Fluid Grace: Prana Flow Yoga by Candlelight

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Al Green Theatre // Bring Your Own Mat  

FREE FOR MEMBERS (WITH ADVANCE REGISTRATION)

 

Prana Flow Yoga, created by global Vinyasa pioneer Shiva Rea, weaves vinyasa flow, tantric philosophy, and ayurvedic wisdom to create movement practices that are sustainable, creative and connect you to the rhythms of nature we find alive within our bodies.

Senior Teacher, Nicky Poole will guide you through the Jala Namaskar, a unique sun salutation that honors the nourishing and hydrating truth that we are 70% water. This is an important practice today where we are often disembodied and disconnected from natural sources of renewal.  This class will introduce Ayurvedic theory of the elements, an introduction to the methodology and lineage of Prana Flow Yoga, and a luxurious, liquidy movement experience designed to take you into a deep state of flow.  You will leave feeling nourished, hydrated and fully alive!  All levels of yoga practice are welcome as modifications will be provided to make this accessible to all!
