This class employs the Baptise Power Vinyasa method, which focuses on asana (poses), meditation, and self inquiry and is intended to be adaptable to any level of physical ability. It is a dynamic and vigorous practice that links breath with movement by combining postures through flow. It heals, detoxifies and strengthens the entire body while providing the student with the necessary tools to connect the mind, body and spirit in perfect harmony, allowing the true self to shine through. By bringing together the the dynamic sequences and standing postures (that calm the mind) at the start of class with nourishing benefits of passive yoga poses at the end of class (that remove tension from the body), we begin to discover the stillness in movement and the flow in stillness.
