the floor, so having your own yoga mat for Mana Flow and other Crunch yoga classes will keep you feeling so fresh and so clean!
