I will be teaching an Energy Flow class and my good friend Rolf Lange will treat you to a relaxing visual meditation at the end of class. Here is an introduction to my Energy Flow class for you to determine if it is a good fit for your practicing pleasure:

The most common translation of the word Yoga is Union.  My experience of Yoga is Freedom – this is why I practice and this is my intention when teaching.  Yoga helps us find freedom of movement in our bodies and our breath.  It also helps free our minds from the constant and stressful treadmill of useless thoughts.  It is a moving meditation that can transport us to stillness.  It is a way to love and heal ourselves so that we can connect with our inner strength.

Energy Flow utilizes traditional and time tested Hatha Yoga postures that are linked together ‘Vinyasa’ style to expand the breath and create heat.  It is a moving meditation that invites students to focus on the sound of their breath and experience a quiet mind.  The body is strengthened and relieved of blockages while the nervous system is calmed and rejuvenated.  This brings the practitioner to a peaceful place where healing can happen.  Join me, bring yourself to your mat and commit to flowing with your breath.  Give yourself permission to release all that no longer serves your highest potential.  Open yourself to the flowing, healing energy of your own Life Force.

Practical Suggestions:

  • Practice on an empty stomach – allow at least two hours after a meal or one hour after a light snack.
  • Wear comfortable stretchy clothing and bare feet.
  • HYDRATE – drink at least half your weight in ounces of water daily.
  • Remember that this is your practice – listen to your body.

MAY ALL SENTIENT BEINGS HEAR THEIR BREATH AND KNOW THAT THEY ARE NEVER ALONE. MAY WE UNDERSTAND THAT BENEATH THE WAVES OF TUMULTUOUS EMOTION LIES AN OCEAN OF PEACE. ~Kimberly
